Re: [Gimp-user] Photo restoration - crinkles, lines, etc.

Here is an old technique that should still work fine. I have used it
in the past with good results.

Or take a look at wavelet-decompose (video from our Pat David :) )

I have an old photo printed about 1941.  It was sepia toned, and I scanned it at
1200 dpi originally.  I used desaturate to make it black and white.   I've
attached a portion of the photo as a jpeg so you can see the repairs that need
to be made.  The portion in the attachment shows the dress, shoes, and brick
where the person was standing.  You'll notice lines, crinkles, and otherwise
flakes (?) on the photo.  My guess is this deterioration is due to its age, and
the original photo is covered in these.  I would like to restore it, but I do
not know what to do to remove the lines, crinkles, or flakes that appear all
over the photo.  My GIMP experience is limited.  Anyone have ideas on what tools
and in order what the processes I should use?
