We’ve all more or less faced the same issue. You’re trying to take the picture of a loved one or a postcard worthy photo of a beautiful monument, yet all these other moving ‘objects’ keep coming into your frame. Well you could take a number of photos and then use a PC photo editing application, like Photoshop, to get rid of unwanted people in the photo but that’s hardly very convenient. The solution comes from Scalado, a mobile device imaging specialist. The company has just announced a new software technology called Remove that allows you to remove unwanted objects from images on the fly.
First, you take a shot with your mobile device’s camera, then you select unwanted objects from the captured image by using your device’s touchscreen. The software takes a number of additional shots and using some clever imaging technology, stitches them up on the fly to produce a cleaned-up result. Of course Remove only works with moving objects, i.e. people or other members of the animal kingdom.
