  • Remove scan pattern old 45 sleeve (losslessly?)

    Is there a way I can remove this block pattern from this scan without losing detail? I have a bunch of others I'd also like to use that all have similar issues and were scanned with the same settings.

    Well the picture you have the link for is tiny, 180 pixels square. To get another example try Google images. I found the identical poster there at a higher resolution. Of course if you have the cover, rescan at a higher resolution.

          I increased the contrast and applied Neat Image a noise reducing filter. Sometimes with this sort of a pattern a FFT filter can work.

            Looks pretty good. I've noticed that 90% of the noise is in the red and green channels. Any thing specific I could do with that to improve?

              The FFT filter didn't work for me, so using the channel mixer I converted to grayscale and muted the influence of the red and green channels. After adding back the color I played around with curves to reduce the impact of the repeating pattern while keeping most of the grunge for effect.

              Cheers,

              Kevin
