  • FFT filter and shadows

    Hi all, I have a question.. I used the fft filter on a color image which was pretty pale and had a honeycomb texture.. filter worked well and I put the grey new layer over the orignal color at blend mode luminosity.. it was o.k. but the image had so lost it's thick pale color, it now looked more like an overlay blend mode. I tried everything to correct the color but gave up in the end and used my noise reduction software with a mask which worked, also used frequency separation to clone out dust and debris.. I think I must be doing something worng with the FFT filter.. I keep looking at the tutorial and can't seem to find anything wrong.. anyone else have this issue?
    I've attached a sample of what I mean. left is pattern, middle is fft, and right is what I ended up doing with noise reduction.
    Look forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks - Lynn

    Can't help much with the FFT, but it appears you did a very good job.

    FFT is just math, it has no idea what it is looking at. If your texture information is too close the image information it won't be much help. Vague, unhelpful, and largely guesswork, sorry.

      Big fan of FFT and it happily does the right thing on my work computer. On my home laptop with CS3, FFT is greyed out under filters.

      I copied and pasted both FFT and IFFT into (through the Adobe Path) Filters. Shut down, restart, open can see it but it's greyed...

      Help: FFT Filter
      by Liz
      I've been using FFT for quite some time now. I sometimes have erratic results, but more so today. Despite re-installation of FFT, none of my problems were resolved. I'm using it on black and white wedding photos from the 70's, full of honeycomb. Lovely B&W's slightly discoloured through...

      FFT Madness

      Hi all

      I'm at my wits' end on this. I've searched this forum and pulled up all that had to do with FFT, I've installed the fft and ifft filters (in three different folder because I never see this filter appear anywhere!)

      I run Pshop 7.01 on a PC....where exactly do I find...
