o3h1p wrote:@dpc Yes I did the black paper test (with a single page on a flatbed) and it does help equalize the bleed-through so that it's easier to remove post processing. The problem with this is that it would be a lot of work to move two sheets of paper around for each page. I'm still hoping that with the right settings/lighting I can get better output. But it might just be the case that any sufficient bright light will make it bleed through.

dpc wrote:One idea that I've been toying with is to do a post-process operation with the a scanned page, and the image from its back side. You'd perform a blend operation between the two pages that would subtract a percentage of what is on the back side image from what is on the front. Proper registration of the two images is a bear (they come from different cameras), but the early results show some promise.

Aside from registration problems, you're going to have to consider the front image as well - the back-page image will not show through dark areas of the front image, so simply subtracting a percentage will not work. The back-page image is not showing because the ink bled through the page, but because the light shone through the page and bounced back. Letting it bounce off a uniform black surface should eliminate virtually all of the back-page ghosting.
