One of the problems with restoring old images is removing specks from the scan. Dave shows you how.

    I was watching the video Removing Dust from Photos. I was wondering if there was a video to show you how to do the surprise at the end of the video? That is one thing I was hoping to find out how to do.

    I am restoring old photos, some of which are in worse shape that the sample that Dave Cross uses in this video. I watched the video some time ago and remembered it. Today when I watched it again, the video does not have any sound. As instructed I down loaded the video and then tried playing it in QuickTime (latest version). Still no sound. Is there any way to correct this?
    Many thanks,
    Michael Wall

      Hi Michael-
      I just gave it a try, and it played fine on my Macbook Pro…is your machine a mac or windows? One thing you could try is download another player other than quicktime, such as VLC( and see if that will give you the audio.

      Other than making sure QT is updated, I’m not sure what might be causing the problem, especially since I couldn’t replicate that…
