Need help with a scanned picture

Hi there, I have a scanned picture, not really a big size but still retouchable I guess and its entirely striped. What steps do I need to do/think of to remove the stripes or sort of 'iron' the picture? The stripes are horizontal and when zooming in I can see the RGB colors in it.

Thanks.

Re: Need help with a scanned picture

Olbaldy, thanks but I can't attach the pic, otherwise I would have done it already. Reason is, its a picture of a maxim and fhm model and she entrusted me the pic without signing anything, so it might sound stupid on the thread but I want to keep trust from those who are sending me pics.

What I can do is attach a part of the pic without the girl on it (sorry guys ), hang on.

Re: Need help with a scanned picture

Perfectly understandable! T'is called integrity, and appreciated in this litigious world!

Maybe this will help some..
I tried the FFT filter, with poor results (maybe I didn't know what I was doing)
then tried Image Analyzer with fair results
Into Photoshop and used a plug-in from Imagenomic called Noiseware at the Default setting

Good luck!

Hey thanks, it looks so much better and Noiseware doesn't really cost that much.

Re: Need help with a scanned picture

Noiseware is great - it's saved me many times when I've had to shoot at very high ISOs. I also find it's better than most any other plug in for smoothing skin (including Imagenomic's sister app, Portraiture). I now use it at default settings in a set of batch actions that I run on all images immediately after downloading from the camera (I also keep all RAW files for those large enlargements, etc), convert to jpeg to present to the client.

Re: Need help with a scanned picture

I used 2xFFT. First on the full picture & the second time on the leg skewed to get the pattern in a horizontal position. At the end some surface blur.

Re: Need help with a scanned picture

@ Frank, thanks for contemplating. I'm trying out the community edition now (the free one) and I like it, although I am tempted to use full suppression all the time so I have to be careful about it. It is a program that I think its worth it to buy, even as a beginner.

@chillin thanks for the efforts. What is FFT? about the skew, I guess my eyes aren't trained well enough for now because by first glance I was convinced the stripes were already horizontal haha...lol, or...I entirely forgot that pixels are straight sequenced and picture under a degree have to be skewed first.
