Do you want to take a picture of a person, a fence or something that sneaked in just when you pressed the shoot button? If you have an iPhone we recommend the best editing apps with which remove everything unwanted from any image: in a few steps and automatically.

The latest trend in photo editing is “magic erasers”, a tool that allows you to remove unwanted elements from images. The Google Pixel 6 integrate it as standard, too Brands like Samsung or Xiaomi include a similar feature in their gallery apps. Not only that: in stores there are a multitude of apps that promise to make disappear what is clouding the photo. We choose the best ones for the iPhone.

Touch Retouch

It is one of the first to come up with the idea of ​​magically removing people to objects from photos. It is very easy to use, very powerful and our first recommendation for the task at hand: image editing to automatically extract unwanted elements.

Touch Retouch is a paid app that is very worth including in the library of photo editors: for the 1.99 euros it costs, it offers an immeasurable utility. The application allows you to remove objects and people by painting on the surface to be erased and then let Touch Retouch interpret the scene and cover the gap by cloning the surroundings and “inventing” what was behind the erasure.

The result is not always the best, it is something that happens with any automatic tool. Even so, it is essential for those looking for a excellent object remover: Touch Retouch almost does magic.

Adobe Lightroom

The photo editing app is very powerful and offers a multitude of tools, including “Correction”. With this brush it is possible remove objects, people, or wires from an image: after painting on the screen, Lightroom will take care of applying the clone so that the selection disappears.

Adobe Lightroom is not as efficient as Touch Retouch at removing elements, but it is enough and enough to polish the unwanted from an image. And it includes everything you need to prepare the image for publication on social networks, for example: at no cost and without the need for an Adobe subscription.

Adobe Photoshop Express

The tool is the same as in Lightroom, the one called “Correct”, also the way to apply it, and how it works, are very similar: you have to cover what you want to remove by painting with the brush and Photoshop Express will take care of removing it by applying a clone stamp.

The results are quite good in photos taken outdoors and as long as there is enough space around what you want to remove so that Photoshop Express can clone it by filling in the gap. In addition, it is an excellent general image editor, so it is worth using it before publishing any photos: it is a free app and does not need an Adobe subscription.

Pixelmator

Pixelmator Eraser

One of the best photo editors for macOS that also offers a mobile app. Its power is very high, also the number of tools included is. And, although it is not only valid to erase unwanted elements from an image, Pixelmator achieves this function with enough note.

The function we are looking for is called “Retouch” and is found within the tools (you have to click on the brush icon that appears at the top of the screen). Once pressed on the retouching plaster, just draw on what you want to remove: Pixelmator will clone the surroundings to fill the void.

The retouch processing is at a better level than Adobe’s, but it doesn’t detract from the excellent work that Touch Retouch does. In the event that you already have Pixelmator on your iPhone or iPad, our recommendation is that you also use it to remove unwanted items from photos: does a more than decent job of this assignment.
