    .... only being a little sarcastic and somewhat old school, I would say
    the best program for removving dust spot from pictures would be a
    program of carefully cleaning your camera and lenses before shooting
    inportant pictures when dust spots might make a difference. The
    program would consist of a blower bulb, some lens cloths, maybe a bit
    of lens cleaner and some elbow grease. If you really want to piss
    people off, you throw in a can of compressed air :)))

    BTW, if that is all you are doing with photo software, Photoshop
    Elements, probably Gimp, or any number of other inexpensive programs
    will suit your needs. It ain't rocket science.

    Spot healing brush in PSCS2 is fantastic, beats cloning, or even the
    healing brush in PS7 or PSCS. ohterwise:
    When scanning: Use a scanning program with Digital Ice, also clean the
    film, The Polaroid anti dust works in a pinch, but softens alot to be
    realy effective.
    If you have black spots on your digital camera, clean the sensor.
    If you are getting white or colored dust on your digicam you may have

    Bart's right, polaroid's dust and scratch remover is the best free solution
    to this problem. He says use masks, I say use the PS undo brush to regain
    lost highlights (in the eyes, primarily).
