Started out by duplicating the original image.

Selected the dress with the Lasso tool and refined the selection using a Quick Mask.

Then transferred the selection to a new layer by Layer > New > Layer Via Copy.

Selected Filter > Noise > Dust & Scratches. Set radius to 11 and Threshold to 20.

Flatten

Clone where necessary.

Selected a New Levels Adjustment Layer … used the White and Black Eyedroppers to set the color.

Flatten

And that’s it.

It is so great to see another version, approach to cleaning up this photo. While it looks nice the lace detail is gone. I'm glad you included the radius, threshold numbers you used in dust scrtches. I am struggling with the right combination to preserve the look of the lace on the dress. I'm going to try the history paint tool and see if that would bring out the lace. Thanks for working on photo. JoyceR

Overall a nice job on a toughie. Parts of the image appear much more blurred than others. But the tones are good.

Good job overall. You might want to copy some bg detail over the person you edited out. The untinted white areas gave me the impression this is dirty rather than toned.

Pretty good job of cleaning up the damage. I haven't tried this one but it looks like a real challenge. You did great with it.
