Re: Old Newspaper Image Restore

I ran the image through my FFT filter and ran into one thing I should have done at the start. This image is in grayscale and needs to be switched to RGB in order to use the Luminosity step near the end of the procedure.

Re: Old Newspaper Image Restore

Jeff, you sure do give us challenging images! I still use the old photo of your wife to test techniques and plugins - hope you don't mind. To de-screen this one I used Imagej, a public domain program produced by a researcher at NIH and available for almost all platforms. Since I use a Mac I don't have access to the usual FTP plugin. Imagej is a powerful program in its own right. In it, I ran Process>Smooth (maybe a couple of times - can't exactly remember) to minimize the screen dots, then Process>FFT>FFT. Masked out all but the central star, then ran Process>FFT>Inverse FFT. Saved the resulting image as a jpg, then pulled it into Photoshop CS3 where I ran Noise Ninja on it and, with a curve, increased contrast a bit. Not perfect, but the newspaper dots are pretty much gone, and the original tonality is pretty much intact.

Re: Old Newspaper Image Restore

Haven't done anything for ages, and this pic seem to be good practice to bring some editing touch back.

Paint Shop Pro Photo X2:

Clarify
FFT (Image Analyzer)
Digital Camera Noise Removal
Neat Image
Hightlight/Midtone/Shadow
Add noise


Should have looked the original photo more often (lost some detail on shirts & skirt)

Re: Old Newspaper Image Restore

Took this from Katrin Eismann's book to get rid of the newspaper 'moire' pattern... just resized the photo... that's as far as I've gone... so far.

Re: Old Newspaper Image Restore

i like that, lurch. looks like FFT is the answer here. one could also try image analyzer for their built in FFT function.
