    So now the other question. Is there anything that can be done in printing that can fix some of the images that only have one or two spots?

    Anytime you have darker spots (like you have), it is practical to "spot" on the negative to make the area lighter on the print. Then on the print use spotting dye to camoflage the retouching better.

    But the big spots like you have may prove challenging. Especially if they are in the skies. If they are in bushes or some other area that is easy to camoflage, you have a fighting chance.

    Thanks I will look into that. It isn't like I have anything to lose. What would I use for spotting the negative.

    The classic tool is pencil. Also there are dyes - a famous one is New Coccine. Or opaque. You might try a red watercolor.

    Do the retouching on the base side so you can wipe it off if you make a mistake.
