  • Remove texture from this photo

    I've tried the FFT tutorial here on retouch pro, but the end result that I get is just a slightly different shading on the image, the texture seems to all remain in tact. Can anyone get the texture off of this image and tell me perhaps what I am missing?

    All I did was run this through NeatImage and told it to "remove all noise." I suppose with selective masks and playing with the settings you could prevent the edges from becoming too soft. It's not perfect but it cuts down the work a lot.

          by Caravaggio
          Hi, I'm restoring an old photo that has a grid-like pattern from the paper it was originally printed on. I'm wondering how to remove it? The texture or grid is most evident in the highlights of the image.
