Why won't the Clone/Heal Tool remove a white spot?

Nov 12, 2012 8:01 PM

After being embarrassed by failing to check the Clone/heal tool to make sure the opacity was set correctly, I am encouraged to ask another question that was not affected by the appropriate correction that made the tool work fine under most circumstances. However, using LR4 (and previously LR 3) )iMac 27 quad) at odd intervals, certain images show up with a single white spot, usually on a blue background, that cannot be removed or cloned with the LR Clone/heal tool. It can be removed with the clone tool in PS but not in LR. I don't know where the spots come from. They sometimes show up in a sequence of 3-4 or just singly. A copy of one is attached here. I don't know if this spot is an aberation in LR or from my cameras. Since it's happened with different cameras, I presume this is some problem with LR. Any comments?

    Does the spot disappear when you do a Reset Image ?

     

    You probably apply a preset upon Import by mistake.

    Looks like an Adjustment Brush Stroke.

    Hit your adjustment brush and see if a pin appears. Select the Pin and Delete.  Does the spot go away? If so, that is the problem. Double check to make sure it isn't part of a series of brush strokes somewhere else on the image.

    As for why it appears, you may be syncing from or have a preset you are applying that includes the brush stroke...
