Processing of slide scans (and airport identification)

Sat Feb 17, 2018 2:06 pm

Hi there,

recently I had several old slides professionally scanned. They came back as 42 MB TIF files in a 4800 x 3075 size but still need some optimization. The pictures are quite grainy, could need more contrast and some sharpening and maybe something else.

Unfortunately, as I am quite new to processing so I have no idea how to optimize the pictures in the best way. Especially I don't know the best sequence of the steps.

I use the Olympus Viewer 3 which can also process TIF files. Can you give me some general directions on how to process the files?

And while we're at it: Can you tell me where I made the pictures? They must have been taken in the US, either in BOS, EWR, ORD, PDX or SEA. I'm guessing it's EWR.

ImageUnknown 1

ImageUnknown 2

Thanks a lot in advance
Bart

Photo 1 appears to be EWR, based on the runway and taxiway signage.

If I had to guess, I'd say Photo 2 is EWR as well, but not sure.

If you want to send me the full-size versions, I can try an edit and then post the steps. Dropbox or something would probably be easiest.
