Question is there a way to clear these cracks and dirt spots?

Hello all,
I got this old photo scanned, and it just got lots of cracks/dirt on it...

Is there a way to fix the unwanted dirt/cracks without losing the details?
Anything? something? Please help otherwise i'm doomed to work on this guy's chest all night long.

Any help would be highly appreciated!!!

uniguide, welcome to RP.

images like this i use lots and lots of clone, smudge and airbrush. you could try things like color replacer and that sort, but i just find cloning easier in the long run.
