The thread ran in and out from message 775 into the early 800s with a
follow up or two.
I believe what you are inquiring about was Mark Attwood's recipe for
reworking color scans into line work. It works quite well in that
regard but I have not had similar results with grayscales of line
art. I've found the "unsharp" feature he discussed seems to
"splinter" the line work if there is not enough tonal gradation to
begin with. I've found a reverse procedure, slight application of
blurring filters, works better in that regard.
