... In Attachment 1 you can see my colour correction on the inside of the glass using this method .... A bit overdone, but I wanted the difference to be very clear .... I used this method to correct the discolorations on faces, hair, jacket etc. as well...
For this example I used a Brush Opacity of 60%, but, usually, I start with 25/30% Opacity and gradually add/correct the colour with different passes...
6) After the colour correction, I run the picture through Neat Image to minimize the remaining noise ... (Attachment 2)
... and in Attachment 3 you can see the before and after ... the spots, colour or otherwise are gone, the skin is nice and smooth, and no loss of definition...
Hope this helps..

Re: How to remove stains or spots from a photo
I think there is only one real stain in this photo, and that's a big blue one. The stains you notice are probably 'holes' in the blue stain. The attached picture shows the result of using the color deconvolution plug-in to remove the blue stain from the photo. After that some overall color correction. I did not use any brush, mask, selection or noise filtering. You can get the color deconvolution plug-in at 4N6site.com.
