Have you ever brought home the perfect picture from a shoot, only to find that dust on the sensor has wrecked the shot? Don't throw away that image just yet!
Thanks to Adobe Lightroom's Spot Removal tool, dust spots are a simple fix. You can simply grab a good part of the image from another area of the photo and paste it onto the spot. Lightroom's algorithms help determine areas that are the a good match, in an intuitive interface, and blend the images seamlessly.
Dust on your sensor or film scans is practically unavoidable, but you don't have to lose the shoot because of it. This tool is good at retouching minor skin blemishes, too.
Let's learn how.
