thanks for all your help
You don't have to use Neat Image. Noise Ninja, Grain Surgery and others will work with Mac I'm sure. Gauss Blur, noise,etc, certainly are in Mac PS.

Image J is part of The Image Processing Toolkit
Available Here for Free
ImageJ runs on Linux, Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows
The Docs are here
And the bit about FFT is here

It is Not a plugin but a complete program. You will need Java Installed.


Hi Ken,

I've downloaded the imageJ - how did you get that superb result? it's exactly the look i'm trying to achieve. Did you use imageJ for this, and if so what sequenc of commands did you use...?

thanks for all your help..

Hi Sev

Yes. I did use ImageJ to do this (Although I prefer to use FFT-RGB because in Windows/Photoshop it is a plug-in which is quicker to use.

Load the picture into ImageJ
You will see the FFT as in my attachment1
Doubleclick the Paintbrush tool and choose a brush width of 20

Paint out the 4 stars in black as in attachment2
Process>FFT>Inverse FFT
And Save the results.

You should now have the image virtually texture free as in Attachment3

You will notice that ImageJ keeps the colour (unlike FFTrgb) so you don’t need to put the colour back in.

I have dumped my original picture. But from there I went on to clean up the picture.
I think I desaturated it and re-toned it to even out the colour.
Lightened the eyes and added a hint of colour. I will probably have used neat Image as well.

Hope this helps.
