Select the retouch tool and then simply start clicking on the spots you want to fix in the photo. It will automatically patch the selected area for you. You can choose a different size of the selection tool and then fix the spots. See the following video for more details.

In the end, the final image will look something like this. All the spots are gone, and you can save this on your PC. Use the Save option to do that. For now, you can’t directly save it. Just copy-paste it in Paint and then save as PNG/JPG.
