Using Intelligent Spot Removal

1.On the first photo, perform the spot removal as noted above.

2.Click the  button at the bottom of the adjustment panel.

3.In the Adjustment Copy window, ensure that Spot removal is selected and then select:

Manual if all the spots in the photos are in the same position and were taken with a similar background.

Auto if you want CyberLink PhotoDirector to auto find the correct pixels required to fix each photo. Select this item if the backgrounds in the photos are different from the original photo.

4.Click Copy to close the Adjustment Copy window.

5.Select all of the photos in the photo browser panel that have the similar spots that need removing.

6.Click on the  button at the bottom of the adjustment panel. CyberLink PhotoDirector will duplicate the spot removal in all the selected photos.
