  • Odd problem - Too much detail

    Hi All,

    I am scanning two B/W 8 x 10 photos from 1945. The problem is that the scan picks up too much detail, lines in the photo paper used at the time. The original does not show the lines to the naked eye. I did the guassian blur and looks better but I don't like the loss of sharpness that it had before. Is there a better way to "filter" the image without loosing so much detail?

    Thanks,
    John

    hi,
    I am wondering if your getting moire effect.. if you can i think it best to tr to take of the issue at time of scnning... a couple of ideas... change scanning resolutions, low or high, but generally i seen going to 150% or more than what your doing helps a lot... also if you have descreening in your scanner... if it active turn it off and see.. if not that doesn't do it.. then experiement with the descreen settings and see if that helps

    there alot of article on the morie effect... also there a ton of tutorials on the net and here... on removiing morie effect using photoshop ..
