Remove dust and scratches
New dust improvement is a good idea (I'm still editing old slides scans); but it seems more improvement could be add: erase all the dust and scratch displayed, at the moment we have to erase one by one dust points. Silverfast scan program is able to do it, why not ON1 PR ?
I agree. Ai should be the ultimate tool for removing dust. I was very disappointed to discover that On1 has no dust or scratch removal feature. I guess we'll have to find a third party plugin.0
We need a smart feature for this. I like how the current Retouch tool often automatically finds a good substitute area to use for context aware fill in, but it's a one-by-one approach to day.
If the Smart Select worked better than it does today, I'd want to use that first to limit the area where the dust & scratches fixing is especially needed. Todays selection often only partially gets backgrounds or overly includes partial subjects that I don't want included.
In lieu of such a feature today, when my images have a lot of small specs today I add a layer of Noise Reduction that's set very high for Luminance noise. Yes, that softens/blurs. I invert the mask so none is showing at first. Then I softly paint in on the mask over the areas. This doesn't work for all images, of course. A similar approach with Effects > Tone Enhance allows you to decrease Detail and Noise.0
