I have found that scanning the photo "on the bias" and then straightening it in Photoshop can help with the halftone problem.......I read this somewhere among some other scanning tips on another site.

To Catia's point, I'm also a Neat Image freak. Personally, I didn't like the one time thru Neat Image so as a secondary step I went into the Noise Filter Settings added sharpening to the channels and here's what I got. I think the more you play with Neat Image settings the more powerful a tool it will become.

Cheers

Red face Old Photo

Well I briefly tried, but other than some blurring and levels I wasn't very successful. I did enclose the file I worked on for a few minutes. There did not seem to be much difference between the RGB channels. I did levels and some minimal tonal adjustments. I also upscaled the photo blurred it and than resized it downword. Oh well.

Old newspaper halftone photos

Thanks one and all for the help on this project. I will look for the NeatImage demo this weekend and try working on the photo. I'll post my final work after that.

There are always soooo many nice and helpful folks here at RP. Thank you all again!!!

I am having trouble downloading NeatImage Demo. After downloading it and opening the setup, I get an error message that the file is the wrong number of expected bytes.

Does anyone know of an alternate download site for this demo?

You could try this

Duplicate layer - apply motion blur of 1 at 45 degrees.
Duplicate background again and move to top - apply motion blur of 2 at -45 degrees. set this layer to 50% opacity.
Combine these 2 layers into new layer.
Apply gaussian blur of 1 (or to your own taste).
Apply edge sharpen.
