    Retouching scanned photos

    As I have many scanned photos, Actually scanned b/w and colour films as well as slides. Iíve been looking for ways to improve the quality of the scans. Iíve been using the free (but very old... 2002 I believe?) Polaroid Dust and Scratch remover first, then imported the pictures in Photoshop Elements (just upgraded to the 2020 version). I usually remove some additional scratches in the embedded Dust and scratch remover, adjust colours, contrast, etc. Then I remove some noise with the free (yes, I like free stuf...) Dfine 2. However, when I try to sharpen the image, the noise get bad, undoing the noise removal from the previous step. I downloaded the trial versions of Topaz Denoise AI and Sharpen AI, but I am quite disappointed (they seem to do a better job with digital picture though) with the results. Any suggestion for finding the right balance between sharpens and noise removal?

    Technically you can do that, but the quality isn't going to be the same! I've worked for a while in a photo bureau; our main activity was restoring old pictures. As you can guess, I know a thing or two about photo retouching service. As long as you don't intend to print those photos in large sizes, I don't see why you're worried about that. It's cool that you'll have old pictures stored somewhere on a cloud. If I were you, I wouldn't bother so much to retouch them (unless they are super important to you, of course.)
