3 Easy Ways To Remove Unwanted Objects From Your Photo

We are the most photo-loving generation yet and before awesome photo editing software came along, we were used to having not so perfect photos. We’ve even come to love being photo bombed by our pets and mischievous friends.

Truth be told however, photo bombs aren’t always fun and sometimes, you really want to get rid of that odd thing in your beautifully composed photo shot. Things like a careless finger caught in an otherwise perfect piece of food photography or the stranger captured in your company photo or the weird road sign that’s caught in your epic panoramic nature shot or the date stamp .

Also, you could make your photos far more interesting by removing objects that distract from the focus of the shot, no matter how natural. For instance, wouldn’t it be nice to remove other tourists from that picture you took at at the Eiffel Tower or wouldn’t it be cool to make your kid look like the star ballerina she is by removing her instructor from the picture? Think about it. The possibilities are endless.
