Hello

 

As many analogic photographer i use lightroom to take off the dust from the negatives.

We have to spend hours to remove one by one the dust point using the spot view.

 

Would it be possible to make this process automatic ? We could use a slider to choose the sensitivity (the same than dust view) and we could correct after the corrections proposed by lightroom classic.

 

Thanks in advance.

The spot removal tool is designed to remove sensor dust from digital images. It doesn't work well with scanned negatives, where there may be hundreds or even thousands of dust spots, which will slow Lightroom down to a crawl. Besides, you'll end up with overlays on top of each other, making retouching very difficult.

 

I always do spot removal on negative scans in Photoshop before importing to Lightroom.

It's much easier than in Lightroom, and ten times faster.

I use the Spot healing brush most of the time, and sometimes the Clone stamp.
