Also, they will spot it if there is just one hot pixel or any dust spots at all. I'm amazed at what they see during inspection.


Glenn, do they reject if they detect any cloning done to remove dust spots?

When the inspector specifies the reason for the rejection as dust spots, I am usually happy.  That's because I then know that if I just go back and remove the spot (usually through cloning), then then the image is certain to be accepted when I resubmit it.

If cloning is problematic...let's say in a sky with a gradient of tones...I will use the Content Aware tool within Photoshop to remove the spot as it is less noticeable to my eyes.

I've never had a photo rejected after I've removed the dust spots due to the inspector detecting cloning.
