    Hi,

    Well I have an image I took with someone seated, and everything is just perfect...except the persons pants seem to have a lot of lint on them. I did not see this when composing, and I am afraid that even if I tried to get the shot again, I would not be able to get it right a second time. It was a bit complicated.

    I am wondering if there are any tricks to minimize the garish look of dust on black pants in the printing process. I tried using a piece of glass with an area smudged with some vaseline and used this to diffuse/dodge the area. It almost worked, but ended up making it look a bit odd.

    Any advice? I' really hate to have to photoshop it and do an inkjet print. I feel bad for even thinking that.
