Removing Pattern from Photo

Post#1 by david » 1 week 6 days ago


I found a photograph on the internet of my local market town from around the turn of the 20th century.
It has a pattern which I assume is the result of a scan of an embossed print surface. I have tried the G'MIC Fourier Transform plug-in without great success. The best I have achieved is with anisotropic smoothing followed by sharpening, but still not very good.

Advice and suggestions most gratefully received!!!

david.

It looks like you made tremendous improvement already. Maybe all that is needed is a little cloning over the trouble spots?
Maybe the Heal synthesizer tool?

Unfortunately, if seen on a large monitor, the repetitive pattern is still fairly obvious. I shall continue to experiment.

On my monitor, cannot pick out a "repetitive" pattern. Just see the print top slightly left and bottom right. Can you post what you see?

David, is this article of any value to you for the pattern on your photo?

Pat,

Many thanks for your research and the link. It is fairly close to what I have done already, but I shall experiment!
