Removing Texture

There seems to be lots of cracks or texture in this pic. I tried using Neat Image and it didn't make a difference. Is there a way to work on this?

Re: Removing Texture

Hi femmgrangwav,

I tried Polaroid Dust and Scratch Removal on your picture (a free plugin).
It did a nice job of removing the white dots.
It's not the total answer for this restoration, but it will give you a good start.

Re: Removing Texture

You need to rescan the image and use the descreen function of your scanning software as a start. Scan at about 300 DPI. Scan a couple times moving the photo to different angles with each scan and see which one gives you the best results.

Re: Removing Texture

I wanted to give this one a try. Straightened the picture, duplicated layer and set to multiply. Then used the history brush--lighten and darken--to take out the texture. I also decided to add just a hint of a smile; however, if this picture is of a historical nature then that would be inappropriate. Added a quickie frame. An improvement, but as it has been previously advised, a good scan is the best place to start.

Re: Removing Texture

Ran it through the de-crack action by Tim J Edwards (used to be a copy on this site, haven't looked to see if it's still available), then used History Brush to bring back some of the lost detail.

Haven't tried to correct anything other than the cracks, picture still needs work, but perhaps gives you something to work from.

Edit: Link for de-crack Action http://www.retouchpro.com/tutorials/...ack-action.zip

Re: Removing Texture

gave this a try
duplicated the layer
gave it a 0.9 gaussian blur
duplicated layer again blending mode to multiply
merged layers
selected highlights copied to new layer blending mode to multiply
small amount of noise reduction.
came up with this

Re: Removing Texture

Gave it a run..
Duplicated the image.
then ran a dust and scratch filter (Filter/noise/D&S)
Then added a mask reveal all (painted black)
then with a 60% white opacity brush painted the D/S layer back in except the eyes.
