Thank you for your interest in my 36 year-old slides! I'm flattered that you ask my advice on anything photo. But here is what I did: the slide was taken on Agfa Color 100 with a Tessar lens, that was at that time optically very good. I had the photographer's shop do the scanning for me. Before I brought the slide to the shop, I took it out of the glass and framed it "naked". The scan turned out a 1.5 Mb file. The resulting pic had to be freed of grain in the background and in the dark parts. I did this in PS with Magnetic lasso followed by Blur (treshold 25 and radius 3).
My best regards to you, Ram
