You will see lots of dust especially around my tuxedo area on this photo:
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a10/tchan03/scan0018B.jpg

The dust comes from the scanner (not my actual tuxedo)

I scanned this 4x6 photo on HP scanner, the scanner surface inevitably has some dust.

What features on Adobe ImageReady/Photoshop can i do to remove the dust? Please explain in details if u can.

Thanks
Terence

Other methods could be the healing brush (band-aid) or the clone stamp. With either one, use a small brush size then sample an area close to the spec and then click on the spec. This method will take much longer, but you don't affect the whole image like a filter will.

I would run the dust and scratches filter, as mentioned, at 1 pixel, on a duplicated layer. You can mask off any areas you don't want affected.

The only problem with using one of the filters (like dust and scratches) is that it will also blur the rest of you picture, so afterwards to sharpen it up trying using the unsharp mask filter in photoshop.

The clone tool as suggested before is a good way too.

yes, like matt said, if you've got the filtered image on a seperate layer, you can mask off the areas that you dont want the filter to touch. I personally wouldn't recomend using the filter, and then using the unsharpen mask on top of it... you are likely to produce pixel distortions.

Personally, I always crank the zoom up to between 200-400% and use the clone stamp. Sure, it's tedious and time consuming, but I end up with what I feel are much better results.
