TouchRetouch HD – iPad App Lets You Easily Remove Unwanted Content from Photos (Screencast Demo)

Share This:


Ever taken the perfect photo of your kiddo with a big smile on their face and then discovered that you also got some random kid in the background picking their nose? On the desktop I’ve used a superb app called Snapheal to remove unwanted content in situations like that.

Now I’ve discovered there’s a great little iPad app that will do this too, thanks to a mention by reader D.R. The app is called TouchRetouch HD and it’s easy to use, has some great tools, and works like a charm.

These are a few of its notable capabilities and features:

* Remove spots from sky or other backgrounds
* Remove wires from your picture
* Remove banners from the buildings
* Remove human-made objects from nature views (bridges, buildings, tents, ships etc.)
* Remove your shadow from self-made picture
* Remove people from the photo
* Remove ghosts and flare
* Remove surface breaks
* Smoothen and retouch the face
* Create funny pictures: for example, remove parachute and leave the guy flying in the sky

* In-app video tutorials
* Unlimited Undo\Redo actions
* Smart image background recovery techniques
* No distortions in final image
* Easy to use interface
* Sending retouched images via e-mail
* Original image resolution

I’ve been using the app for a few days now and finding it an absolute pleasure to work with. Here’s a before and after shot of the first image I tried out with it:



Finally, here’s a quick screencast I did this morning talking a little more about it and giving a demo of the app in action:

Here’s an App Store link for TouchRetouch HD; it’s priced at just $0.99.

  1. Great article and screencast Patrick! TouchRetouch HD is an excellent utility. Thanks for sharing!

    The screencast is awesome. Do you mind sharing what app(s) you used to record and produce it?


    1. Thanks for the kind words. There are two great Mac apps for this. I used Air Server on this one, Reflection is also very good. Nothing is required on the iPad except turning on AirPlay Mirroring and selecting to mirror to your Mac.
