  • remove texture

    Hi All,
    Can you tell me how to removed texture from old photos without the lost of detail? I would like to remove the texture, retouch the photo then replace the texture. I use CS5 and Topaz ( middle of the road user on both)
    I have been visiting this site for a long time and have learned so much. Thank You.

    Re: remove texture

    Could you upload an example of the image? Perhaps a low resolution version + a 100% crop?
    (Or upload the complete file somewhere and link it).

    With a real example it is easier to address the problem.

    If the texture is a repeating pattern using the FFT-technique might do the trick. If you are talking about texture that is more like noise, then it would have to done in a different way (perhaps a frequency separation, or similarly save a sample of the noise as a repeating pattern that can be blended back in later in areas that have lost the noise due to retouching).

      Here's a similar thread to "Fixing a strange texture on this old photo." But the last thread did not fully relate to my restoration and left out key steps in the process.

      Attached is a cropped area from the image. The photograph was scanned from a textured print, which appears...

      Remove texture from this photo
      by Aurock
      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?...

      Thx for a great site. I have just started a (quite possibly big) project of making a 5 generation family photo album. Some of the approx 30 year old pictures has a less than becoming texture to them i have trouble removing.

      how do I remove paper texture from old photo
      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.

      I've attached a detail. (I sharpened the image to try to make the texture more...

      Paper Texture Problem
      by SWolfe
      Sorry, seems my attachment didn't "stick" with my last post attempt.

      Hi, I'm hoping I can find some tips on how to deal with a paper texture problem.

      I have a series of pictures I am restoring and many of them have a deep paper texture pattern that is very ugly....
