Whilst the results are readable their general appearance leaves something to be desired; there are large areas of light brown (is this what is called foxing?). Is there any way of "whitening" the pages. Pushing up the contrast in Map>Adjust to the maximum of 127 does whiten the pages but it also markedly decreases the quality of the individual letters to such an extent that the original is preferable.

Whilst this whitens the background, viewing the letters at increased magnification shows that the lighter bits that surround the letters are also removed which results in a much more jagged outline for the letters.
