Spot on my photos

Hello, this is my first thread. I was wondering how to get rid of a spot from my photos. I've swapped lenses and there's still a spot. 1. How do I get rid of it? and 2. What's the best software/website to edit my photoa to get rid of the spot. The spot is in the middle on the top of the image on multiple photos.

I would suggest there is a spot of dust on your sensor. DONOT TOUCH YOUR SENSOR TO WIPE IT. A blower is the initial recommended remedy.

I would look up Sensor Cleaning both here on this Forum and on the web. Get your information together first and then proceed.

Photoshop or Photoshop Elements Spot Healing Brush tool would make that go away in a heartbeat. Works especially well in scenes just like that one, in which there are plenty of neighboring pixels of the same color to copy.

Just search for Giottos Rocket Air Blower on Amazon , there cheap enough......never touch your sensor with the tip of the blower!
this will give you some idea of how to clean your sensor , its not the best video i have seen so you may wish to search for more ,
and remember to read your camera manual on sensor cleaning before you start.
