[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid Dust and Scratch Removal



The way the software stands now, it should work on any image that has
dirt or dust or scratches.

Since it is a post scan operation, and Polaroid has chosen, at least for
now, not to tie it directly to their product line, you're getting a free
dust and scratch filter that is much more sophisticated than the one
that comes with PS.

I don't see why everyone wouldn't download it, quite honestly.  SInce it
has a stand alone version, you don't even have to own Photoshop, and the
plug in might even work with other programs which accept the PS filter
standard.

I never really had the time to use it with other scanners, but there is
no reason why it wouldn't be great with scanners like the Minoltas.  I
will have to give it a go soon and report back.

It does not rely on any hardware or firmware, and it has a negative and
positive mode.
