Removing dust from digital scans
I'm making scans of public domain musical scores for imslp.org. I scan the scores as TIFFs, then do some cropping and resizing in gimp before I convert them to PDFs.

Some of the scores are old and dirty, and there is a lot of noise coming through on the scans. I've found tutorials for removing dust from photos, but I don't think those procedures will work for removing dust from black and white scans. I'm looking for a filter that will do automatic cleanup on a whole file all at once. Does gimp have anything like this?
