Door dings

I've had some slight door dings from previous owner and was wondering what's the best approach to deal with them.

Touch up paint or leave as is? Also what is the optimal temperature for storing and applying touch up paint. My garage is about +1 to +3 celsius.

Pic attached.

Thanks

Thanks) I was wondering what are the best conditions for painting. Right now it's quite cold (-10C) and the car sits in a semi-heated garage which is probably
-2 to +4C during winter.

Would it make more sense to wait for summer and do it then?

Any rust potential on these?
