Great work Mike!
A tip. If you copy records - use "photoshop".
Go to" Enhance" -"Convert to black and white". Then "Enhance" - "auto smart fix", then " Enhance"- " auto sharpen".
It doesn't always work but can help. ( You can always use the "back" button if it doe s not help ) See attached example,

Cheers Paul.

P.S You can also use the "lighting/contrast" controls to increase contrast on faded newsprint too.
Also "convert to black and white " reduces the file size of the image you want to upload! Not need for it to be in sepia/yellow ,
Black and white - as long is legible, is OK eh?
