Depends on what's wrong with it but the following are pretty much
"standard" things to do to a scan to make it look better:
1.Filter >Sharpen> Unsharp Mask. Radius=1, Threshold=3, Amount depends
on resolution of scan but probably somewhere between 80 & 300.
2.Image > Adust > Auto Levels
3. If the color is off try Image > Adjust > Variations and pick a
variation you like.
4. If it's too contrasty, dark, light, etc. try Image > Adjust >
How this helps.
