  • 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,

                This are two great Artworks [wood plates] from Gustave Dore... I'm creating a poster from them, but I' trying to remove the wood texture or improve the image... I ran a few methods [i.e. Moire Removal, Gaussian Blurs] but it doesn't look right... I lose a bit of definition, does anybody knows a better...

                Why is this happening?
                by ehsteve
                So my mother-in-law scanned several photos for me to work on, and they all have this problem. I don't know what kind of scanner she has. What might be causing it? And how do I tell her to make it go away?

                by mirwolf
                Hi all. i was wondering if anyone knew how to remove these lines in this scan. these are due to the material that the photgraph is made of. it seems to be a somewhat reflective umm grid/canvas like material? when i scanned it the light seemed to reflect of the lines. heres the pic. thanks in advance!...

                Hello all,

                First post here, so be kind and explain this like you would to a five year old. I'm starting a new project for my company that is going to require scanning about 600+ pages of photo albums. Usually not a big deal for the auto crop and separate functions of CS6. Here's the...

                This pattern has shown up in a couple of scanned images from pictures done in the 70s. Trying to blur this doesn't work very well because the pattern in so invassive that the amount blurring I need to do is a lot, thus destroying any details. How do you folks deal with this problem?...
