Dirt & Scratches

Before After

Add the effect of damaged negatives with dirt, scratches, stains and smudges. Use the on-image placement control to adjust the location of the marks, varying the effect and ensuring that the texture is placed right where you want it. Choose from Dust and Lint, Scratches, Organic or Eroded textures, and vary the effect by applying the texture in either white or black. Use the Strength slider to adjust the opacity and tone of the texture globally, and use control points to adjust or remove the effect selectively.
