    white specks from chalks

    anyone has any ideas how to remove those or at least make them less conspicuous (possibly using some other program)?

    thank you in advance for any suggestions.

    The chalk tool can be funny that way. It may depend on the grain you're using. Try using a smoother paper or canvas surface with the roughness set lower. (File/New Painting). If all else fails you could try setting the pressure higher for the spots that don't "take" the chalk so well.

    If you are trying to clean up an existing painting, you could use the healing tool in Photoshop (or some other program). Just treat these spots as dust and follow any tutorial on cleaning up dust in photographs.

    so how do you do it in lightroom 2? i see the develop mode and the treatment button, but the latter only affects the hue and i suspect that it has little to do with spot removal.

    could i perhaps send you the image to clean up? i really didn't expect chalks to look that weird. i won't use 'em again, but the image is important to me.
