If it were not for rocks, and stray tourists, and telephone poles, taking photos in Hawaii would be a photographers paradise. All of with digital cameras have the same problem. There’s always something in a photo we’d like to get rid of.
Now you can.
Photoshop has a great feature which lets you delete unwanted objects from a photo. If you can’t afford the $700 price tag, or Photoshop’s world renowned complexity, add Snapheal to your Mac instead. This clever little app takes a photo and lets you erase objects in the photo you don’t want in the photo.
Got pimples? Erase them.
Got lines in a photo you don’t want? Erase them.
Snapheal is actually simple to use. Copy or open a photo in Snapheal. Select the size of the eraser. Erase the object you want to remove and click the Erase Modes button.
The app erases the object you don’t want, then analyzes the surrounding area in the photo and filled in where the object was removed.
Snapheal has a clone and stamp tool, a retouch tool, a color adjustment tool, and options to crop and flip. It’s the erase tool you’ll use the most.
Some trial and error is required to get the correct erase size and use the proper eraser mode, but it’s actually fun to use and gives remarkable results.
Photoshop might be better at many things than Snapheal, but this is more fun to use and costs plenty less.
