Help StepTaker please!!!!

StepTaker thank you for the information . My MSPE has a thin -clear ( no too evident) busy background but the letters are very legible (black computer ink)

So if I try to do as you said ( a photocopy) first. Is there any problem if the photocopy is in black and white ? or it must be a color copy ?

Thanks in advance!

My MSPE has a very busy background, I just scanned it, simple and it worked out great. You probably won't want to do color as the files get too big and you have a limit in ECFMG. Just scan it and see how it looks, if it's still too " busy", than copy and rescan and so on.

Default Thanks!!

dr_mhm Did you scan your document black and white or in color ?. Because my MSPE's busy is blue color.

So when you refer to just scan it and see how it looks. You say in black and white first and then scan it? or what

Thanks in advance

I scanned in black and white and it was fine (busy background was blue), background barealy showed up.
I did everythingin b/w because of the limited file size that ECFMG allows.
