Windows Phone App of the Week: Smartest Eraser is the Bane of Photobombers Everywhere

Windows Phone users can finally strike back at photobombers out to wreck their party photos with Smartest Eraser. Using the app, you can trace objects or people to be erased from pictures, while also tracing people or objects that you want to preserve. Once that’s done, press a button, and you’ll get a new picture that omits what you want to erase.

Do be careful about using the app, though, and use the preserve feature. The app isn’t a predictive fill-in tool – instead, the entire outlined space is erased, and the photo is squeezed together. So, if you erase one person in a row of five people, there won’t be a strange blank spot where the person got erased – it’ll look like four people standing next to each other. The sample photos don’t look stretched or distorted, but you can definitely tell that some background detail has also been erased along with the object designated for photo-termination. The extent to which this happens depends on what mode you use – usual, cropped, or stretched.

Smartest Eraser is available now on the Windows Phone Marketplace for free.
