    How to best get a photo-like result from a printed image?

    acresofgreen Level 4

      I was scanning some old family photos and came across one that isn't an original photo but looks like it was printed on one of those little remembrance cards that are passed out at funerals and it is made up of little dots.  The scanned image ends up with a kind of plaid pattern on it because of the dots:

      I took a picture with my cell phone and it looks better.

      I have never tackled anything like this before and was wondering if there is a standard way of improving this kind of picture to look more like a photo.

       

      Thanks in advance for any tips!
