  • Interference

    Hey there, I'm new here, so first of all I'd like to say HELLO to every member of this forum! Ok, so I got - well, I'm just thinking about it for now - a job restoring some photo scans from old magazines, sounds kind of easy, nothing fancy. They're just simple b&w halftone photos and would be a piece of cake de-screening them using FFT or Sattva, but the problem is that this is all they have! They can't re-scan anything since they don't have the originals, so we're stuck with these! This is actually what I'd have to work with, and - as you'll see in the examples - the worst part is that they have something I'd call a halftone or moire "interference" pattern. Now, here's the question: is there ANY way to get rid of this kind of pattern? Some of the photos are kind of better, some of them are even worse! Thanks in advance guys! Unfortunately I couldn't come up with a solution yet. Poljakov

      Hello everyone! New here and just downloaded the pattern suppression V2.7 plugins for photoshop. When I run the plugin I get a message that the command "filter" is not available at this time message. Can anyone shed some light on this for me. I am not getting the crossbar and star pattern screen like the tutorial shows - my image is actually still visible. Thank You!

        Hi Suzanne71
        Did you follow all of the install instructions and then also restart Photoshop?

          Greetings: I do restoration on old family images and images of things involving my client's families; I work often with rare images that have been digitized or a client has found in a historic reference and scanned it; they are often over a century old. I have several of these kind of images and am also looking for a solution. So far, I've tried three of three different PS tutorials with no success. I was pointed to this forum as a place which may have help. This is one of the images I need to clean up. This is from a 1901 monograph.

            Removing a Pattern
            by topaz
            I have cleaned and repaired old papers and documents (cloth erasers are great for cleaning them while treating them gently and avoiding damaging ink, and I'm sure we all know about storing them in acid free boxes and keeping them away from light) but not photos. I have 3 oversize signed and numbered...

            Storage for 3x3 Photos
            by chickenbird
            I hope this is the correct forum for a storage question.

            I need to find a place either in the real world or online where one can purchase acid-free photo albums that have the right size and shape pockets for those old 3x3 pictures.

            I have a ton of them that I found in the...

            A bit of a business question
            by grafx
            Ok in a nutshell I need to know if I handled something properly:
            I have client that has a very large clientele base and shoots many photos which I then retouch. The money is good, but it can be stressful at times. In the last 3-4 months my client has been getting rather bad at paying on time...

            Hello to everyone; I have been a hobbyist with intermediate-level skills in retouching for about 2 years now. I discovered this website when I came across a description of it in my copy of PSE 11 "missing manual". Wish I'd noticed that short blurb back when I first bought the book. I hope...
