    That's lens flare. You can try and clone it out, but i doubt it will work, it'd be nice if we can see the image.

    it's lens flare. Next time shade the lens from direct sunlight. (hood, hand, card, etc)

    You can fix that pretty easily by cloning and colour replacing.

    It may not be only lens flare. I think that there is evidence of dust or similar on the front of the lens, as well as the ghosts and flare. With the short focal length lenses used for small sensors (4.7 mm in this case) you can have great depth of field, and even things on the front of the lens or filter can be imaged, albeit out of focus. To give yourself the best chance of a clean image in future, keep your lens clean, and be very careful not to scratch it, even lightly.

    Best,
    Helen

    Preventing artifacts like this is the job of a lens hood, but if it is not large enough, you may want to shield it a bit with your hand. If even that is not possible, you have to be aware that you cannot shoot directly into sunlight without getting these things happenine.

    I am not familiar enough with paint shop pro, but I *think* you will not be able to do it properly in that program. You will need Photoshop which is a much more complete, but complex, program.

    To prevent this shoot when the sun is not directly in the view of the lens. I'd suggest shooting at sunset for better colors, or sunrise. A different time of day would get the shadow the house casts out of the picture too.

    It's all about being there at the riht time!
