I have some 3x5 glossy photos taken from about ten years ago. They are no longer in the best condition, and have dust specs and superficial scratches on them. Recently, I decided to scan them and was less-than-happy with the result.
For example, one of the photo's is of me and my friend against a blue-ish wall behind us. The entire scanned image, though, is covered in little white specs. I have black hair, but it looks almost as if i have dandruff lol. even the blue background has a bunch of little white speckles
I was wondering if there was a tool or filter or other way to remove some of the small white specs from the picture.
I am trying to remove two people from the background of this old B&W photo of my Grandpa and Great Uncle. how to get them out and keep the photo looking realistic? I don't mind changing the background, I just can't figure out and easy way to get this done, aside from zooming in really close, cutting them out, and pasting them on another background. I just don't know how realistic this will look.
I'm a furniture maker in Japan, and usually take photos of my work on the road next to my shop. I like the texture of the blacktop. Using Gimp, I'm working up the learning curve, and don't know how to remove the white lines and dirt at the upper corners, and extend the pavement to cover it. I'm hopeful that with Gimp, it can be accomplished.
In Photoshop 11, I have used a tool, similiar to the clone, that blends an unwanted object from a photo and replaces the object with pixils adjacent to it, but I can no longer find it. How do I do this. It seemed to work better for me in some cases better than the clone.
I'm trying to scan a photo out of an old book to use in my own book. The photo looks lovely in the book, BUT when I scan it, it comes out all blotchy and no matter what effect I apply I cannot find a way to improve it.
I'm scanning using the "import" option and thence using a Canon scanner at 600dpi.I have tried it with the "unsharp mask" and "descreen" on or off, and all combinations, but the pic still looks rotten.
When I print from Elements 11, I get a small white border on bottom and right of picture (should be borderless).If I print from another source e.g. iPhone, I do not get this border. How can I eliminate border in Elements 11?
I am wanting to know what is the term used when you have a mainly black and white photo and wanting to add a bit of colour to a particular thing ie flower, hat etc whilst the rest of the photo remains in black and white. Finally how is this achieved using Photo Elements II.
I need to know if Photoshot element software will enable me to remove an unwanted object from a photo ( a sign in the background for example). Also if I have a good shot with a bad facial expression, I could remove bad facial shot and replace with a better one from another photo?
I would like to place a thin white border inside a photo..then I would like to erase a small portion of that border along the verticle side to put my name. I think there is a frame within PSE 11 that does this but I can not find it. I tried to add an example by going to insert photo but I don't think it worked.
After converting a color photo to black and white, the image that prints out has a sepia tone to it. The image looks black and white on my screen and when I print a black and white image directly from the internet, it prints out in good black and white mode. What adjustment is available to get rid of this sepia tone?
I have some old photos that I intend to scan into LR4 using a CanoScan 9000E - I also have the negatives.Is there any advantage to scanning from the negatives v the photos? Does scanning the negs give me more control over any post work I do in LR4
How can one remove a raised texture pattern from a scan of the original photo?
Have several wedding photos scanned into PS Elements that were printed by the pro, photography studio on a raised pattern paper. How to remove the honey comb type pattern so that the picture canbe printed flat on glossy color photo paper?
I am a beginner. I am looking at different progams to see which one suits me better and easy to work with. So far adobe isn't easy at all. Is there a way to take a black and white photo and make one thing in the photo in color? I have elements 11.
when I scan to my computer it was set to go to my documents, now it goes to Lightroom. When I try to open it in my documents it is a lightroom link and sends me to lightoom. the same thing happens with photos I take and import from my card. they are not a proper jpeg they have a lightroom icon and no matter what I do clicking on the photo takes me to and opens up lightroom.
