Check you coffee again.... you're missing what OlBaldy is trying to say. What we mean is this image was not scanned, it was photographed in lieu of scanning. The EXIF data does not mean the ladies picture was just taken on 11/08.

Re: Pitting and discoloration on flesh tones

I guess I am missing somehere. These image was scanned, I did it myself. TommyO, as far as the color is concerned, it could have been blue, but my best guess now is that it is green. The person who gave me the image claims it was green.

Funny, the way I learned, an inverted high-pass filter is pretty much the same thing as blurring.

However, TommyO is right that the only way here is to blur. Ordinary noise elimination stuff just won't fix this without destroying too much useful information.

A masked blur will get you some of the way, but what you need here is a bit of smudge painting. The idea is the same - to blur - but you get complete control over what gets blurred where.

Did some Selective Colour" correction, but I didn't want to tackle the dress at this time of night.
