Unhappy Badly scanned photos

Dear Leah,

many thanks for all your help. I think given that I have 22 images in the same state I will have to contact the museum and hope that they can rescan the images - this time the right way.

Again, many thanks,

Lena

Hi everybody,

.....sorry .... no miracles!!!!

Funnily enough, when first opening the originals in PS, checking the size, I notice that they came at 300ppi....

I have to admit that for what dpi and ppi are concerned, my understanding is kind of 'blurry' .... (I'm being very kind on myself!!! ) ... but I was convinced that at that resolution the pictures should have been 'crispy clear' .... Obviously I was wrong... or, looking at the size Lena mentioned "11.82kb & 13.22kb" , they might have been correctly scanned, but 'monstrously' compressed when saved!!

Lena,

I agree with Leah and Ed about trying to get them to rescan the pictures for you, asking that they be saved ".... either as a TIF or as a maximum-quality, minimum-compression JPEG. " as Leah pointed out.

I had a go at your picture .... and honestly, I'm not sure the result is worth the effort .... particularly thinking about 22 pictures in the same conditions...
... but just in case there should be problems with the rescanning ....

Badly Scanned Images

Dear Flora,

you did an amazing job - thanks. I think given that I have so many images to deal with I will contact the museum to get them rescanned as per suggestions.

Again, thanks for your efforts.
