[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid Dust and Scratch Removal



Yes, that's true, I just tried it with a Minolta Dual II scan, and it
picked up on a scratch I could barely even see on the image, and by
manipulating the parameters I was able to remove some high frequency
elements like dust dirt, and even grain/noise.

Gee, don't tell Polaroid ;-)  This thing could be worth money!
