Adjusting Lightroom’s Spot Removal Tool Source Locations

Hi Gang – it’s Tuesday, I’m on vacation in Vegas, but luckily Lightroom Team Member Benjamin Warde stands at the ready with a very cool little tip (in less than 60-seconds, no less).

Thanks, Benjamin! 🙂

That’s right, I’m welcoming a new columnist here to Lightroom Killer Tips, it’s author, podcaster, Photoshop World instructor and Lightroom Guru, Rob Sylvan (whoo hoo!). I know many of you already know Rob from the greater Lightroom community, or his guest posts here on blog, and we’re honored to have him joining us every Wednesday here on the blog, so make sure you stop by tomorrow to catch Rob’s first post, and give him a warm welcome.

Have a great one everybody. 🙂
