    problem using Dust and Scratches filter in Photoshop CS6

    Steve C2 Helper

      Using the 64-bit extended CS6 version under Win 8/64.  Am I not using the filter correctly, or is this a limitation regarding its use?

       

      I duplicate a layer and apply the filter.  I then add a white mask and invert it to get black.  I change the layer blending mode to either darken or lighten, depending on the requirements at hand.  I use the paint brush to remove the spotting and it works.  However, if I add a new layer and then go back to the Dust and Scratches layer, the paint brush further modify the layer.  I need to create a new layer and start all over again.

       

      I am finding that if I convert the layer for smart filter use, I cannot use the paint brush.  The layer needs to be rasterized, again.

       

      Thanks,

      Steve
