But if you reduce the pixels then it reduces the print size as well and it'll be like 1/2 inch in size.

Are you using photoshop? If you are, after you have reduced the photo and it looks ok, save it. Then do a print with preview. you should be able to adjust it up or down in size to suit.

Using Photoshop CS. If I look at your last photo it appears you've enlarged the photo..

Oh.. I just saw you're going into print with preview.. I thought you were using the image size.

See whenver I used the curve tool.. I've always done it from RGB.. never CMYK. I also never noticed until now the three points on the tool. I've only used to notice the middle one and drag it to the top left or bottom right and see the results.

I just noticed there's three dots. I just get mad at the thing when I push and pull and can't get a good color out of it or when I push and pull it and I must have offset the other and it comes out close to the original again.

Wow.. this tutorial is great also:

http://retouchpro.com/tutorials/?m=show&id=128

Not just for coloring stuff, but instead of using the lasso tool to select a section.. I'm now going to use this method to easier select an area! With the lasso tool I often sometimes get a good area going then mess up with a jagged mouse movement. With the other tool that you can put points down with the lasso tool I find it takes too long.

Hi,

I'm in a big hurry right now ... I'll work more on this picture later today ... just wanted to show you what can be achieved with the FFT filter in cases like this ..... In this Thread you can see another sample of FFT on newspaper scans ...

Attachment 1 = Original scan (I used the big size)
Attachment 2 = FFT only
Attachment 3 = FFT+Neat Image.

FFT is the way to go. I'll scour the web to find an FFT plugin for OS X even if I die in the attempt

FFT - It works!

I gave it another go - and indeed it works like magic (Don't know what I was doing wrong last time as I had no 'stars' - maybe the wrong kind of noise in the picture I was working on that the time?)

Can anyone give me a pointer to something that explains what these filters/technique actually do?? I'm the kind of person that like to understand what the tool is doing, not just the result, so I can judge better what it is likely to work for etc. At the moment it seems to be in the relms of black magic! *lol*

Halftone excitement

After downloading your picture I ran a median filter in photoshop. I copied that layer and ran neat image on the copied layer and then blended it.
