    This isnt a standard digital photo Q but I figured the folks here might have an idea of how to solve this Q.

    I emailed someone a scanned form, text on white paper.
    They have filled it in, scanned it, and sent it back to me.
    I wish to print it off.
    For some reason, although the original form was white , the returned background of the form is pink.

    I'd like to remove the pink background before printing. If I print in black and white, its too 'harsh' and you miss some of the text & writing, print in grayscale and the pink comes out as light gray.

    Ideally I'd just like to change any shade of pink to white.
    I dont have photoshop.
    i do have iPhoto, paintbrush.

    Any ideas?

    Is it a jpeg or some other image file?

    Do you have Photoshop?

    If yes to both just replace the color in PS with white
