    Default How to fix these photo

    Hello,

    I scanned my wedding photo into JPG using the HP flatbed scanner, and the picture turned out ugly.

    The picture sample can be found in
    http://sg.f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/...11.jpg&.view=t

    There are little "dot" around the picture, and I'm having hardtime removing them.

    Any suggestion on how I can fix them?

    The pic is too small to see the problem that you mentioned.

    Anyway, you can try using Photoshop to "heal" the sopts away, or the "clone" tool. clean the scanner and the picture?

    Default Looks like a good scanner...there...

    Hiee...

    Just a question.....the image looks like it have been scanned from a "canvas textured " photoprint that you normally get from photo studios....is that the possible cause of the texture????

    Please confirm this...

    It looks like if its tha case (textured paper) then, it looks like you have a really good scanner that could capture those details(DOF)....

    regards,
    me

    Are the dots due to some surface texture on the photo? Anyway, flatbed scanners should have a "de-screen" filter in the software. It should get rid of the patterns.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    I will try it tonight. The picture is "canvas textured", just like those that you normally saw on wedding album.

    You can also use the "Smart Blur" filter in Photoshop. Just play around with the values to remove the patterns and finish up with a small amount of Unsharp mask to restore the details.

    No luck!!!

    I tried de-screen function, not much improvement.

    Any other suggestion? I know Photoshop can help, but I'm not so good in the software. There are so many features...

    Or anyone provide such service???

    Do a good scan and email to me (at least 360dpi). I'll see if I can help. Don't worry...it's FOC!

    From my experience, those white spot could be due to dust and tiny particles on your photo/negative surface or scanner glass surface. Do clean, wipe, blow before scanning, save you a lot headache.
