Default How do I get rid of the green light

Hiya! Found another version of this shot... using different settings, etc. But if you look at the boat, there is a green light of sorts... What technique is best for getting rid of it??

Many thanks.

Hi Ned,

The easy way is to either clone over it as gjtoth suggests or use the "makeover" tool or its analog in your editing program. If this is showing up in all of your photos in the exact same place, you may have a "hot" pixel. There are two schools of thought for the later -- wait and see if it goes away -- they sometimes do -- or map out the bad pixels with the mapping function of your K-7. I'd suggest the former, but if it doesn't go away by your next battery recharge, then mapping is probably called for. It's easy and automatic, but I won't use it unless I can be pretty sure that the hot or dead pixel is permanent.

Also, some RAW converters automatically sense and map out hot or dead pixels during the conversion, so this might be another alternative if you shoot RAW. . . just forget about it an let the converter do the work.

Now that I think about it, there are also stand alone programs that can batch eliminate buggy pixels from jpegs, so it's possible to deal with them from a software standpoint regardless of what format you shoot.
