Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

i had a go at this also.

polaroid dust and scratch remover seems to work best. i ran it as a plugin, so i had to reduce the image size so that no side was greater than 800 pixels, but you could run it in stand-alone mode and it shld work fine without reducing.

i ran a color balance adjustment layer and brightness/contrast adjustment layer.

ran psp's digital camera noise removal.

some cloning and airbrushing.

p.s. he reminds me of peter sellers.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Hi There... lots of good advice i see

I used the medium filter... took a snapshot... backed up in the history pallet just before the medium filter. Then used the history brush set to darken to remove most of the damage.

I also ran it thru Image analyzer to the small texture.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Gave it a run..
Ran a level on each channel bring out the colors and kill the red caste.
Duplicated the layer...then applied the Dust + Scratches filter.
Used 4 Radius / 11 Thresholds.
Then ran a slight Curve to brighten it.
(I like the way it kept the real film look) It would probably be cleaner had I finished on a noise removing software but I like it as is.

Lasa

The link doesn't go to a page, it is the actual ZIP file. Click the link below and the deCrack.zip file should download to your desktop.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Swampy, I must be dense or something but even the ZIP-link is taking me another page. (see attached page)
maybe I have some anti-zip-somthing on my PC interfering..?

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Lasa, I sent you a PM with a link to download it from my public folder on .mac. I have no idea why you can't get to it, but you should be able to get it from my site.

Sorry... the link to my URL is in the second PM... I'm a real ditz today! :-)
