Andy, it is clear that there are dust specks on the original, however if you look at the image, particularly the background, there appears to be strong color noise which is not typical of color film. It appears to have been generated largely by the scanner. You can verify this by taking a mignifying glass and examoning the paper photo to check for alternating color dots.
The image is 1.68 inches on a side. If you want to print the restored image at approx 8 x 8 inches then you should be scanning the original at min of 2400 DPI. Such a scan will also make it easier to do the restoration. You could then upload the full size scan somewhere for members to download.
Regards, Murray

Re: last pic of mum dad

Andy, neither of you new files are 1200 dpi. The 1st is 300 dpi just like your orig posting. You 2nd is save as 1200 dpi but if you check the size it is only 0.85 inches meaning effectively it is the orig size at 600 dpi - still inadequate.
If your scanner can only achieve 1200 dpi, my guess is it is quite old and probably very low end which explains why you are getting that heavy color noise.
Try recanning again but but try to see why your software is resizing it down. Also, when you take the scan, turn OFF all of the scanner auto settings - no descreen, no color adjustment, no tone adjustment, NO brightness adjustment, no saturation adjustment, no auto anything. Then save the raw scan preferably as an uncompressed tiff or psd at full size.
Finally if the image is important, consider taking it to a phtoshop or a friend with a higher end scanner and get the best quality scan that you can.
Regards, Murray

I think that the photobucket is resizing it.

Levels
Contrast (slight)
Color corrected
Reduced color noise

A few other corrections, but this is the end result.
