    Right i can understand the blurryness, as i said i was tracking the top aeroplane and not the middle one and was not aware i had captured that. Im going to have a play and i will try lightening it up and some noise reduction and i will re post.

    Thank you for your help everyone. I will have a go go with the equalising later.

    Do you guys think there is any hope with the sharpness?

    You duplicate the layer, equalize your new layer, click on the base layer (the origonal) and start cloning away. When you have finished removing the dust spots, delete the duplicate layer.

    Here's what I normally do. Although someone else have maybe a better idea or methods on how they do it.

    I look at the frame, I clone out those I can see with my naked eye, then I go on with the equalize tool, what it does is that highlights the dustspots. After hitting the tool, now you would know where it is located, you then press the button CTRL+Z . It takes you back one step, actually to the point before your usage of the tool. If you're not sure where it was, I guess you could try using the tool again. I bet someone else could explain it better than I did. Otherwise try PM'ing Eric Smith or Jid..

    Hey Oliver.

    Instead of Inverting the photo, you'd get a better chance in spotting those hidden dustbunnies by using "equalize, just below "invert" if you are on CS2.

    *cs2 -> Image -> Equalize...

    started a topic Dust and softness

    Dust and softness

    Ive just had this photo rejected for dust spots and undersharp, ive inverted the image in photoshop and removed all the ones i could find so im intruiged where the others are.
    With the sharpness i was tracking the top aeroplane and the other two where just a lucky capture in the frame, the planes where a good 20 feet apart so of course they will not be sharp. I did not realise i had even got all three in the frame untill i opened the files up on my computer.
    What do you guys think:
