    I'm a complete beginner to the photography world. This morning I took several photos outside my house of a rising sunset. The images all have bright spots located in random places throughout the image. (Usually towards the bottom) I would describe them as a hot/sun spot which is fairly large in size. Can anyone tell me what these might be. (THere is one on every picture) and how I can get rid of them?

    Please let me know. Thanks!

    since they are fairly large as you say it is probably not dead or stuck pixels. Sounds like lens-flare to me. Especially if the sun was in the upper part of the image ... and the flare somewhere below it.

    Most of the time spots from sun are from reflections inside your lense, when your taking pictures with the sun in them, you will find you have to change angles a little to remove the reflections, Also be careful not to look into the sun thru your lense:hail:

    Hard to make a diagnosis without something to actually look at.
