Hi Chris

Those lines just look like noise due to bounce back of light
I have just had a good look at the second image that was posted. (Post 8) It is much sharper. It appears that the restorer did not have the problem with the lines/pattern

Have you seen this before Chris? I have not seen lines like this even when scanning objects which are a long way from the scanner.

Re: Looking for Photo Restoration

My old HP scanner used to do it. If I scanned an image in that was in a card frame, the frame was crystal clear and the photo had bad noise or lines (just like this one). Where the photo dropped down to touch the glass (in the middle of photo), the noise/lines would vanish. I can't say exactly what it was that caused it, but assumed it was to do with the image reflection on the glass, or distortion caused by the distance from the glass. It sometimes fixed it if I only scanned a selection within the frame, but it was always noisy. The other thing could be any "Auto settings" (auto contrast etc) in scanner software, that is changing the image as it is scanned. They could be over compensating, and causing this noise in the image.
You can also get these lines if your scanner PSU is on it's way out, but they normally show on the whole image (and frame). That one is caused by lack of smooth power to the scanner, causing a juddering of motor as it moves the scanning head down the image.

Hi Chris.

Thanks for the Info

It appears that the restorer had a much better image to work with than the one posted here.

Thanks Again.

Ken.

Re: Looking for Photo Restoration

definitely a tricky image. i got rid of the scan lines with psp's digital camera noise removal. but that caused a reduction in sharpness which had to be put back with a usm layer. but, i agree, a better scan would give better results.

Re: Looking for Photo Restoration

Thanks for all of your help, I have found a senior member (Ziaphra) who lives very close to me and has agreed to work on this for me from the original

Your efforts have all been appreciated, and maybe the final image can be posted here for you all to see.

Vince
