        Subject: How to improve the quality of photos scanned from old books?


I am wondering whether I can improve the quality of photos scanned from old
books. The photos are printed in a poor quality paper, black and white,
please see an example attached. I have many of them and I need them in
order to display on a digital database of my client. Do you know how can I
achieve it?

I need some tool that will do it automatically, as there are many photos.
Do it by hand with Photoshop one by one is neither cheap nor needed. Even
slight improving will help.

Thanks a lot!
