Hi everyone, I have a bunch of photos I had developed at Walgreens, they were then scanned and put on a photo CD. Well the digital photos look like crap, I don't think they had cleaned their scanner before scanning them because there is a bunch of stuff that looks like dust on the photos. I was wondering if there is a way to get rid of those artifacts. I was hoping there was a free, or free trial photo auto editing tool out there that I could use. I tried GimpShop but I'm not 100% sure how to use it and I don't know if it has a auto setting where it would do all the editing for me so I wouldn't have to take hours smudging or blotting out each artifact on the photo. So does anyone know of a free program that could do this for me so i don't have to spend hours doing it myself?

These are real on paper prints ?  The simplest thing to do - and almost certainly the quickest - would be to re-scan them. You must know somebody who has a scanner or an all-in-one printer which includes a scanner if you don't have one yourself. I have done cleaning like this digitally and it is a load of pain and tedium !


Just make sure that the prints are dust-free before you start and save the scanned images to a memory stick for transfer to your own computer.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

We have used Walgreens photo with good results, and they do have a 100% satisfaction guarantee:

I have to agree, cleaning up their mistakes would be an arduous task, let them be responsible for fixing the issue.
