SRD -  Dust and Scratch Removal

It's beyond the scope of this review to discuss in detail how SRD operates, however, I've included the above screenshot to show the extent of the toolset provided. I'm not normally a great fan of this type of tool, finding that whilst they fix one problem it's usually at the expense of overall image quality. That said and with care SRD does a reasonable albeit slow job of cleaning up  most dust and scratches. I particularly like the ability to create selection masks using the built-in Lasso and Brush tools. Layers are also supported (up to 4). For long scratches and/or fibres we can activate the Longish scratch removal function. However, I should warn that using this function can further increase overall processing time.
