textured photo

hi,

This photo is about 30 years old and has a raised beaded texture. Is there a filter or other technique that can be used to get rid of it?

thanks

Re: textured photo

Yes, FFT filter would help

Re: textured photo

Thanks, Jonas, I'll read that thread.
Chillin, I don't know what FFT means. Maybe the thread will 'splain it.

thanks!

Re: textured photo

I have photoshop cs3. I don't have a Filter-->Fourier Transform. I also searched Help for 'fourier' with 0 results. Could it be called something else?

Neat trick!

Re: textured photo

Chillin,
What else did you do to get the skin so much smoother than I did?

Re: textured photo

I had this problem a few years back.
Go outside and take a picture of it on a overcast day.
I laid it on a table and looked down on the picture.
You can not see the texture.

Re: textured photo

One of the best ways to get rid of this type of pattern is to photograph the picture using cross polarizing filters. One filter over your lens and one on each of your lights. Gets rid of nearly all the reflections. Another way, I was thinking of trying is taking several photos of the image with a light source positioned at different angles around the photo. Combine all the images using darken. This might get rid of the specular highlight in the indivual images. Haven't tried doing that yet, but it should work.
