Remove unwanted objects from your pictures

#3 Product of the DayDecember 09, 2017

TouchRemove is an Android app to quickly remove annoying objects from your photos. Mask and remove annoying powerlines, tourists, objects etc. easily.

The algorithm (content-aware fill) automatically fills and paints the masked area.


  • Pros: 

    None really.


    Didn't work.

    Tried this app with a photo and it didn't work at all, it left a mess where the object was. Tried a free alternative on the same photo and it worked to perfection. Uninstalled this one immediately.

  • Pros: 

    It works


    Could use a style guide

    Might help to consult an app designer, but it works impressively.

@joshlewis TouchRetouch has been around for a while for iOS.

@poet But not this particular app, just similar apps, right?
Chris Staines@poet · Lowe's Protection Plans
@joshlewis Correct. Just similar name and, well, purpose.

Some more details for the technical minded people: The used algorithm is based on PatchMatch, one of the best known in-painting-algorithms (a variant of it is also used in Photoshop). I implemented the algorithm in Renderscript, which gives a massive speed boost over plain Java. Contact me if you have any questions.

Erasing a background is useful. But extracting cutouts from images is even more useful. Could you use your algorithm to parse an image into layers?

@lew42dotcom cool idea, I'll have to think about it...
