looks heavily processed though.

I don't get why they had to mess with the high res scan. The end result looks horrible.

Wow - only on netphoria you will find people complain about something free & work that no one else bothered to do in the last 17 years. If you look at Andrea's body of work (andreagiacobbe.net), you will see that it is highly processed and saturated. This is how he wanted the photograph to look like.

Here is the unedited 6400 px wide & 35 MB file: http://bystarlight.org/misc/groupmcis168.jpg

If any of you feel that you can do a better job restoring the picture, I would be more than glad to upload that version.

No offense meant. To each their own. I just think the unedited file looks a lot better than the final version. There isn't much you can do here other than fixing the white blemishes and changing the contrast and saturation very slightly. It actually looks really good if you simply downsize the image to a more reasonable resolution, instead of trying to keep it hi-res and smoothing out all details.

Yeah, to each their own. That is why I went out of my way to provide the unedited high-res version. I also went out of my way to get the scan in the first place.

When I am in the mood again, I might revise and give it another try. I understand the importance of this picture to many fans.

it's like his balls are screaming 'let me out'

It's Bram right? Thanks for the scan - much appreciated :)
I think a scan without any settings would be better - sometimes the derasterize creates weird line patterns or causes a bit of blur on details.

I'll keep this next version close to the scan and not go all Giacobbe on it lol
