    A lot of times when I take photos with my new camera, the flash will create bright spots on peoples foreheads from the combination of light + sweat/grease. Is there an easy way to touch these up with photoshop? I've mostly been using the smudge tool which works okay for smaller spots, but was wondering if theres a better way?

    Also, the red eye tool works well for removing red-eye, but sometimes leaves a white spot in the center of the eye from the flash as well. Is there a good way to fix this?

    Thanks!

    I would use the healing brush tool in PP to fix it, but in the future I would suggest avoiding the use of direct flash if possible. Using natural light or off camera flash bounced off of a wall or something would fix this problem.
