Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can reduce dust and scratches in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. We already have a document open.
- 3If we're working with something we scanned, there could be a fingerprint, dust, or scratches on it. The filter that we'll be working with today, the Dust and Scratches Filter, is designed for this sort of situation. Our image isn't the best quality, but it has a lot of different textures in the background.Examine the image.
- 10As we drag it, the numbers next to "Radius" are changing. This blurs the image. It actually changes the radius of the pixels. What it does is finds similarly colored pixels and spreads them, rather than allowing for so many different colors. If we select the radius to be quite large, we lose the detail.Click and drag the slider underneath the word "Radius".
- 14We will click "OK" to add our changes to the canvas. Note that this doesn't save it to the image. We will still have to save normally to make the change permanent. If we change our minds now, we can click "Edit" and step backwards. We have shown you how to do this in another tutorial.Click "OK" or "Cancel" to either accept or reject the changes.
