How do I remove things I dont want in a picture? Quick Tip In Lightroom – the Spot Removal Tool

This weeks quick tip in Lightroom is all about Spot Removal. 

Not one tip but three. 

This is how I do spot removal. 

Select the Spot Removal Tool. 

Tip 1 – Check the box bottom left “Visualise Spots” 

Tip 2 – In the Navigator panel (top left hand corner), select 1:1, which zooms you into the actual size of the image. 

Tip 3 – Press home, get rid of the spots, then hit Page Down, which will select the next bit of the image. After you have worked on a section, hit page down again, and repeat until you are at the bottom right hand corner of the image.

One more thing. If there is a blemish like a hair, drag the tool over the image and it should deal with it nicely. 

And that is it.
