Thatching removal?

Hey folks.

im working to restore a 50 year old pic, most of it has been pretty straight forward but i ran into thatching, at least that is what i decided to call it. it looks almost like staning from the texture of the frame backing.. at least thats what i think it is. it could be the texture of the quilt, but it seems too uniform.

ive messed with it a little, i used paths and gaussian blur and that does a decent job but if im not careful it also wipes out any detail on the blankets.

i was curious what techniques other people use to remove such artifacts?

here is a portion of the pic and the thatching..

No, I believe it's stand-alone
There are links in the tut where to find it.

Re: Thatching removal?

I dont think the thatching is enough on this. i ran the fillter and did not get any stars, the red channel in fact was just a big black screen. no stars on any of the channels.

maybe it is just not evident enough to show

Would suggest you wait for OlBaldy to start by. He can give you some hints in the right direction...

Re: Thatching removal?

Sure looks like a chenille bedspread to me. You say the pic is about 50 years old. Chenille bedspreads were very common in those days. They usually had a regular looped pattern or design over the entire spread. If there's similar texture in parts of the pic that aren't the bedspread then it's something else, but by the sample you've posted I'd say it's good old chenille. And if that's the case no sense in removing it since it's actually part of the original image.

Jack, that appears to be the material of the blanket. The pattern is not unidirectional - it seems to change directions / follow the buldge in the blanket. It does not appear to be on the infants skin. A FFT will definitely not work on this pattern. It might be best to leave it in.
Regards, Murray
