I need help removing the spots in this picture. How do I do that. I only have an older version of Photoshop elements.
I'm not completely sure of the capabilities you have with Elements. But if there is no other image of the gentleman that you can paste in a face image, some cloning labor can work. But don't demand perfection. Here I've copied the opposite side of his face, carefully cloned in some parts of his shirt, beard, and background. His smile is just a clone trick by copying over what part of his mouth is available. Again, not perfect and possibly not accurate. But give it some careful cloning and patience.
It depends really on the background behind the lens flare spots. The three dots in your picture likely will need 3 different methods.
For simple backgrounds like the shirt the "Spot healing tool" will work great.
The spot on the shoes is probably best done with the "Stamp tool". Though a colour correction layer with a mask could work too.
The head will be the most difficult one. The easiest option should be to replace it with a different face.
