I always fail to understand this ...
With prices for hard drives like they are, and comparing to the amount
of work, it really is to scan a manual, I would recommend to scan with
the best resolution you have, and have those files as you "original scans"
Than, you apply whatever tricks you have in your bin, to "publish" those

Probably, one day there will be a nice tool, to do whatever you
expected, and you have the scan already on your drive, and the original
manual is digitized and preserved already.

Just my .001 cents ;-)

And I was talking about pictures/hafltone etc.

The recommendations for b/w & text/line drawings are clear ...
