Need plug-in for removing spots and scratches

    I have a large series of negatives that have an unmanageable number of
    spots and scratches. I have tried several methods of cleaning them and
    scanning them. Unlike my color transparencies which I can remove all
    of the spots and scratches in just a few minutes with the Clone Stamp
    Tool, it takes hours just to partially retouch the spots and
    scratches. I no longer work with film, so I guess I don't have to
    worry about this with future images, but I would like to print these
    old negatives. Is there some type of plug-in that does not destroy the
    sharpness that will help me with this? Thank you.

  3. The plug-in looks quite interesting, but not at all intuitive. Can you
    suggest where can I find something like a user's guide for it?

    It helps to read the documentation of the standalone program to get
    the terms and to play with the standalone program for a while to
    understand how the plugin works.

    You might also consider re-washing the negatives (maybe you've done
    this). Are these negs B&W or color? You didn't say.
