Mass Removal of Dust Bunnies Using the ‘Lighten’ Blend Mode

Sometimes when you have a lot of sensor dust marks in the sky it can be difficult to find and fix them all with the inpainting brush. Here’s a simple way to eradicate the lot with one simple adjustment, using the Lighten Blend Mode to make it work.

Note: This method can also help to reduce noise and other artefacts to remove any unwanted dark pixels. You can even use the Darken blend in a similar way to remove small light objects.
