    I'm kinda bored coming up with this picture sharing subject. But the idea came to me as I saw a single, oddball pixel show up on my LCD screen which also shows on the picture. Fortunately, mine is just a "hot pixel". But with all of us having cameras of the modern variety, pixel failures of all kinds are inevitable. They're not wanted, but what else can you do than to accept it before you can get it repaired? Embrace it for the time being :smile: Hopefully we all have pixel mapping but even that is limited, then you need a new sensor.

    SHOW 'EM!
    (doesn't have to be a nice picture.... given the fact that the whole picture is ruined BY THE ODD BALL PIXEL)

    Oddball pixel is at the upper left corner.

    Either my eyes are shot or my screen resolution is pretty bad but I can't see it.
    You might have to give me coordinates

    Also, in LR or any other PP program you can easily make those disappear. There's really no reason for them to ruin a photo.

    You're sure it's there? I don't see no hot/dead pixel.

    come on people, it's a white dot in a sea of black at the top left. I understand it's not full size, but once you no where to look, it's pretty clear.

    OK. If I expand the picture to nearly full screen (24"), I can see a white smudge in the upper left corner (closer to the side than the top). Interesting that we all don't see it the same way. Browser? OS?

    Edit: Checked Firefox and Chrome: no difference.

    Yea, it appears as a whitish speck at the left top corner. I have my picture on my facebook which downgrades the pics I upload there. I upload it elsewhere so it is its true color red.... At work right now tho.....
