Ok so I've had allot of old war pictures for a while but I just discovered TONS of them about 2 hours ago....totally fine with scanning them my self its fun! Some of them are damaged and some just have small artifacts that I assume can be removed...So far I've scanned most of the ones that I want @ 6.5k resolution 800dpi in uncompressed TIFF files RGB with an Alpha channel....blowing some of these photo's up almost reminds me of seeing those old films now remastered in 1920x1080p on BluRay! The photos all look great! Some look amazing at 6.5k while others look blurry but all will look amazing IMO once touched up at 1920x1080p with proper edge enhancing.... I want to restore the ones with tears in the sky or just the little blips of old film...I am very familiar with FCP X (Don't throw rocks guys please :O) and the settings of Compressor 4, I want to build a giant slide show video and master it on a Blu-Ray disc for my family....I think I will put to rest any doubts of HD they might have But before I do that I need to touch the photo's up! I don't have photo shop and if I did I would probably not be anywhere closer anyway...that program is seriously one giant nightmare...but if I must I will use photoshop. But does anyone have suggestions for my little project? I know a ton about modern digital cinematography but old analog photography is a mystery to me, a very interesting and fascinating mystery at that!
