Remove the background of any picture in seconds and save as PNG or JPG! Featuring automated background area removal (magic wand tool), this app is the best in its class. Just touch where you want to remove, and the "Magic Wand" function removes the area of similar color automatically.

No need to open Photoshop. Magic Eraser Background Editor lets you cut out and save transparent images for use in logos, keynote presentations, documents, image editors and much more.

The transparent image can be used with other apps eg. Keynote. Pages, etc. Images can also be used to create your own stickers for apps such as "WhatsApp".

Superimpose your photo cut-out over the top of your own photos for some creative effects.

# Zoom in for fine pixel-level accuracy
# Erase/Restore the area you touched
# Magic Wand - Remove similar color area automatically
# Reverse tool - Reverse removed area
# Save in High Resolution - NO WATERMARK
# Superimpose transparent image on own background

If you are looking for an app that can help with thumbnails or YouTube banners, you have picked the right one! This app is completely amazing to cut out my backgrounds and easy to use. I give this a 5 out of 5!

Best App On The Market by Steve92292
Don't know how I would function without this app. Im a marketer who uses this app on a daily some times over photoshop. Let That Sink In. Big thank you to the developers

I recommend it to everyone by Chbird
Use this app every single day, and I love it. The precision of the tool and the ability to rotate, mask, invert, etc. make it a breeze for creating amazingness. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. My friends always ask how I do custom photo edits so quickly...I tell them about Magic Eraser. LOVE.

Charged for subscription without free trial!

I installed the app, tried it out, didn't like it, so uninstalled it, all on the same day. A few hours after uninstalling it, I was charged for a year’s subscription! Tried to contact Apple about it, but their subscriptions system says there is no charge showing up! Have asked for a refund from Apple and will see what happens. Apparently, subscriptions are charged immediately even with free trials, which is mad! That's like taking a car for a free test drive and being charged the full cost of the car before you get back to the showroom, then having to ask for a refund! Blaming Apple for this, not the developer, although the app page telling us this happens would help.
Got refunded, so put up to 5 stars as the app itself is great. ☺️

Editing And more!

This is so helpful for making gacha movies and edits! When I saw how to edit the apps some people was using was expensive it made me sad but I found this and OML I opened to a good world of creativity only the best apps are for free! Anybody who would like to get this app I HIGHLY recommend getting it it’s super good! Except the adds, but this app is great nothing could beat it, the only bad thing is.... the magic wand is a bit spastic it doesn’t know the separate of light grey and white or a darkish grey and a black even if you can see the black is different for the magic wand but that’s ok! I recommend to not use a dark colour and a black background or a light colour and a light background make sure they aren’t similar but I really do HIGHLY recommend getting this app!

Access to the Files app

Great app can’t fault it, does what it says on the box. I use it to make transparent banners and titles to drop into my video’s etc. One suggestion, it can only access the Photo app to import images and to save, able to access the Files app would be great, would save me a lot of time moving files used in my work flow. Using an image from Photos app dropped into a video as a Picture in Picture is sometimes corrupted appearing with a white background, this does not happen when importing from Files app, I don’t think this is a Magic Eraser issue just some of the weird the things Photos app does. iPad Air 4, iPad OS14.6, iMovie 2.3.2
