I have a very good friend who checked his one-time use cameras when flying home. They went through the deep x-ray scanner at the airport and the images are covered in noise and have become quite pixelated because of this. I am looking for help in trying to clear them up and bring them back into a higher quality. (I think I broke twitter asking for help, but I’m not sure…)
If you click on it, it will pop open in a new window at full size (1545x1024) and I have enabled scrollbars and resizing for those who are interested in helping.
The photo is upside down, so I had to flip it 180 degrees. Then I duplicated the background layer and used multiply and I applied despeckle and then a gaussian blur at 1.0 to soften it. I also had to resize it due to it still look awful at full-size.
Any help regarding this would be appreciated. If there are professionals who are able to fix the photos I am sure my friend might be interested in reasonable rates. Feel free to contact me at mnlghtrose (at) gmail (dot) com.
