Flora, I have a perfect image you are free to use for a tutorial. It is a picture of my mother and the only major problem with it is the honeycomb texture. I have been fairly successful using my new scanner to get rid of the texture but I would be more than happy to get the original/unaltered scan to you. I have posted the scan below. The attachment is only 100k of course, but you can see the texture quite easily. If you would like to use this for a tut just let me know how to get it to you (what size, resolution, format, etc.) I can FTP or e-mail up to 10MB.

I added a cropped version so the texture is more visible.

Hi FrannyMae,

What a beautiful lady!!!!!

Thank you so much .... your mother's picture is just perfect!!!! Even if only 100kb it's very clear and, as you said, 'you can see the texture quite easily' ... I'll start working on the tutorial immediately and let you know as soon as it's up...

Thanks again ...

Take care.

Flora, I'm glad you'll be able to use the picture. She was a very lovely lady and this is one of only two picture I have of her as a young lady. Luckily they have both been well cared for (compared to some I have seen!) I do plan on working on this one myself and enlarging from the original 3x5 to possibly 8x10...wish me luck!

So until somebody takes these magic "low-level" processes and turns them into a user-friendly (comercial) tool, they're going to be out of reach for just about everybody around here.
(I graduated in this general area - a long time ago, but this stuff scares me off!)

Meanwhile, we'll just have to learn to be expert users of Photoshop.

FrannieMae, what a lovely picture! It's perfect too, as far as the honeycomb texture problem.

I look forward to the tutorial Flora, I am sorry I could not get permission for the other photo.

... in my case, even that wouldn't be "low enough" ....

Fascinated by the results, I ventured a bit deeper ....

It would be nice if someone could create a 'Rosetta Stone' for these hieroglyphs

That program is a bit tricky to use but there is a Photoshop filter which can do FFT/IFFT and can be used to give similar results, get it here: http://www.pages.drexel.edu/~avc25/archive.htm To use this you run the filter on the image, look for bright "stars" on the output channels, clone them out and then perform the IFFT. This works better if you use the HSB/HSL<->RGB conversion filter to convert to HSB before editing, then convert back just before the IFFT. I've attached the result of applying this technique to the original image. This took less than five minutes to do.

The second image is the result after general repair and contrast adjustment.
