Using the Erase Tool

What is Erasing?

You can use an automatic eraser software to remove items from a photo. It will fill the “erased” area intelligently with colors pulled from the surrounding image data.

Automatic erasing works best on photos with solid backgrounds. If you want to erase something in a picture with a more complex background, try using the Erase tool together with the Clone Stamp and Correction Patch tools.


Step 1 – Open the Remove Objects tab

From the Photo Studio start screen, select the Remove Objects tab in the right-hand panel. Then click “Edit”.

Step 2 – Select the items to remove

Using the selection brush, click on the items to remove. You can use the Brush Size slider to adjust the thickness of the brush. You can also experiment with other selection tools, such as the lasso.
