    Anyone else used the "Visualize Spots" check box when using the "Spot Removal" tool in "Lightroom". I thought I was thorough when removing dust spots from my images, click on this today and found loads more (think it's time for a sensor clean).

    Been using Lightroom for years and never used this until now, well worth giving it a go. Its makes your image look like a high pass filter effect in "Photoshop" which makes it very easy to identify spots.

    Used it extensively since it was introduced in version 5.0 ( we are now at v 5.6 )

    Still a good idea to do a normal type of check at say 2:1 as well, as sometimes it could be, say, a nail in a piece of wood or actual dust / dirt on the subject itself which you may want to keep.

    I use it now too, it is particularly good if you want to edit an image in something like Silver Efex Pro as it highlights the tiniest of spots which my eye doesn't always pick up. As Jeff says though you do need to check that it isn't something that should be there!

    Yes, a very useful feature.

    Never heard of it, but I'll give it a look as it sounds useful. That said - I still find the correction of dust spots in LR a hit and miss affair.

    Know what you mean, sometimes I switch from Heal to Clone to see if you get a better result.

    Same here, on all counts.
    I've just looked however and I don't think I'll bother.

    Very useful - although I'm using it a lot less since getting the D600 sorted. I would also recommend magnifying the picture as you can see a lot more than full size
