How many times did you take a picture from your iPhone or iPad and found something/someone unwanted in the photo? Well, the answer must be leaning towards positivity. Now think of a solution that lets you remove that unwanted stuff from the picture with a few finger strokes, instead of you having to take a new picture altogether. Well, there’s an app for that, finally! The app is called TouchRetouch, having a free version featuring ads and an ad-free version costing only $0.99. The story doesn’t end here as this app lets you edit any image from your gallery, all with the help of your finger tip, as shown in the options screen of the app, below.
Coming to how the app exactly works: let’s have a look at the screenshot below; you can use the lasso tool, the brush or the rubber tool, to mark the unwanted items/objects from the picture and hit Go!
For newbies, the app features in-app tutorials for free, that make you learn how to use the app to perfection. As per the experience, the app does not affect the quality of the final edited image, as compared to the original image that had the unwanted objects, which is a big plus! Also, TouchRetouch lets you use the undo/redo option as many times as you want. Finger-move hinting is another plus to the utility and since our social sharing habits are getting a leap day by day, the app supports sharing of the edited image on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picasa etc.
How the app recovers the background from the image onto the place where the unwanted object was, contributes to the app’s most powerful feature! TouchRetouch also lets you compare the original photo and the edited photo on a 1 is to 1 ratio. The app is 9.6 MB in size and has multi-language support for English, Chinese, French, German, Spanish etc. Start removing the unwanted stuff from your photos using TouchRetouch’s lasso! The app can be grabbed from the iTunes App Store at this link. Thanks to AdvaSoft for such an easy, yet useful app!
