View Full Version : Need to remove dots/cross-hatching FAST
08-12-2007, 06:36 PM
I have an old photo graph needing repair for a 50th anniversary. The image was blown up from a small 1956 newspaper cutting, and shows signs of very heavy cross-hatching. Is it possible to remove this at all? I really need this by this afternoon (6 hours from now) but have all day to work on it.
I'm using Photoshop CS2 on Windows XP
Here is the file
Thankyou in advance.

These are tricky because a lot of the fine detail is simply not there. I would recommend using a Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. Move the slider and try to find a point where the big dots start to blur together but not so much that the picture looks completely blurry. There may be a better way but I'm not sure if you need this print-worthy or if it's for a video of some kind. At least this technique is quick so you won't waste a lot of time trying it.
