When scanning art into Photoshop, is there a way to remove light blue lines?

I have an image drawn with a non-repo blue pencil, then I went over this with black ink. Once scanned, and opened with Photoshop, what's the easiest/best way to get rid of the blue lines?

    When trying to remove blue lines from a picture, your best option is to work with the channels tab in Photoshop. I've made a mini tutorial for you with a couple of pictures so don't forget to click the links next to the steps.

    1) Get your picture out with the blue lines in it. ( )

    2) Open the Channels Palette (if it's not visible go to Window >> Channels) and make it so that only the blue channel is visible by clicking the eye symbols to off next to the red and green channels. ( )

    3) Your image should not have any blue lines. ( ) At this point you need to select the whole image, copy it, and paste it into a new document of the same size. Make sure after you have pasted the image that you go to Image >> Mode >> RGB Color because when you paste an image after messing with the channels it goes to greyscale format. This will change it back so that you can work with color.

    I hope that helps. :)

    No questions asked, the best site for Photoshop tutorials is:

    All tutorials are in video format, which makes them easier for you to follow along with the instructor. The videos are interactive and very easy to follow, this will help you learn piano three times faster. Good Luck!
