Wow, Flora, this is outstanding -- and something that I'm sure almost al of us can use!

If you were doing this on a colour image would you be inclined to work on the colour channels individually or do the whole thing at once?

I haven't tried to remove the honeycomb pattern from a colour picture yet....If I remember well, Doug posted one in the past .... I'm going to find it and work on it .... I'll let you know.

Take care ...

Hi Leah,

... sorry to get back to you so late....

I found the post .... here

The image wasn't actually posted by Doug, but I hope it's OK ... I tried both approaches on it .... and, for this particular picture, I found the 'overall' technique worked best ....

Thanks! I have a whole bunch of these from the 1970s and will have to try this out (I've never been entirely satisfied with what I've managed to do before).

Your Tutorial

Flora:

Thank you so much for doing this wonderful tutorial! Its the best method for removing photopaper texture I have seen.

I used your method on FrannyMae's photo of her Mom and colorized it. (FrannyMae told me the color of the hair an eyes).

Wow! Thank you very much for the compliment! The hard part was done by using your method which made the colorizing a lot easier. It was a pretty picture to begin with.

Flora, Thanks so much for your tutorial. When I look back at what we were accomplishing with texture removal just one year ago..it's amazing how far we, "you" have progressed.
Alan, what you have done is really superb.
My question is this. Rather than Neat Image, I used Noise Ninja and tried to use the absolute minimum amount of reduction to retain critical detail in the eyes, mouth and nose. There is still a small amount of noise left. Do I try to take it further to remove all texture or should I leave well enough alone. What I'm afraid of is losing detail in her right eyebrow.
Thanks for your help!

Cheers
Dave
