Many old manuscript documents were written on both sides of the paper, and the bleed-through from one side of the document to the other increases the difficulty in reading or deciphering the information on the page. This paper presents techniques for reducing such bleed-through distortion using techniques of digital image processing. Both sides of the document are scanned, maintaining full spatial and amplitude resolution (8 bits/sample). The bleedthrough is reduced by processing both sides of… CONTINUE READING
