How to get rid of dust and scratches

    The photo that I scanned has too many dust and small scratches. I tried
    the noise filter and the healing brush.

    The noise filter reduces the image's sharpness in the process and it
    removes good small spots as if they were dust. So I feel it's not a
    good tool for my purpose.

    The healing brush is better. I have better control and I can get the
    result I want if I keep on trying and undo. So healing brush is what I
    use to get rid of dust and scratches. However, it takes a long time for
    a mere 4 by 6 inch photo. And I have hundreds of them. So I wonder if
    there is a better method to get rid of dust and scratches on photos in
    less time?

  2. Clean the photos and rescan them. It won't help with the scratches, but
    this should completely eliminate the dust. :)

    There is no such thing as completely eliminating the dust, but clean the
    photo and scanner the best you can.
