I have some fax's done on thermal paper that fades w/ time and some of them faded during a time I didn't have a working scanner and/or computer. I'm trying to scan in some I can still barely read at this point. I haven't been able to find anything in the scanner's software program [capture perfect 3.0 for a canon dr1210C] or at dtp sites [a lot of their articles are beyond my experience/understanding] about improving contrast in printed docs.

Does anyone have any suggestions where I can find some info or settings I can try? I trialed/errored w/ gamma settings and got nowhere.
