Noise Problem

Hello all,
I have been playing around with this photo of my Grandmother. The attached fil is exactly how the photo looks I have not enhanced it in any way Everything I try produces a very noisy photo, I have tried aggresively removing all the noise from all channels and just the blue channel, noise ninja didn't help much OnOne intellihance failed me (or rather I am not using the right settings in either plugin) could someone please explain the best way to go about fixing this kind of problem? (I have a lot of similar photos in an old tin found in the loft that have the same problem) I know the experts on this site can point me in the right direction you have never failed me yet!
Thanks


P.S for added fun does anyone know how to enlarge an image of this type to print to A3 mainly what resolution would I need to scan the photo in at?

Re: Noise Problem

I'm not a pro or anything but here's my stab at it!

Workflow:

Adjust Levels to get tones right
Remove spots and damage with patch tool
Desaturate the picture
Select background, make new layer and lens blur it
run imagenomics noiseware pro @ stronger luma settings on background layer

Re: Noise Problem

Spot Healing, Patch and Turning this photo in Photoshop CS3 via b/w command will produce a very high end result.

Re: Noise Problem

Hi

I've had a go, tough one mucked about with levels, shadow/highlights and blend mode to multiply. haven't had time to restore, i have the original size if you want. i don't think it's so much noise, the pixels are blown out in some areas, hence the extreme lightness.

regards


helen
