Help, please with removing "dots"

Client brought this in...poor quality reproduction of original (which is gone). I've done my best, but can't remove the dotted pattern. Suggestions are most welcome!

Re: Help, please with removing "dots"

try the FFT filter (fast fourier transform). there is a plug-in by that name and there is a filter in Image Analyzer that will do it, too. in fact, get both the FFT and FFT RPG filters. just do a search in this forum for the links or try in the links library here on this site.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! This plug-in is magic...well, maybe not quite, but it is AMAZING what it can do to remove the pattern! I had no trouble installing it into the CS4 plug-ins folder and following the tutorial. I'm sure this will be most helpful in other restorations. Again, I really appreciate your taking the time to point me in the right direction!
