I have an old photo from a photo booth that I want to scrap. It scanned pretty well, except for the spots that are all over the photo. (Obviously, my mother didn't take very good care of her photos.) ;)
How can I remove those spots? TIA!! (And don't you think this is just hilarious?)

I'm thinking the clone tool??
That pic set is HILARIOUS! great great vintage pics!

I've used despeckle before, and it works really well for spots. But, yeah, I'm betting the clone tool would work just as well.

Just make sure to go with the folds of the curtains if you use the clone tool. You don't want those curtains in the back to look weird. LOL

also a quick desaturate will tone down the color as well. good luck! can't wait to see this scrapped it is so cute!

I messed with it some last night. Let's see...I used the clone tool, the scratch tool, and even despeckled. LOL. It still has some junk, but I *think* it's a bit better. I'm at work and forgot to put it in the bucket to show here, but I have a before and after on my blog. You just have to click on each to see the detail. Notice in original there was a scratch on my mom's nose that is gone on the new one. ;)
Thanks for your help and CC is always welcome to make it even better! :)
