Removing items from photos can be a really time-consuming process even with professional editing software on a PC. More often than not you’ll need a copy of the industry-standard Adobe Photoshop which isn’t cheap, a vague idea of what you’re doing and your photos stored locally on your machine. Now Windows Phone users can perform this operation on the go, using Smartest Eraser – a free app that can intelligently remove objects and people from mobile snaps.
The process requires you to mark the object you want removed in red and any nearby objects you want preserved in green before the app offers you several different results. To save even more time you can launch the app straight from the Windows Phone photo viewer. Once you’re happy with the object removal you can choose to save it to your photos or share it on Facebook.
The app is completely free and comes with all features unlocked. According to the developer, people won’t be able to tell you’ve performed a removal with the naked eye. Despite this claim, you should probably remember that certain photos will come out looking better than others especially considering this is quite an advanced operation.
- Mark an object you want removed and any you don’t then choose from the results.
- Open the app straight from Picture Viewer and share your touch-up afterwards on Facebook.
- The app is completely free with all features unlocked.
- Works on devices running Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.
