Restoring Scanned images


Recommended Posts

My former Father in Law has just passed away suddenly from a brain tumor.  I have several photos that I've scanned and would like to have printed for my kids and MIL. There are some scratches and a lot of "dust spots" that I would like to remove.  I would also love to remove the "noise" aka crap in the background if possible. What is the best way to go about this?  Is there a quick method to remove the white specks without spending hours with the healing brush?  Any help appreciated.  Thank you!

Is there a good way to remove the red and yellow tints on the second one?

Well, yes, by re-scanning it.  But if that isn't an option, I suppose you'll have to try gentle desaturation.

And a way to remove the background? 

One does not simply "remove" a background.  One "replaces" a background.  So, you need to tell me what you want to replace it with.
