Re: stubbornly spotty

True, very hard to tell from that little image. Please try and post a larger one, even if it's still at 72 ppi.

It vaguely resembles "silvering", in which case you can find numerous methods on RetouchPro to minimize it. If it's not silvering, it may be very hard to minimize since it does not appear to be consistent enough to be removed by filters.

I often examine the color attributes of the spots and see if they can be isolated by finding something unique about them.
