This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom/Camera Raw: Automatic scratch and dust removal

This is part of my long-time push for more AI - automation:

LR can already run a kernal across the image for line/spot detection which leaves the removal process up to me. How about LR auto-removing spots or auto adding the spots which can be individually deleted as needed when the correction doesn't work perfectly?

A slider would be useful to indicate how large or how prominent of a spot to remove. Would also probably have to use some form of object identification so it doesn't remove birds or other objects that aren't spots. Could probably feed the aperture/lens info into the model so it could better understand what a "spot" would be in this image. For example, using a macro at F/40 means the spots would be pinpoints and pretty well defined whereas the same lens used at F/2.8 would be pretty faint, wide spots.
