    Well, what scanner do you have?
    What scan software will you be using?

    I typically set it for around 1200-1800dpi, then unsharp mask set to medium. Thats it, unless the image is so faint its hard for the scanner to pickup. Then I will manually select the image area, and adjust the color until I can at least get a usable image.
