How to re-create a poor-quality microfilm scan

Calling graphic artists: I have a microfilm-derived copy of a newspaper article from 1873. The copy is poor quality, to the point where it's hard to read. I don't think any sort of simple image processing is going to fix it. I'd like to re-create the article from scratch, but I have very little experience in this area. [more inside]

Issue with copying images on a Mac

Something's wrong with copy-pasting images on my Mac. When I'm editing pictures, I copy part of it, and when I paste it comes out lighter than before. Example here. The problem happens in Seashore and Paintbrush. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong? I don't even know how to google this problem. [more inside]

Gimp software bug

I'm using Gimp image editing software and loving it except whenever I type letters, numbers appear (always consecutive, no matter what the letter I'm typing). This happens when I try to type text in the image or when I try to save a file. It is only happening with Gimp. I've tried stripping the software out and reloading it, but nothing changed. I'm using Windows 7. Any suggestions?

I loaded GIMP on to my IMac but would like to put some fonts on it (like maybe some from 1001 fonts)...I am not tech-savvy (to say the least) and would appreciate how I can go about downloading such free fonts and adding them to GIMP. Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Cutting Out Objects in GIMP

I am using GIMP and having the simplest difficult just cutting out an object (such as a briefcase). I want to cut object out and then place them in a different image....I can simply drag an entire layer to a new image but really need to know how to image-edit....I don't really know how to do it. I resorted to making a layer below and trying to erase around the object and that didn't work. I know how to do it in Photoshop but no longer have access to it in my office. If it matters I am on an IMac. I am kinda embarassed that I cannot figure out such a simple yet important procedure. Any help? Thanks so much for your input and time!

Freetype for the Gimp on Windows

How do I install the Freetype plugin for the Gimp on Windows? Google turns up nothing other than instructions to compile it, but I can't believe there isn't a precompiled Windows version online. It looks like it's no longer included in the standard distribution. Alternately, is there any other way to do kerning on the Gimp on Windows?

How to set up actions in GIMP?

I'm a GIMP user, and I'm trying to figure out how to mimic the actions one can set up on Photoshop. Specifically, I'd like to set up a sequence that sets photos to a standard size (600 x ___), adds a standard black border, flattens the image, and saves the whole thing to a set folder. I'm not the most savvy GIMP user, so clear instructions on how to do this sort of thing would be greatly appreciated.

Need help installing Gimp on OSX.

Has anyone successfully installed "The Gimp" for Mac OS X? I've had no luck installing it, whether in handy .dmg form (it says that it can't open my X11.app, even though I have X11), or as compiled by "fink" (in which case it starts kvetching about xfree86 not being set up right.) What can I do to my X to make it accept and welcome The Gimp?
