Capture NX quick & dirty dust spot removal

OK, found a new technique, thought sharing it with you guys.
This will work for dust spots on clear skies.

Not sure Nikon engineers meant it to be this way but it does a pretty good job for me.

Start by using the lasso tool to select the area around the spot. You will have to experience a bit but I find it good to have a tight selection, but not too tight:

Now here's the real magic: On the right side bar, under the adjustment menu select "Select Adjustment -> Correct -> Distortion Control"

In the pop-up menu, use the distortion slidebar to remove your dust spot

(in this example it's all the way to the right, experiment to get the correct color)

et voila... no dust!
