Keep what matters, remove what doesn’t.
Clutter can overwhelm a photo and distract from the features you want to highlight the most. For a beach photo, that might be the blue and green tones of the waves rather than the people riding them. For an urban shot, that might be the street art in the foreground rather than the litter in the background.
Focus on what you want to highlight most in your images with the new Remove tool. Remove lets you easily edit out unwanted objects from your photos in a few simple taps. Clear photobombers, background clutter, and more for cleaner, beautiful images when you start your 7-day free membership trial.
How to use Remove
Read the instructions below to get started.
Select your image
Select an image from your library, tap the Edit icon, and choose the Remove tool.
Adjust brush size
Determine the Brush size you want to use with the slider. Play with smaller Brush sizes and using a tapping motion, instead of a brushing motion, for more accurate editing. You can also pinch and zoom into different parts of your photo to focus on smaller details.
Undo and Redo edits
While editing your image, make use of the back and forward arrows to compare edits and undo or redo your work. Tap the checkmark when you’re done.
