Deleting specific selections
Each time a selection is made, a selection ring indicates the position in the image and it is recorded and numbered in the Spot Removal tool. To highlight the individual selection, you can either select it directly from the Spot drop-down menu if you know the position or navigate through each selection using the forward/backward> / < buttons in the tool. The selection is highlighted in the Viewer. If you have made multiple selections, however, it is unlikely that you will know what number it is. If you select the circular cursor in the Viewer, the numbered position will be displayed in the Spot field of the tool.
- To delete a selection, either select it from the list in the Spot drop-down menu in the Spot Removal tool or in the Viewer so that it changes from silver-gray to orange. Choose one of the following options:
- Press the backspace/delete key.
- Press the delete button (-) icon in the Spot Removal tool.
- The selection is deleted. If there was a spot or dust particle beneath that selection, it will re-appear.
Deleting all selections at once
