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.
