Scanning textured photos
I just read a tip that sounds interesting, but I'm too lazy to try it (actually, I don't have the required material)
The suggestion was to scan heavily textured photos through onionskin paper, then use curves to adjust the tonality. The claim is that the diffusion offered by the onionskin defeats the myriad reflections caused by the texturing.
Anyone game to test this? If it works, and you can provide some before/after samples I'll make a tutorial page out of it, giving you lifelong fame

Sounds like something that might work! How about tracing paper, or vellum (are they smoother than onionskin?
