Brighten and unify the background of a scanned image

Brighten and unify the background of a scanned image

My girlfriend has scanned a few comics images, drawn with pencil. She wants to publish them on the web, but the different grayscale shadows of the paper are still evident in the image.

"Using ImageMagick you can achieve it like this:

convert source.jpeg -white-threshold 75% target.jpeg

All pixels in the source image with a brightness level of 75% or higher will be set to white in the target image. Just play with the threshold value until you get something that works well. It could be a problem if parts of the drawing comes out brighter than the paper in your scans, but that shouldn't normally be the case."
