    It's probably dust on the sensor. Try Photoshop.

    Cleaning it yourself it very very easy. Just use a $2 blower.

    Face it... Dust is a common issue on DSLRs. If you don't learn it yourself, your cam will be in the Nikon service center every week.

    You can try wet cleaning for those really bad dust spots. It's very daunting the first time you do it but when you realise you can probably do a better job than the service centre you'll think its worth it.
    A camera cannot teach you how to see.
