How to Clean Sensor Dust in Lightroom

Even if you follow all the guidelines for keeping your sensor free of dust, it is something that will probably happen to you at one time or another, and worse yet, you might not notice it until you are at home, looking at your images on your computer. Thankfully, though, it is not very difficult to take care of it using Lightroom, and this helpful video tutorial will show you how to quickly and easily take care of it.

Coming to you from Micael Widell, this great video tutorial will show you how to get rid of sensor dust using Lightroom. Sensor dust is the kind of thing you don't notice until you are at home and you suddenly have 1,200 photographs with annoying specks on them, but thankfully, it is not particularly hard to fix, and Lightroom has some useful tools for visualizing it so you don't have to squint or zoom in a lot. Still, once you see it, you should take the time to clean your sensor or have a professional do it. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Widell.
