When I use my spot removal tool, a white streak occurs and then it picks some random spot to copy. Any suggestions?
If I'm understanding you correctly, that is the way I understand that the spot removal tool works. The white area you are seeing is what happens on my compute when I brush the area that has the spot. Usually, Lightroom chooses a pretty good region to copy to the brushed area. But occasionally I find that it does choose a rather random and inappropriate spot. When that happens I just move the chosen spot to where I think it should be. If you are experiencing something different than what I'm understanding, please explain more fully.
