Out of curiosity, how was this scanned and what settings did you use? For example, scanned through glass of picture frame at 300 dpi at normal size…

So glad you asked. I believe this is part of my problems .
I just bought a Canon 8400 scanner. Ithe soft ware that came with it is not working right . It is scanning things but I do not have any choices for settings and things. I was going to call Canon today but watching my grands so can not. The software being used is Pagemanager . I do not like it at all! I bought this scanner for it ability to scan negatives and 35 mm slides. Thanks Neb

PS: I think I also might have a problem with a conflict with programs as I have a multi canon system and when scanning with the 8400 it seems to bring up the scan software for my Pixma. ???

If your operating system is WindowsXP, you might try using the camera and scanner wizard. I think it's located in the start menu under prgrams/accessories.

Hi,

Nebgranny,

I had a go at your image ....

To minimize the texture I used the FFT Filter (if you haven't done it yet, it can be downloaded free here) and here is ByRo's excellent Tutorial on how to use it ....

In Attachment 1 you can see what I did to the Red and the Green Channels in the FFT procedure.

In Attachment 2 you can see the B&A immediately after running FFT.

In Attachment 3 you can see what I managed to do to bring out a bit more details... (worked mainly on the faces) .... To do this I used the Shadow/Highlight Adjustment ... (here is the Tutorial), with the help of a Layer Mask...

I used the PS Dust&Scratches Filter + Layer Mask (see Vikki's excellent Tutorial for the 'how to'), to soften the skin.

Hope this helps .....

opps , First I am stuck on step 8 of the FFT tutorial by Ro. How do I get my colors back? I only have one layer as well, did I miss something?? What am I suppose to slide?

... I'm a bit tight with time right now .... as you have noticed, I've been 'disappearing' on and off lately ... The reason behind is that, after nearly one and a haf year our new place is practically ready for us to move in ... (the last details have kept us very, very busy lately) ... On the 12th our furniture will arrive and after that I'll 'disappear' again for a while ... But ... as Schwarzenegger always said in his films ..."I'll be back!!!!"

For your FFT problem:

*Open your working image.

*Duplicate the whole image.

*Run FFT on the duplicate which, at the end of the procedure, will have turned black and white.

*Drag the black and white FFT image on top of your 'working original'

*Set the FFT (Top) layer's Blending to 'Luminosity' and you'll have your colour back on the corrected version.

Hope this helps ...

Take care....
