QL World magazine scans

Postby dilwyn » Wed Feb 13, 2019 2:12 pm

Thanks to the hard work of Klaus Frank in Denmark, I've been able to add further scanned copies of QL World magazine to the Magazines Page on the QL Home Page.

This means we now have a pretty complete collection of the PDFs up to the end of 1991.

Thanks to Klaus for his great efforts. The scan quality is very good.

By the way, may I suggest to everyone a tip for best scanning results? To get rid of shadow/ghost text effect, always put a black cardboard behind the page you're about to scan.

Hi,

Klaus Frank, should be commended for the hard work in scanning the magazines.

The best way to remove ghost image of the other side of the scanned page, is to adjust the scanner Gammer and Brightness / Contrast settings.

I used to manage an Archive Department, where I intoroduced scanning of varying types of documentation.

The QL World PDF scans, can modified to remove the ghost images, a good graphics programme will allow the import of the PDF file and allow editing of each page to remove any imprefections.

I could do this if required.


Regards,

Derek

Yes, also this is surely a good way to fix the problem. Personally, I prefer to avoid the issue at root with a simple, "banal" black cardboard (but it's only a preference of mine).

In my very humble opinion, it's not strictly required, since Klaus' scans look very good. But if you have some spare time, I'm sure your efforts will be surely appreciated.
