The photo that I scanned has too many dust and small scratches. I tried\nthe noise filter and the healing brush.\n\nThe noise filter reduces the image's sharpness in the process and it\nremoves good small spots as if they were dust. So I feel it's not a\ngood tool for my purpose.\n\nThe healing brush is better. I have better control and I can get the\nresult I want if I keep on trying and undo. So healing brush is what I\nuse to get rid of dust and scratches. However, it takes a long time for\na mere 4 by 6 inch photo. And I have hundreds of them. So I wonder if\nthere is a better method to get rid of dust and scratches on photos in\nless time?
