I’m currently working on a project for my local town. It involves making streetname signs in the style of WWII era. Along with the streetname i need to engrave some text and also a photograph. The texts is not a problem because those are just vectors.
The problem is that i have a bunch of old pixelated photos that need to look decent-ish. I’ve tried a bunch of effects in paint.net(bitmap image software) but can’t get any decent results.
If anyone could give me some tips or feedback please let me know! I’ll include some images to show you what i’m dealing with.
I used a photo filter program called “OnOne”… very good filters to enhance photos, but a bit pricey but good. I didn’t take it all the way to illustrator for an actual engrave file… but will be glad to do it on this one, if you like.
