Spot coming out on photos

I recently noticed that I have a white spec coming out on my pictures. At first I thought it was my lens so when I swapped out lenses and cleaned them as well the spot remained in the same location. The spot can be faintly seen in live view but when you zoom into the pic the spot is there. My GF dropped my camera like 2 months ago but the camera has worked perfect. Could this be a result of the drop ? or dust ? Let me know what you think and I can start figuring it out step by step.

Check your sensor, there may be a spec of dust on it.

Check your manual on how to manually clean the sensor, remove the lens and set the camera to lock up the mirror then you can have a good look at the sensor and maybe use a puffer to remove any dust you may find.

Blank white wall, take a shot and look for debris. The sky, if it is clear, can also serve. There's also a sensor cleaning mode where your camera will raise the mirror and shutter and you can take a look but sine things are incredibly small and invisible to the naked eye

Sounds more like a hot pixel. If it was dust it would not be a "white spec" but more of a grey fuzzy cloud.

Another possibility is a scratch on the rear element. That can create a white spot in images.

+1.

To check for dust on sensor you can do as said above - using narrow apertures pronounce dust problem better. :-)
