Got to scan sold old documents for posterity. Included are a number of pictures that have been printed in books and papers. In this case the material is from roughly 1900 to 1950 with a surprising number of color pages.

I'm curious: is not moire better dealt with by scanning software? Is it effectively fixed by any kind of plug in?

I have an older Epson scanner which is normally adequate, but a newer model might be possible if it does miracles here.

Just out of curiosity, is this so obvious it isn't worth answering? Can't believe that all are befuddled here.....

If you get perfectly flat scans, and the pages are unwrinkled and not in any way warped or distorted by moisture, the best bet is always FFT filtering. There are tutorials on the net.

Be sure to turn any sharpening off on the scanner software. Try rotating the original at different angles. Scan it bigger, apply median filter then reduce the size.
