RAAF airman in khaki has red lines on photo

This photo was scanned from an original and sent to me as a digital image. It is a World War 2 Australian airman. What I need to fix is the red wavy lines on the image. Can they be fixed? Is there a name for them?

Don't know if there is a name for the red lines, but here's a try to enhance the picture.

I first used Neat Image to get rid of the noise in the picture, then added a Color Adjustment and Hugh and Saturation layer to bring out some of the color.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

When i looked again this morning was,nt happy with the green cast in parts and unfortunately i had changed his eye colour so had another mess round with it , i think this looks more true to the original.

Here's my try. Convert to lab and apply an inverted b channel to the lightness using a hard light blending mode. After that, blurred the a and b to remove remaining colour noise.

Just search the tutorials section...But I just tried James' technique it works great you should give it a try. Although you will need to adjust the contrast

I'll remember that one James... Did that come from Margulis?

Thanks! I wish I could take some credit, but I first came across this technique in Dan Margulis' book on lab colour. I've since seen it online, and http://unsharp-mask.blogspot.com/200...photoshop.html seems to do a good job demonstrating it. It's a great one to add to the arsenal.
