How to use Pixel Fixer:

Initial set-up

To install Pixel Fixer, simply unzip the file you downloaded into a folder of your choice.
When you run Pixel Fixer for the first time, you should see this options dialog:

Pixel Fixer's options dialog

Here you can associate Pixel Fixer with folders, or raw files, allowing you to start Pixel Fixer via the right-click menu. The file/folder you right-clicked on will be selected when Pixel Fixer starts.

If you have a multi-core or multi-processor system, enabling multi-threaded processing will reduce the time it takes to process your images.

Adding a camera, and finding hot pixels

Before Pixel Fixer can remove hot pixels from your images, it needs to know what kind of camera you have and the coordinates of the pixels that need to be mapped out. This can be done using an automatic process, or you can enter the coordinates manually.

Removing hot pixels from your images

Once you've completed the steps above, removing the hot pixels is very simple. All you need to do is: When the process is complete, if you use a raw converter to generate new JPEG/TIFF files, the hot pixels should be gone.
