Hi folks.

I have an image which I like a lot. The problem is dust. Normally I can deal with it but this one has me beat. There are two big spots and they're on a uniform background so that any editing I do is immediately noticeable.

Would any of you guys be confident enough to take over this part of the editing for me? All credit will be given if the final image is posted anywhere, public or otherwise.

I normally wouldn't ask this but I know this image is a keeper. It could be perfect.

On a uniform backround? That should be easy! Which one is it?

Hi Zorro, yep that link has disappeared... but as Thomas says if it's on a uniform background it *should* be possible to do something with it. Do you use Photoshop? If cloning isn't convincing, maybe the healing brush?

Hi guys. I didn't post a link, the pictures a secret, lol. I'm googling "healing brush" right now. I'll be back. Cloning doesn't work too well. I'm trying to understand the cloning tool in Lightroom, for which I have a video, but with no more successthan CS3. I'll give it a go with the healing brush.

A secret photo Zorro! Now you've got us intrigued!

Let us know how you get on - Photoshop's got loads of enahnced clone type tools and hopefully one of them should produce a convincing effect...

Bravissimo!

It worked. I've never heard of the healing brush. Thank the Lord for Adobe Help.The photo's nothing special really, just another HDR effort, lol.

just on to sharpening and toning now and I'll let you guys see it first.

Big thanks to Thomas & Gordon for rallying round.

A bit congrats to Thomas too for becoming the person with the most posts on the Cameralabs forum! Not bad considering he joined a year after me!

Looking forward to seeing your photo Zorro!
