Auto sensor dust spot removal

A Lightroom method of quickly finding sensor dust spot (enhanced edge detecting) and batch removal is an essential requirement.

An automatic “discover and batch removal” would be even better.

How I see this working…

ON1 analyses multiple images from a shoot and looks for potential dust spots. They should be in the same place on every image. Then we could OK it to remove them from every image where they appear.

Of course this could happen in a shoot and they not be dust spots so it should flag them on the first image and ask if OK to remove them all, with the option to deselect one or more if they are not true dust spots. Many of us take several shots which are essentially the same or very similar, ON1 would have to ignore these and only check for and count contiguous “spots” on very different images.

Some may disappear part way through and this needs to be considered too, depending upon the counts found.

More dust spots may appear part way through a shoot so the auto search is repeated backwards.

When the location counts change part way through a batch then it would need to flag and we should OK each subset of images in the batch

A more sophisticated approach might be for the photographer to take a shot of a blank white page (usual way: f/22, close focus, AV mode, slow shutter, moving camera etc) at the start or part way through a shoot and flag these in ON1 accordingly. ON1 uses them to better identify dust spots and where to look in the batch or subset of images.
