Remove any unwanted objects in your photo

Deleting objects from your image with TouchRetouch is as easy as can be.

Have control over your background

For cases where you want to fix the distorted background or have the object replaced with the background of your choosing, use TouchRetouch’s Clone Stamp tool to do that. Start by selecting the Clone Stamp pane from the top bar. Then move the circle with the plus in the middle to the source position, and start “painting” with your cursor. You can move the source as many time as needed to get the desired result.
