Restoration Plug-ins

Are there any effective PS CS3 plug-ins for removing dirt and dust marks from old pics rather than doing manually using the history brush and gaussian blur?

Thanks

I've had good luck in the noise area - dust/dirt feature tool thing.

welcome to RP, Davet.

two of the most used here are Polaroid Dust and Scratch Removal and Neat Image.

Thumbs up Re: Restoration Plug-ins

Craig, I used to use Polaroid Dust & Scratches! Got rid of your choice of either white or black specs. It was free, too.

Since you mentioned it I just fired up the installer, and it worked on my Intel Mac and Leopard! I never did use the standalone version, but it works (takes a bit of experimentation though, since there doesn't seem to be a live preview).

Photoshop CS3 doesn't seem to recognize it as a plug-in, not surprisingly.

Re: Restoration Plug-ins

hi plugs,

glad to hear it works on those systems. i'm a little surprised. this little app has been around for a long while now. and no, there is no live preview in stand-alone mode, but it's pretty easy to work with, nonetheless.

i wish polaroid would upgrade this and do a formal mac version as well.

ummm, i'd be very surprised if cs3 didnt recognize this. as far as i recall, it's a standard .8bf file in the child/parent mode. do remember that when using within an editor, there is a pixel limit on image size. that may be why you're having trouble.
