Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

I have also had cracked pictures like this and and want to have a go at the decrack filter. However, I am using photoshop elements 4 and am not sure which folder to put it in, Can anybody advise (Elements 4 does not appear to have an actions palete) Will it work in elements at all?

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Sorry for the noob question: Is it okay to suggest other software than photoshop to fix the photo?

off topic questions should be asked in new threads.

But as its sort of on topic, try the GIMP.

Good luck,

igot2pman, what i mean is to fix the photo in this thread.
I was going to suggest NeatImage software (http://www.neatimage.com). I think NeatImage can fix this cracking issue without blurring the photo.

Agus, Welcome to RetouchPRO! Enjoy your time here. Poke around, ask questions, offer help, have fun!

Although, for this picture where the topic was initiated in 2006, I think it may have already been resolved by the OP. (Original Poster)

I understand, it was off topic because your post didnt have a real point. As Olbaldy said, if the problem was fixed there is not a need to bump old threads. But if you are going to do it, then say something worth while.

Now i am off topic...

But good sugestion on the neat image, thats some good software.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

I've got neat image and I used it in conjunction with Photoshop elements 4 and it did indeed sort the cracking on my photo. It turned out mostly to be caused by textured paper. I only had to use the free download once to be convince it was worth buying!

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

ok, this is getting way away from the original post/thread here. please direct questions and answers NOT related to the original post to a new thread.

debbie, please feel free to start a new thread about the decrack action. you might also check out the software forum here at RP, as there may be something there about the decrack action.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Ah, the thread that wouldn't die...

In my case, I'm glad it resurfaced as I picked up the Decrack action and a worthwhile tip from Cameracken on layer shifting. Wish I knew more so that I could contribute. Perhaps someday.

In the meantime this site is proving to be a tremendous resource.

Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

This is my shot at it in PaintShopPro XI

Two layers, the copy has a gaussian blur of 6 on it. Merge all layers, then fade correction 75%. Soft focus, and then sharpen up again with unsharp mask.
