There isn't another place I can put this, so here it is...
I'm working on a hand written score (from the manuscript), which frankly looks AMAZING in real life. So I scanned it, instead of copying it to Finale (computer software), and I would love to print it the best way possible! But I run into this simple problem: It's grey and I want it to be black! I mean that the lines, the notes, the dynamics are all grey-ish, while they should be black.
Scanning into B&W mode doesn't work, nor anything I tried with GIMP (the 'antithesis', 'colouring', etc...)
Here's the image:Linky to higher quality image
I would really like it to be much bolder, if not completely black (like everything that has some color turned to black, while everything else turned to white). I can delete all the accidents (from the pencil, or the scanned image), but about the black? What now?
Here's another example of an image that's correctly colored (since it's coming straight from the computer):
I'm not a graphic artist really, so there's little more I can do, unless I can follow direct instructions (take my hand and lead me), or someone doing the first one for me with hints & tips type of text alongside... :-/
Thank you all.
PS. Don't the images look very interesting from a graphical point of view? While not an artist, I find so...
