Re: Restoring old WW11 pictures

thanks, wintergoddess

dc, they could be. just looked like a big moire to me, but i'm not familiar with newton rings and i couldnt get ken's link to work... so, might just be my error there. however, i did notice one thing in photoshop. the moire remove tool looked like it would have handled it had i been able to get it to let me do an 'ok' on it. the 'ok' button wouldnt un-ghost. but the preview window looked like it would have handled it.

edit: lol, and wouldnt you know, now that i said i couldnt get that link to work, i got it to work. does sound like newton rings, doesnt it. sure wish they'd included a picture example on that wiki.

edit again: ok, i'm getting old and senile. they did provide example pics.

and just in case you dont like the somewhat stylized, diffuse glow look of the first one and want a more natural look, i'm including this one, no extra charge.

Re: Restoring old WW11 pictures

Thanks everyone for your great input so far . I think this will be a ongoing topic for some time with me as I have over 100 slides that need restoring to something like their original condition . so I hope to keep everyone busy with more challenges in the coming months.....I really do appreciate the effort.Around 25% can and have been rescanned less their glass mounts and the results have been dramatic ,the rest I am slowly working on a 1:1 basis , so expect more samples.Begining to work through your various software suggestions , looks as if It will be a case of mix and match , keep the ideas coming.

Cheers....barris

My wife and I need to restore some of these pictures for a possible future publication and would like some advice regarding a certain pattern effect that appears in a number of shots( please see example in attached photo)I am currently using Photoshop Elements 4.0 for editing and would appreciate any help or advice.

Would descreening work, if you have that option? I've never had the problem with transparencies, only once with negatives and that was so small an area I fixed it with the clone tool.

Everyone's fixes look great!

Craig, the arrow keys are on the right side of the keyboard next to the numeral keys.
