Re: Little Old me

Your original picture was printed on textured paper and that texture had to be removed. No problem of putting it back in if you like the look. I am not a retoucher so there are numerous quality issues that are present in this restoration, but this will give you a general idea of what a restoration might look like.

The single picture has been retexturized should you be curious as to how it would look.

Re: Little Old me

hi salim and welcome to RP.

i'd be interested in knowing what dcobb used too.

there is a filter/plugin called FFT, which stands for Fast Fourier Transform, which can do a very good job of removing textures. there is also a program called image analyzer which has an FFT function built into it. there is also a variant of FFT called RGB FFT which is easier to use than the original FFT. i havent tried any of these on the posted image, but it's where i'd start if i were going to.

Re: Little Old me

Just noticed the post. I did use the plugin called FFT, which stands for Fast Fourier Transform on the picture. I also have the Image Analyzer, but did not use it in this instance. I use CS2 and CS3 Beta and use a Wacom graphics tablet. I really appreciate this site as I am trying to improve my skills; however, I do this only as a hobby.

Re: Little Old me
