Help - Fast Cleaning Up Imperfections in an image (scratches, dust)

Hi

What is the fastest way to fix imperfections like in the letters in the screenshot below?

Currently, I use the clone tool to get a nice all black spot and then keep clicking all over.

Or, I use the spot healing brush tool to remove the white.

However, both of those methods take forever, tens or hundreds of clicks

I tried using the Paint Bucket Tool however that will make the black blacker but it did not remove the white blemishes.

Is there a faster way to do this at once for an element?

thanks

David

Make it a Smart Object (in the Layers panel, select that layer and right-click and select Convert to Smart Object). Then apply Dust & Scratches as a Smart Filter (Filter > Noise > Dust & Scratches...). Adjust the slider as needed. The colors should remain the same. You might have some minor touch up after that, but Dust & Scratches should get you much closer to your end result.

I would say the same thing Myra suggested. However with that method, you might get a little loss if there are any fine edges. Kind of doubtful with this type, but if you do, I would use the smart filter layer mask and a small brush to paint back in the original image.
