Join Janine Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with newspaper and magazine images, part of Photoshop Elements 9: Scanning and Restoring Photos.
Moire pattern is the effect you see, those dots and squares when you scan a…photo from the newspaper.…If we zoom-in close on the photo in this historic newspaper, you can see the…dots or Moire pattern clearly.…What we need to do is sort of connect the dots of the pattern and make it a…little less obvious.…Begin by making a duplicate of the original layer either by keyboard…shortcut Ctrl on a PC or Command on a Mac, plus J. Double-click on your…layer name and rename it.…
We'll name this one Moire and click next to it to accept.…With the duplicate layer selected, go up to the Filter menu and select Blur…and then Gaussian Blur.…You want to have a very light hand with the blur.…If you go too heavy with it, it can make a real mess.…Move the Radius slider up to see how it will affect the look of the photo, then…bring it back down to the low end.…
I'll try a Radius of about 1.5 pixels, then click OK to accept.…Let's see what it look like before and after, and to get a better look,…let's zoom-in again.…
