With PhotoRoom's Retouch tool, you can quickly and easily remove unwanted objects from your photos.

PhotoRoom Retouch feature in use (iPhone)

The following procedure is for iPhone and iPad, but similar steps apply for Android devices.

  1. On the Create page, select the Retouch tool.

  2. Select a photo from your phone or select Camera to take a new photo.

  3. Draw over the object(s) that you want to remove from your photo.

    Note: Use the Brush width slider at the bottom to make the brush thicker or thinner.

    PhotoRoom will remove the object and fill in the background as if the object was never there.

  4. Select Next.

  5. Use the editing tools to make further changes to the image, for example, to change the brightness or add text. PhotoRoom will only save your image if you edit it.

  6. Select the Back icon < to return to the Create page.

You can find your image in Your Content.
