How To Remove Unwanted Subjects From Your Photos

Has this ever happened to you? You take many pictures on vacation, an outing or a party, and when you return home you are surprised to see that there are uninvited guests posing in the picture. You can always retake the pictures and hope for the best, but you may not know how to tell the person to get the hell out of the way.

Snapmania, a free (up to 100mb) online photo management service, has a cool feature to undo those unwanted visitors from your photos. The Tourist Remover feature blends similar pictures together, taking out people or vehicles that are not desired.

Simply take a few separate pictures of the same scene and place, and these will be blended (combined), removing passing cars or people. With digital cameras, this is really easy. All we have to do is take more pictures of a scene if the place is crowded. This feature will help us with the rest.

You can check out a short gallery of pictures that have been ‘cleaned’ out of unwanted subjects. Original input pictures could also be found, so you can see both the before and after.
