Re: [Gimp-user] Despeckling photos

There are a lot of options. What I have used most is Wavelet Decompose (see
here for an explanation - ). I fix
old family photos that are usually full of scratches, etc.

This technique works, but note it takes a lot of time to work on each layer.

Check out more of Pat David's guides and YouTube where there are folks
who've posted videos for using GIMP. Best search terms are: enhance,
retouch, restore, fix, restoration, etc.

I have several photos which I'd like to try to clean up as best I can.

have similar problems. They look like a bad copy of a black and white
photo with
large amounts of speckling.

I'm not sure which tools to use. Should I use some combination of blurs or
masks?. Is there a particular tool that might be useful. Should the
contrast be
adjusted?  I'm just looking to make minimal improvements. I know that I do
have a lot to work with. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
