help would be appreciated with this restoration

Hi

This is a first post, I have enjoyed looking thru different threads, and the ways people tackle different problems. It all adds to the techniques at our disposal.

I have posted a scan of an image from the 1960's, the original is 800kb at 300dpi. I have had difficulty removing all the horizontal lines fron the red trousers and bike and the boy.

Techniques I have tried are FFT....DCT, I have also used duplicate layer and the blending multiply, this helps but is not a solution. I am restoring the photo using frequency separation, but to be honest ihave used a lot of different idseas... would be grateful for me....thanks, please help

Ian

Ian, perhaps not the elegant solution you are looking for but as the areas are perhaps not of the greatest importance have you considered masking and apply a little blur?
The image below was done using motion blur on the masked areas of about 5 pixels at -90 degree. Little bit more work and it might look ok?

Hi
You may also select the trousers then copy on a new layer and shift 1 pixel up or down the new trousers (check blending modes such as soft light or overlay), you'll keep a bit of the texture if there any, with minimum hassle.

Selecting using the red channel or "color range" may help a lot....

Well I agree with copying the layer and blurring some and using a layer mask to limit the area of Blur. I found that using surface blur worked well

I worked with the curves and applied a bit of blur to the trousers using a layer mask.

I applied a median filter to a mask selection of the trousers and changed the blending mode to luminosity. Surface blur looks to be the best way to go. Just demonstrating a different method thats all.

I never done restoration before, here is my first try... Nice work everyone...

I just couldn't resist to add this one with a cartoonish touch...
