Re: Fixing a strange texture on this old photo

Okay then, here’s my offering on the original picture in this thread. I use Photoshop Elements 4.
1. Remove noise with the Remove Noise filter. Use the Dust And Scratches filter at a setting of 2. I’ve added Neat Image to my armory, and I now used that the default setting. I now cloned out a small amount of damage still visible on the background.
2.The colours looked a bit odd, so I now checked the Levels box and adjusted the RGB channels individually. This looked more natural, but I decided to add a small adjustment with Easy Filter Smart Curve, ( A free download which works with Elements) I lightened the picture slightly with a slight curve. Final touch – sharpen with Unsharp Mask at settings: Amount:17, Radius:19.7, Threshhold:0. Probably took about 5 minutes.

Set tones in curves. Used the Decrack action I found on this site a few days ago: ran it 3 times at .8 / .8 / 1.2. Then local contrast USM 8/50/0. Neat Image 30% Y. USM 120/1/10.

Heres a quick attempt. I used median filter to remove the noise and did a quick fix on color adjustments.

I never sent this in. I guess I must be losing it. Is there anyway that someone else could have sent this in?

a mystery
