    I actually saw a video “the other day” about this filter, and found it very usefull and easy to use when repairing very old photographs i am scanning for preservation and webpublishing, 🙂

    And go back and mask back in the things it thinks are scratches in digital images

    Great suggestion Bryn! Otherwise you might loose important details like small catch lights etc.
