I recently noticed some weird discolored specks in my images, and I thought it was a lens issue, so I tried cleaning the lens. The specks got a tiny bit smaller, but unfortunately still there.
I took two pictures of a wall (apologies for awful quality), before and after the cleaning.
I'm pretty new to photography, so I didn't find anything dust related. I thought it could be sensor damage, but I've never taken direct images of the sun and I don't take outdoor pictures much either.
How can I fix this? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
