If you use an interchangeable lens camera, there's a very good chance that you have had to deal with spots on your images before. Even with built-in sensor cleaning technology, it's not uncommon for little specks of dust to wind up on your sensor and sometimes they can be very tricky to spot, pardon the pun, on your images. How can you use Lightroom to help you find the spots you might otherwise miss?

Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect has a neat trick to not only help you find the spots in Lightroom, but also remove them from your photos. Lightroom has a built-in "visualize spot" tool, which has its own slider to help you locate spots in your image. When you find the spots, you can then use the spot removal tool, which is located just under the histogram in the Lightroom "Develop" module.
