Cleaning a scan basically means making the scans look good.

There are many steps in the process of cleaning a scan:
1. Colour-settings: Make sure the scan is in greyscale mode or, for colour images, RGB mode.  [+] [-]

The headline describes it perfectly. If the scan is monochrome (black and white/shades of grey), open on the "image"- dialogue, choose the "mode"-subdialogue

and click on the option "greyscale".

2. Rotating: Rotate the scan to have it aligned correctly.  [+] [-]
3. Merging: Connecting two pages that are part of a double page spread.  [+] [-]
4. Cropping: Crop out unneccessary parts of the scan.  [+] [-]
5. Leveling and dusting: Level the image so the blacks are black and the whites are white without damaging the greys then clean any specks that were left.  [+] [-]
6. Redrawing: Complete any necessary redrawing, e.g. restoring the background behind offtexts.  [+] [-]
7. Resizing: Resize your image to have a web-compatible size (depending on your group this may not be wanted)  [+] [-]
8. Cleaning bubbles: Clear the text from the bubbles.  [+] [-] [Action]
9. Saving: Save the image.  [+] [-]
