It’s easy to remove objects or text, but don’t forget to edit out the reflections or shadows of the missing objects.

How natural are the results?

Pincel has been trained on a large dataset of images and it works well on complex scenes. The algorithms understand the context and background of the image and try to blend it perfectly by analyzing the surrounding pixels.

Patterns are no problem to fill

Don’t underestimate AI, it can handle pretty complex scenes, patterns, shapes and structures, which would usually take a lot of time for even skilled artists to edit out.

Complex structures are also handled very well, saving hours of editing.

Why would I need to delete objects from a photo?

There can be several reasons why someone would want to delete objects from a photo:

  1. Aesthetics: Sometimes objects or people in a photo can be distracting for the overall composition. Removing them can improve the visual appeal of the image. For example a lot of tourists can ruin a great photo.

  2. Personal preference: Someone may want to remove objects or people from a photo for personal reasons, such as not wanting to be reminded of a particular event or person.

  3. Marketing purposes: In marketing or advertising, objects or people in a photo may need to be removed to ensure that the focus is solely on the product being promoted. Pincel is also good for cleaning up small particles of dust

  4. Image restoration: Old or damaged photos may require scratches to be removed in order to restore the image to its original condition.

  5. Legal reasons: In some cases, objects or people in a photo may need to be removed for legal reasons, such as in cases of copyright infringement or invasion of privacy.

Overall, the decision to delete objects from a photo ultimately depends on the specific situation and the intended use of the image.

How do I remove objects from iPhone photos?

Pincel also works on mobile devices as an online web application. This means you can access the object removal feature from any device with an internet connection.

There is no native app, so you can use Pincel on iPhone or iPad IOS or on any Android phone or tablet, without needing to download an app. Just visit on any web browser.

We’re not objectifying people… but most of the time, it’s the people who get in the way of a good shot ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is the best image size for good object removal?

Contrary to what you might think, smaller images actually get processed faster and better. This means that a very small image might actually look much cleaner when the object is removed.

For removing objects from larger images (2000px and over) it’s good to know a few tricks:

  • paint more precisely with little overlap;
  • brush many smaller areas compared to 1 large at once;
  • Try resizing the image before remove objects;

Ultimately the results of how clean the object removal will be, depends on the photo itself. AI is good at removing objects, but it’s not perfect yet.

But hey, now it’s your turn to try it out:
