This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom/Camera Raw: Automatic scratch and dust removal
- I have to work on the dust as one of the final steps, because first I have to fix the exposure and all lights before I see where I have to remove durst and where i is not visible.
- If I later find some issues with the lighting and adjust them in Lightroom, I have to do all the dust removing work in Photoshop again.
Therefore I suggest a new "Effect" in Lightroom which is basically the "Remove Dust&Scratches" filter from Photoshop. It is important that this filter can be combined with masks, because of the resulting blur, I only want to apply it on flat surfaces where the blur is not visible.
