How to Remove People, Objects, and Other Unwanted Items from Photos

It is often extremely frustrating when you try to take a photo only to find that people, objects or other unwanted items are in the frame. In some cases you may be able to fix that by cropping them out – but sometimes they tend to be in a location where you can’t crop them out without ruining the photo completely.

With a little bit of photo editing however it is possible to remove these unwanted elements from the photo completely. All that you need is software that will allow you to select and remove them, while ensuring that the rest of the photo remains unaffected. Using the Movavi Photo Editor is one of the best choices as not only is it capable of doing all this but it also is extremely intuitive and user-friendly.

Items from Photos

Knowing how to remove people from photos or any other elements is simple, and just takes a few steps:

  1. Add the photo that you want to edit by clicking on the ‘Browse for Images’ button and selecting it.
  2. Open the ‘Object Removal’ menu and find the ‘Brush’ tool.
  3. With the ‘Brush’ tool, dab the object or element that you want to remove to select it.
  4. Click ‘Start Erasing’ to remove the element.
  5. Save the photo when you’re satisfied with it.

Sometimes you may need to use some other tools to obtain the desired effect. If you have issues selecting the element that you want to remove then you may want to try the ‘Lasso’ or ‘Magic Wand’ tool. On top of that you can also use the ‘Stamp’ tool to deal with any imperfections in the area where you removed the element.

Before you save your photo, go over it to make sure it looks exactly the way you want it to. With the Movavi Photo Editor you have numerous features at your disposal to enhance the image quality, transform the photo, or even stylize it with special filters – so be sure to edit it further if need be.

All the features in the software are just as intuitive as the tools that you used to remove unwanted elements from your photo – so you should have no trouble figuring out how to use them and in a matter of minutes will undoubtedly be able to put them to work realizing your vision.
