Natural Patterns

Wanted to know that if an image has a natural pattern to it like a canvas texture etc. do you want it back in if possible? I've found in some situations that it enhances the image while others it's no big deal. Or should we just make a judgement call per restored image?

Theresa, it depends on the photo and the damage. If it is a photo that had a matte finish and flood waters washed enough of the ink away and you are looking at a honeycomb pattern, then the texture of it will need to be changed. On the other hand if you have a canvas where there is enough texture, then keep it as the original. What really stands out if parts of the photo are different texture. Before you make a judgement call, ask your distributor or else post to the forum for feedback. That way you will know which way to go without getting your restore rejected by Quality Control.
