This is my first posting, and I hope that this issue has not been covered before/recently. I have searched the archives and couldn't find anything.
Anyway, I would like to upload some older photographs as I have done before, however, I would like to know the best way in which to do this. I scan my photos, not the negatives, and then treat a bit like the digital versions, with one notable exception. I remove noise but this can make the photo look a bit soft. Is is better to leave the noise on, afterall, it is a photograph? Any advice or help from the many experts out there would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Post the same pic with and without noise and you'll get many replies (a few might be intersting).

I have always found that noise removal software (I use Neat Image) removes noise quite nicely but indeed does 'soften' the end result, irrespective whether the image comes from a flatbed scanner or a film negative scanner. Using Photoshop LE I just apply one dab of the sharpen tool to the whole image and this seems to do the trick quite nicely. Personally I think it is better to remove the noise however others might say otherwise  Wink
