    Default How to get rid of light streaks in the middle of the photo?

    Equipment used was a Panasonic GX1 and the Panasonic 20mm lens... A few light streaks appeared at the blue coloured shirt area of my subject. Taken at night under lighted condition, will post the picture later for better understanding.

    Tried lightroom but don't know how to use.. lol..

    using rubber stamp tool in photoshop, try mode "color"

    can try use brush to create adjustment layer with mask also.

    the clone function in lightroom quite retarded... i prefer to use CS (photoshop) to do cloning or spot healing.

    anyway I believe this is reflection from your lens filter?

    Tried the spot healing brush in PS6 but can't reproduce the creases at the sleeve area after removing the light streak.. Hmm

    Try the patch tool. And in CS6, it added content awareness to the tool. Set the Adaptation to Loose or Very Loose to allow CS6 to sample the surrounding area. Do it with small patches at a time.

    Managed to get it done, at least it's not that visible if you view without zooming in to original or expanded size. Thanks all for the tips! Greatly appreciated~

    time to change to a better UV filter, so far tokina and emolux is known to have flare issues.
