Every so often, when I read the weekend paper, I like to do the odd Spot the Difference puzzle. However, did you know you could create your own within a matter of seconds with InPaint? You can now make your travel photo’s a little more fun when showing your friends and family, or even remove those pesky tourists that stand in the way of you when you are trying to take a photo.
See if you can spot the differences in this photo of mine, that I took when travelling Europe.
As you can see, InPaint does an excellent job at removing objects from pictures, and it’s very easy to use. Just mark the objects that you wish to remove from the picture using the tools on the left hand side. Once you are ready, it the button that looks like a play button. In a few seconds to a couple of minutes, the objects will be removed.
InPaint is a bit of a hit-and-miss when trying to remove larger objects – it all depends on the picture. For example, InPaint worked quite well when removing this spider.
You can see a little bit of the resemblance – but if you didn’t see the original photo, you’d unlikely notice it has been InPainted.
Unfortunately, InPaint isn’t free – it costs $19.99. There is a demo version available to try out the software. The only thing is that the software won’t let you save the image. Comparing it with doing the same task in Adobe PhotoShop, InPaint makes it a lot easier.
