One of our shooters picked up some information about this at Imaging USA. This thing completely (99.999%) eliminates sensor spots - period. It almost seems like magic. I was wary of what I had heard about this software, then I tried it. It does it's job without losing image clarity, without going through the images manually, without using Lightroom or anything like it. It even cleans spots that overlap the edges of an image onto the background without screwing with the line between them. It just works. It offers the automatic cleaning functionality for at least 20 images and individual image cleaning when you have less than 20.

It has already saved us hours of time between our 2 locations going through several hundred images and we just bought it yesterday.

It is a very neat product and very useful. Keep in mind that you must have enough images in each batch to make it work at optimum efficiency. What it does is to group the photos within a batch by fstop and then it profiles each photo looking for areas that are identical in each photo that have the potential of being dust shadows. Then using this "map" it removes the dust shadow from the image. So the more photos for a given fstop in the batch, the better it works, because the better map it has. It does take a long time to process a batch, but if you just start it up on a computer that you're not using at the moment and walk away, you come back to a folder of cleaned up images. If shooting RAW, it saves out the images in the DNG format. You don't lose the original RAW photo. If you have one of the newer dSLRs that self clean, then you need to be aware that if you shoot some shots, then turn off the camera and it auto self cleans (depends on model), and then you turn the camera back on and shoot more shots, that you have essentially created a new batch because the dust has moved around on the sensor as a result of the "cleaning". So it is better to avoid any "cleaning" during a given session.
