Re: How to clean scanned photo showing lines

I just downloaded the FFT filter (found it in one of the tutorials here in retouchpro) and added to my photoshop plugins. Its going to be a long day but It will be worth the hassle if you're going for the best quality. Thanks Dave.

where to find the tutorial:

and FFT filter plugin:

Re: How to clean scanned photo showing lines

hi miles and welcome to RP.

i'm probably missing something here, but, if the originals are clean, no lines and you ran them through the scanner and now you have lines, then wouldnt the easier thing be to just clean the scanner? it could be something as simple as wiping off the glass plate(s).

If you have a walmart in your area, go there and spend 40 bucks and get a new scanner. It will save you tons of time Time= money right?

It may be worth taking these down to your local printer, and getting them to scan them for you.
