You mean there's more than one way to do it in Photoshop? The results look the same to me!

If there was only one way to do it on PS, I think it would be a first timer!

Actually I'd see them as complements and not alternatives. The FFT takes out the worst part, but not all. Then Flora's method does the cleaning-up.

I think I'll write the tutorial tonight - I just can't stand seeing a beautiful woman cry.

FrannyMae: May I use this photo in the tutorial?

This is a great of exhange of wonderful information! I haven't gotten a chance to work on this picture today, but I did use the FFT method with good results! Thanks, Ro!

And yes, you are free to use this picture. I kind of like the idea of being preserved at a very young age for all eternity! LOL!

Flora, your descriptions are always extremely helpful, as are your visual aids. I don't mind at all that you worked on the picture to demonstrate your technique. I just didn't want anyone to think I was looking for a "freebie!"

Hey there.

Searching through the net, i only came up with this forum giving any useful tips. I must be doing something wrong. I have this photo and I can't seem to be able to remove the honeycomb without losing too much detail. I've been trying to use byRo's method but to no avail. Could someone explain why byRo's method failed with this one ?

Thanks in advance,

mosquito

Try This Tutorial

You might want to have a look at Flora's wonderful tutorial on this very subject:

Removing PhotopaperTexture from Old Photographs

I tried it on a picture of my mom (the very one Flora used in the tutorial!) with great results, and no FFT/IFFT required.

Good luck!

Franny

Hi Mosquito. Welcome Aboard!!

I noticed your image is in Greyscale. Convert it to RGB and try again.

Cheers
Dave

Read your tutorial, and even used it a few times only to realize just now that I was using the HSB filters while using your RGB process Anyway, I have the RGB filters now. A few questions:

1. Using the clone tool, how much of the stars should I eliminate- the central core only?

2. What about the halo that I get around some of the stars?

3. What about the flares/rays that are quite prominent on some of my stars?

4. What blending mode for the clone brush?

Thank you for your help!

jhumur, welcome to RetouchPRO

1) Over on the tutorial discussion thread you'll find a "star" brush that I use for painting out the flares as well as the centre;

2) In general, if you are far away from the central star you can paint out a lot. As you get closer to the centre take much more care to paint only the star;

3) Paint them out, see 1) above;

4) I always used the "darken" mode when cloning, but nowadays I just paint the stars out with black.
