You can't easily fix bleed-through...
I am getting rid of all the backlogged stuff I got off share. So can't really rescan them since I don't have a physical copy.
I better get it before it disappears then ^^.

True, i just noticed the bleed through. Lots of work to fix it though >.<
Has anyone ever successfully tackled bleed-through without having to rescan?

I wouldn't try it. And I don't know any one who has >.<

I did try with a code geass scan a while ago. Results were not good.
Oh radioactive. What techniques did you use?

for me this is what I've would done. Smudge tool. (at first)

I think if you duplicate the layer a few times like b/t 2-3 times, the transparency should level out and create a good 100% opaque background, then you can smudge it then without too much worries.

- Now i'm tempted to try it now >.< (there goes a few days work with my slow pace)
The smudge tool is the worse 'fix' you can use. It should only be used for minor touch ups.

Use the clone tool.

I can point you toward the scan I tried to fix?
Would it be easier to fix with a scan of the underlying page for reference?

At the end of the day you could waste loads of time trying to fix bleed-through. The quickest fix is to re-scan (Which isn't an option here)

I'll see if I can find any online guides.
Best way is to play around with color levels, if your lucky you can get the bleeding gone without removing to much of the shadow.
