Try www.photofiltre.com .  The product, Photofiltre, is free to the home 
user without the usual limitations.  It's almost as good as Photoshop 
and somewhat easier to use.

My son has experience in this area and when I asked him a similar 
question about cleaning up an HT-44 schematic, he suggested fooling 
around with the contrast and brightness to get rid of the smudges. 
Getting rid of the crease lines requires more eye-hand coordination than 
I've got.

Good luck,
