Hello everyone.
I have a terrible problem. I am on a business trip abroad, and i took my portable scanner with me. I have an assignment for my Master's due tomorrow, and the professor wants it scanned. I finished it and proceeded to scan it, but figured out that the glass of my scanner had broken during the travel. The scanned photo (enchanced) looks like this


is there a way to completely remove those lines? Or is it maybe good if i remove the scanners glass and scan without it? I don't have access to another scanner currently and the assignment is due tomorrow morning...

5 minutes in Paintshop Pro, wit the Clone tool.


If I were turning this in, I'd take more time and get all of the offending lines.


I tried the Scratch Remover, but it messed up too much of the text.
