How to use TouchRetouch to remove objects from photos
Learning how to use TouchRetouch is as simple as possible. There are only a few main tools in the application (lasso, brush, eraser and cloning), so you can try them on the photo and see what comes of it in a couple of minutes.
If you don’t feel like poking at random, the creators have added built-in tutorial, which is divided into five quick lessons. Each instruction explains the main features of the application and clearly shows how to do this or that action.
For example, say you want to remove an extra object (and use the main feature of TouchRetouch). To do this, select the “Object” tool and then select the unnecessary element of the picture.

How to remove objects from photos on Android and iOS
The finished photo can be be saved on a smartphone or in the cloud. You can also send it via Bluetooth or publish in various instant messengers and social networks. To do this, select the image format (JPEG, PNG, TIFF), the size (520 by 1040, 1040 by 2080 or 2080 by 4160) and quality (Medium-70, High-95 or Maximum) in the settings.
For simple but important features such as deleting objects from photos, you will have to pay. The price of the app is about $2 for the Android version and slightly more for iOS. And if in the latter case TouchRetouch has competitors, then there are no alternatives for Android smartphones, so the price looks more than reasonable.
