Any way to remove hot pixels automatically in PP?
9 months ago


Tried some long(ish) exposures in winter (30 sec., F13). Outside temperatures were very low (damn cold...), nevertheless the sensor of my Pentax K7D obviously became warm anyway, so I ended up with hundreds of red, blue and green dots on my pictures taken in jpg format. I am wondering if there is any automatic tool for Mac that does the trick in removing them in one go. I haven't used Lightroom yet, but have read in forums that LR might remove hot pixels automatically after importing (though this might only apply for RAWs).

Do I have to manually clean up the pictures (one of them below: at full size you'll see all the appr. 500 colourful dots at 1:1 full size).

Any advice is welcome!
