If you're seeing tiny bright spots in your photos, you may have a dead or stuck pixel problem with your camera. Our friends at the How-To Geek show us how to fix it.
We've talked about fixing dead or stuck pixels in your LCD screen before, but your photos can get them too, usually because of a problem with your camera.
There are a lot of ways to fix the issue, through both hardware and software. You can:
- Enable the "pixel mapping" feature of your camera, or — if your camera doesn't have one — send it in to a repair facility to get your pixels mapped
- Try the auto cleaning function on your camera (if it has one)
- Shoot in RAW format instead of JPEG
- Use Photoshop's spot healing tool to remove them after the fact (you can even automate this process using How-To Geek's instructions to batch fix old photos)
You may have to try a few of the above solutions to find the one that works for you, but it's worth the effort if you're tired of seeing those bright spots in your photos. Hit the link below for detailed instructions on each solution.
