I see you included examples.  Well, you can just remove one staff line
at the bottom and put it at the top, and then you are in treble clef.
If that's too hard, it would appear like it's written in C Minor (or
parallel), so the half-steps in staff are G-A♭ and D-E♭ which look like
B-C and F♯-G, so pretend that this is really written in E Minor in
treble clef and afterwards use Frescobaldi's transpose function to get
it from E down to C.

It's a similar operation as transcribing something from treble clef to
bass clef.
