Any way to remove hot pixels automatically in PP?


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!



Hot pixels galore...
