Removing an Object

The process of making a photo look better is often referred to as retouching (while repairing damaged photos is referred to as restoration). Luminar offers a useful tools to make these kind of tasks easier. Let’s explore how the tool works. 

Using the Erase Tool

The Erase tool sis all about removing unwanted objects or details.  You simply click and paint over the unwanted areas.  Luminar then examines the surrounding pixels and generates a new texture based on its awareness of what’s nearby in the photo. The Erase tool also matches the texture, lighting, and shading of the original pixels. 

1. Open an image that has items you’d like to erase and remove from the image.

2. Switch to the Erase Tool by clicking the Tools menu in the top toolbar.

3. When you find an area to Erase, simply click and brush over the unwanted area. 

4. You can adjust the size of the brush with the toolbar at the top of the screen.
5. Click the Erase button to remove the selected areas.
6. When happy with the pixel removal, click the Done button.
