Hi Diane

When you go to the website I provided, at the end of the first paragraph it says "download it "here". Click on "here" and it will take you to another window. Click on "Open". This will automatically cause PS to open (at least it does with my XP system). Assumuing that this happens for you, the Action should be located at the very bottom of your Actions Palette under heading "ISO". There's different levels up to Super Aggressive that you can try. Let me know how it goes.

Cheers
Duv

Re: noise reduction tools

Duv,

Wow, I'm really glad you gave a shout and got me to look again at that website. It has some really great info identifying and comparing many of the various noise reduction tools that I didn't scroll down and see earlier!!!

Thank you very much!
Diane

Hi Diane, Duv,

Thank you very much for your kind words!

Diane,

Much, much better ..... you are really on the right track!

Dust&Scratches is what I used to remove most of the noise in your picture.
  • I tend to start with the lowest Radius value and gradually increase until all, or most of the noise has disappeared.
  • I, then, gradually increase the Treshold to bring some details back.
  • If necessary, I add a little noise.
  • I add a Layer Mask (hide all) to the D&S Layer and, with a soft white brush (adjusting its Opacity), I paint over the black Mask to reveal the corrected parts.
  • If possible, I tend to avoid the eyes/nose/mouth parts as not to lose their sharpness.

... I'm sure that auto contrast works very well, but I rather use Levels or Curves as they give me more control on what I'm doing....

  • D&S for noise removal.
  • Curves or Levels or .... two Shadow Masks (Blending=Screen and Soft Light) to lift the shadows.
  • Selective Colors to adjust the colours.
  • All the layers necessary to finish the restoration .... (Lighten, Darken, Color .... you name it...)
  • Sharpening as last step.

Duv,

Thank you for the Link! .... I've downloaded the action ... I'll let you know after I've tried it....

Flora,

Thank you, thank you, thank you once again!! I feel very blessed having you around and for being so very helpful!

Just wondering about what you wrote:

* All the layers necessary to finish the restoration .... (Lighten, Darken, Color .... you name it...)

and how do you add noise??

Duv,

Thank you very very much for the second website above! It looks extremely helpful. I was able to see the first website; I just couldn't download the "action." What is an action anyway?

Best regards,
Diane

What I meant by that is creating several empty layers along the way, changing their blending to "(Lighten, Darken, Color .... you name it...)" depending on the kind of correction I think I have to do.... Since this is my standard procedure for working on a picture, I summarized it that way for fear of becoming ripetitive .....

Filter > Noise > Add Noise.
Used like this, it adds noise to the whole picture ....
If you want to do it on parts of the image only, you have to select them first ...
You can also add noise to whatever correction Layer you worked on by Ctrl+Click on it to select it, and then follow the 'Add Noise' procedure
