Thanks for the welcome

I played around with the levels, but this looked best to me. Anyway I'll try around some more and will try to work on the eye.

I guess layer-shifting isn't the right word, but that was my best translation for it
I duplicated the layer, set transparency of the top-layer to 50% and shifted it (2 up and 1 left I think it was). This also works nicely on high-res scans, where you can almost see the printed dots

Actually this was my first real retouching work if we're talking about restoring old photos, tho I'm doing graphics a pretty long time and made a lot forum signatures in the past years (I was playing MMOs a lot). I guess that helped a lot

Thanks for explaining your method. I have done some tests and FFT is the winner.

The first problem with your method is that you are distorting the image slightly (1 or 2 pixels)

Second you have to do further blurring to remove the remaining texture.

I am attaching two samples. The first is layer-stretched and levels. The second is FFT and levels.
