How to clean fungus inside a lens

Fungus can grow inside a lens if it has moisture being left there for a long time. However, fungus can easily be killed if they got expose to sunlight. That said, you should use your lens regularly (every week) and rest assure you shouldn't have fungus. Shoot an object a day, keep the fungus away ! hahaha

Unluckily, one of the lens my brother own has fungus in it and I have decided to give it a try to remove it.

I shall warn you DO NOT FOLLOW WHAT I WILL SHOW YOU BELOW. DO NOT ! DO IT AT YOUR OWN RISK !

The problem.
This is how fungus looks like on my brother's Konica Minolta 75-300mm f4.5-5.6

Transfer to Photoshop on Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP) does not work !

I got panic for a while when I cannot transfer to photoshop the photo i wanted to edit using the short cut Alt + P in DPP. I thought I pressed the wrong short cut, and thus i decided to do it the manual way by clicking on Tools -> Transfer to Photoshop. Deng it still fail !

I have been into this situation before, what I did was to make sure Photoshop is my default application to open *.TIF. After that it's all back to normal again. So I decided to blog it and so I'll had it permanently.
