Without seeing the original, I can't say.

The original may be printed at a resolution of 6000 dpi, but you are scanning at only 600 dpi. This gives antialiasing: gray pixels at the boundary of black and white.

If you want to save space, try saving the grayscale as JPEG, at different quality settings.

You can obtain a greyscale example by replacing the header of my brief example with P2 50 15 255 and changing all 1 into 255's.
I could have named my topic: Filter to improve some jpg or png images

The jag comes from the irregularity of the paper and printing process

I want a monochrome result.

The filter I need should be called -unjag or -dejag :)

The result will still be black and white only. It won't replace data that has been lost.

How did you create the black and white version? Please show the exact command. If you dithered, this might account for some of the noise.

Sure. But some complain about my using tif or pbm. :)

I am not trying to replace lost data.

Simply with a scanner at 600 dpi.
