DustCleaner is a GIMP plug-in to automatically detect and remove the dust spots in digital images. It was registered under the menu of filter->noise.

Up-to-date binaries and source code can be found here:
Demo can be found here:

Currently, I only build the executable on x86 Linux. If someone has successfully built it on other platform, please let me know, thanks in advance!

My email is, contact me if you get any question about this plug-in.

Enjoy~ :-)

Sorry for that. Well, I compiled it under ubuntu 8.04, with gcc 4.2.4, automake 1.7.9, gimp 2.4.5, libcv-dev 1.0.0-4ubuntu1. I adopted gimp-plugin-template to organize the src, so the whole source package get bigger than 3M and of course it can't be uploaded onto this website. You can use SVN to download latest source from Hope it helps. :)

This plugin is very interesting, but your ELF does not work with mu Gimp 2.6.4 (Ubuntu 8.0.4) - or I cannot find where it is hidden in the menu. I didn't succeed in compiling it either, even after I compiled and installed OpenCV. Maybe I should have used the Ubuntu version? No. I have just tried while I was writing this.

Hi, Francois, actually this plugin has not been tested on any other environments except mine. So I'm sorry that you can't run it. But I think the entry of DustCleaner should be found in the menu: filter->noise, if not, I want to know if you unpack the ELF and put it in the right place of your system. Thanks.

/usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/ ...and it seems to work, now. Maybe I didn't search enough in the "Noise" menu. It removes only black dust. Is it possible to implement a white dust removal? What I'd like is a dust remover for scanned negatives and transparencies. Polaroid Dust & Scratch Removal does it perfectly, but the 8bf plugin does not work with pspi.
