Re: Thatching removal?

Amica made me feel obligated to put my two cents worth in...

I agree with leaving it in...

any method of alleviating the pattern will result in loss of definition in the repaired areas and show a difference where the repair was made ..

The best I came up with was using Image Analyzer (operations>filters>frequency domain filter) and it looks to be only a partial elimination and the child, and probably other areas will have to be masked from the repair.

Re: Thatching removal?

I have applied imageJ to selective areas only & blended in back "the corrected pieces".

Re: Thatching removal?

I'd agree to leave the weave alone. But if you wanted to soften it, my first impulse was 30% gaussian w/ history brush. There's nothing here for the FFT routine.

I'm not sure if I agree with you, I used an FFT process in ImageJ.

Re: Thatching removal?

It is definitely part of the texture and weave of the blanket. To take out the "thatching" would be to destroy the integrity of the piece.

This from a "fiber" person,

You selected those patterned areas and got a useable reading? Well, I'd never have tried that. Cool.

Re: Thatching removal?

when i first looked at this, i thought it was just some sort of damage, but when i looked at it closer, i had to agree with the others that said this is part of the fabric.

bearing that in mind, i'm going to remind folks that we, as restorers and retouchers, are liars yup, we lie, digitally... big time! and the reason i say that here is that i'm going to recommend you lie even more. yup, flat out lie to the customer! take that fabric texture and clone over that blown out white area and make it look at thatched fabric, also. sell it! hehe, ok, you dont actually have to hide anything from the customer. the point here is if you truly believe it's a fabric texture, then that's how you restore it or rebuild it or both. just try to be right when you can

but, more than the texture in the blanket, i'm a little more concerned with the noise in that arm. a good noise remover shld do the job pretty well. i used psp's noise removal at a pretty high strength and it worked well.

also, one last note on the blanket. i really do believe that 'thatch' is part of the fabric and not only that, but if you do your contrasting right, you can also see the raised portions of this fabric/blanket. this is actually what finally convinced me it was part of the blanket.
