Increasing print contrast (SOLVED)
« on: June 26, 2014, 08:55:31 pm »
I've been emailed some pencilled sketches that are too faint to read. What's the easiest way to increase the contrast for printing? I'm doing a CAD drawing in Draftsight and they only have to be legible, not pretty. LibreOffice I suspect could do it but I'd prefer something simpler, though I'll learn it if I must.
By the way, well done to the Peppermint crew. P5 installed easily and runs great.

If it's a common image file you can do that in Gimp using the Curves tool.

Thanks I'd forgotten GIMP. I'll give it a go and call it solved-hopefully!
