Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
There are a few things to do in order to identify the problem more accurately. First, is it a "spot" or a "line" on the images. Second, is the "swipe" in relatively the same spot on multiple images. Are you using an external flash? In order to rule out the dust problem, you'll need to retreive the manual for your camera, and after removing the lens, follow the intsructions listed to move the mirror inside the camera to it's raised position and open the shutter. Once the mirror is out of the way and the shutter is open, you can inspect the camera's imaging sensor for dust or dirt. Based on your description of your problem though, it sounds as if you may be using an external flash. If you are using an external flash, you need to be certain that the camera does not exceed it's "sync speed". The maximum shutter speed used should be 1/250th of a second with this camera. If you are using a faster shutter speed, the images will be noticably darker on one half of the image. Hope this awas helpful.
