    Photo scanning all blotchy - how to correct? PS7

    wojtczak

      Hi friends.

       

      I'm trying to scan a photo out of an old book to use in my own book.

       

      The photo looks lovely in the book, BUT when I scan it, it comes out all blotchy and no matter what effect I apply I cannot find a way to improve it.

       

      I'm scanning using the "import" option and thence using a Canon scanner at 600dpi.

       

      I have tried it with the "unsharp mask" and "descreen" on or off, and all combinations, but the pic still looks rotten.

       

      Can anyone help please?
