Faults: paper texture

Not all images are printed on smooth paper; some are printed on textured paper for artistic effect. The different shadows and textures appear as rough shadows when scanned. Unlike screening, which is in a somewhat regular pattern, paper texture is random noise, and much harder to get rid of. This tag also applies to scanned cloth like dakimakura.

See this topic for more information on how to filter these types of scans:
