ON1 Insider – A Sneak Peek at Visualizing Dust Spots

Have you ever made a print to only see a big dust spot you hadn’t noticed on your screen? Now it’s easy to find all the dust and remove them with the new Visualize Dust option in the retouching tools. It makes the dust jump out so you don’t miss any. The best raw processor and photo editing software, ON1 Photo RAW 2022, is getting an easy way to visualize dust spots in the next free update.

    This will be very, very useful for those of us who still scan film. Great!

    Glad to see this visualizing dust coming to ON1 ! I do have a lot of old slides. And scanned prints. Also, in portraits when the subject has a dark shirt but some dandruff.

    However, I’m still hungry for a broader approach to handling the dust specs than clicking on each spot throughout the image.

    I’d prefer handling all the dust somewhat similar to blurring but smarter, with some thresholds. Then I’d brush on a mask to take care of swaths at a time.

    Great to see this development. Hope that personal done adjustments can be synchronized with other images in the workflow.

    Fantastic on this and other recent upgrades. A few years ago I actually created a custom Dynamic Contrast filter by pushing up all contrast settings and called it Dust Spots. Once my filter made dust spots obvious and I had removed them, I turned off the filter.

    I’m glad you mentioned in the video that ON1’s Visualizing Dust Spots also utilizes Dynamic Contrast. I was curious.

    best people of ON1.
    When I go to sync, I get to see the popup menu with tiny little selection buttons! Is it possible that the text labels themselves become clickable? That works a lot nicer and faster
