I have and use Turbo Scan on my iPhone. It does what it does beautifully--snaps a picture of a page, straightens it, compensates for perspective, and best (for me), takes the yellow age coloring away, leaving me with a pure black and white image. (I'm mostly scanning old sheet music).
Are there any Macintosh apps that would do the same corrections from a digital snapshot? Reason: I have a lot of pre-existing images--high res, but they look like photographs of a page, not that easy-reading, clean black and white.
Any suggestions? Thanks!

I need help finding sheet music to practice! My teacher gives me some things, but I must be picky, because I keep turning my nose up at some classics like The Entertainer, Fur Elise.... They are beautiful songs of course, but I am tired of hearing them!
I am open to many styles, but am having a hard time finding stuff that motivates me! [more inside]

I just got back from watching Disney's new musical "Frozen" and I want to buy the sheet music for "Let It Go", the great song by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. I did the google, but I'm not sure if the sites that come up are legit. Before I enter my credit-card numbers, is there a definitive legit site where I can do this?

I saw Lyle Lovett last night (he puts on a great show!) and would like to learn to play one of the songs in his set. The song is Understand You, and I need piano sheet music, with lyrics. The closest my googling gets me is guitar chords
, but I don't know what to do with them. The original songwriter appears to be Eric Taylor.

Is there sheet music available for the newer production of Chess as performed two years ago at the Royal Albert Hall with Josh Groban and Idina Menzel (http://www.chessinconcert.com
)? Specifically I am looking for the arrangement of "Quartet (A Model of Decorum and Tranquility)" (youtube video here
). All the versions of sheet music that I have been able to find are from the original concept album, which is substantially different. Not only lyrical differences, but the ending is completely different with a modulation and extended fugue with all four vocal parts. If nothing else, can anyone recommend a UK source for sheet music that might have something?

Please help me find some sheet music. The piano is finally out of storage, tuned, ready to play and I cannot find my favorite sheet music. ARGH. The Gayaneh Ballet Suite; by Aram Khatchurian (I've tried various spellings of the last name and of the ballet name), arranged for solo piano. A friend gave me a Russian language edition in high school. it's missing and I cannot find a publisher. There's a shop in town that can order it, if I can find a publisher. [more inside]

I've downloaded the Sibelius Scorch sheet music plugin for both Firefox and IE. When I purchase Scorch sheet music, Scorch only plays the first page, even though I've purchased the entire song. The back/forward page buttons are grayed out. I've downloaded several songs from different Web sites, and I always get the same result. This happens with both browsers. Any ideas?

As I begin to learn the piano again, there are some songs I'd love to try to play but for which I cannot find sheet music (I definitely want to learn to play by ear at some point, but I don't think that point would best be now). I can however obtain guitar tabs for the songs, and so I'm hoping to try to translate those into rough sheet music for the piano. Can I just translate it note by note (and chord by chord), or are there some specifics about guitar tabs I should be aware about and take into account (it seems that way, a quick direct translation didn't seem to turn out quite right)?
