Turning a newspaper print into a photo.
This was an interesting little restoration. To turn an old newspaper print into a photo that could be displayed and enjoyed for many years to come. Krissie was very keen to get this piece of history restored for her families genealogy research.
Newspapers and magazines as well all use small dots to prints their images. Newspapers have larger dots that magazines and when scanned and copied they are copied as well which doesn't make for a nice display image. After scanning the old newspaper I opened up the image in Photoshop and the first job was to get rid of the dots that make up the print. Using the box blur filter I can remove the dots to make a smooth tone image that we can then work on further. After the normal clean up of the image and some contrast adjustments, curves adjustments and sharpening. The restoration is finished.
