Re: scanning photos with matte finish

Thanks to the two people who have replied to my question. I'm not very knowledgeable in this area, so what I am calling a matte finish may be something else. Here's an example of what I mean.

(You may have to supply the d at the end of the url.)

The picture at the top, right of this page was scanned at 600 dpi, and I didn't get any better results with higher or lower resolution. The original photo is in great shape. In particular, the "snow" you see on the hair and long coat does not appear in the original.

The original photo has a kind of rough surface, as if someone had sprayed a liquid on it, which dried in tiny droplets. Turned at certain angle, it is highly reflective, but at other angles, it appears smooth.

Thanks for any help.
