You just need a scanning target then it is super easy. For the longest time I used a Mini Color Checker from Gretag but I now use a self made one. Here are both in this image when I was testing out the self made one. Once you have the scan done you just need a levels layer in Photoshop and a few clicks and you are done.... You can also use it for copy work.
