Lightroom’s spot removal tool with its incorporated advanced healing brush is great for getting rid of spots and some objects, as well as for retouching tasks such as reducing the appearance of wrinkles and softening skin.
Watch the two video tutorials that Adobe asked me to make last year on how to use this tool. In the first video, learn how to get rid of sensor dust or annoying objects in your composition, and learn the difference between healing and cloning. In the second, learn how to use the visualize spots feature so you don’t miss hard-to-see spots, do a quick portrait touch-up, and see how to go to Photoshop for advanced retouching.

Note that you’ll need Lightroom 5, 6 or CC for all of the features demonstrated. If you have Lightroom 2,3, or 4, do still watch the videos, but note you won’t be able to click-and-drag to do non-circular fixes, and you won’t have the Visualize Spots feature.
