Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Not sure if this is helpful, or just added to the problem, but I added MORE NOISE!! Equalized..Fade50%..Brightness/Contrast..Warming Filter..Surface Blur..Filter Add Noise..Filter Crosshatch. Dodge/Burn.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Hi Budkin.
Welcome to Retouch Pro

Here is another method

Layer Shifting

Create four copies on layers above the original and set them all to darken mode
Shift one layer one pixel up
Shift one layer one pixel down
Shift one layer one pixel left
Shift one layer one pixel right

It’s still not perfect but it’s a good start and will reduce the amount of noise reduction required.

Hope this helps.

Ken.

Photoshop->Presets->Photoshop Actions. Open Photoshop's Actions palette and from its flyout menu -> Load Actions.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Used Camerakens method which, to me, was really unique and worked nicely. I then adjusted each level. Used color balance followed by smudge and blur. Finally finished with Hi pass filter.

I (allbatrosss) never sent this in. How did it get their? A mystery. Am i losing it?

And another way. Copying the layer and using dark blending mode

Well I copied the layer and set the copied layer to darken. Next I selected the move tool and moved the top layer a few clicks up and to the right with the arrow key.

Sometimes this method works great.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Thanks so much everyone! I'm really blown away with how many methods there are, and especially with the end results. I've got a lot to learn but all of this feedback will most surely get me started on the right foot!
