12. TouchRetouch (iOS, Android)
Google’s new Magic Eraser tool has got plenty of attention since it arrived on the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro phones, but it’s hardly the first app to remove unwanted objects from photos. In fact, TouchRetouch has been around for years, quietly ridding your images of photobombers or unsightly background features. It’s incredibly easy to use: you simply paint over the object you want to remove and click the friendly “Go” button — and just like that, it’s gone.
Admittedly, it’s not always 100% successful, and definitely works better on shots where the unwanted object is on a relatively plain background, but for the most part it does the job, and at just $2 it’s hardly going to break the bank. There’s also a tool for removing straight lines such as wires.
