Your pocket app for removing unwanted stuff from photos on the go. It gives your photos a clean look while saving you valuable time.

An accidental object, even though it may look tiny and harmless, can completely ruin the entire composition of a photo and make it worthless. However, it’s not a pain if you have your favorite TouchRetouch at hand.

Here at ADVA Soft, we never stop creating. We are constantly developing new technologies and features to improve TouchRetouch both functionally and visually. The most recent additions, such as the mesh removal feature, new algorithm for edge-aware object removal, and a few more great new things, reflect the needs expressed by you and reveal our appreciation of your loyalty.

Below you'll find more details on what features TouchRetouch has to offer.


• No personal information requests
• No quality and EXIF data loss
• Professional photo edits with ease


The automatic object removal algorithm works best on uniform backgrounds.

What magic can you do with TouchRetouch?

• Remove wires, power lines, and other linear objects
• Eliminate objects like street signs, trash cans, stop lights
• Get rid of meshes in the foreground
• Remove background people
• Erase pimples, skin blemishes, and wrinkles in the most natural way
• Clean up travel photos
• Remove text from Instagram and Snapchat posts
• Restore old photos

How will you create magic in your photos?


The app works great for quick retouches.
Make minor imperfections disappear just by marking them. It takes seconds for the app to remove small details that ruin your photos.

If the task is to erase a line from your pic, mark only a section of the line or just tap it to remove it completely; no need to be precise — the app will find the line! In the manual retouch mode, all lines have control points, thus giving you more control and flexibility over adjusting curved segments.


The app declutters your images in a matter of seconds. That could either be people or other background details you may need to erase. Use automatic content removal with the Brush tool or, when the result is not that perfect, manual retouching with the Clone Stamp tool to repair a photo.


If you think that "getting past the mesh netting" is quite a challenging task, you probably haven’t tried using TouchRetouch yet. The app offers a way to deal with the problem in two simple steps. Select the tool from the main menu and tap the Go button to have the mesh removed just like magic. The whole detection and selection work between these two steps is done by the algorithm; no action is required on your part.


Check out the in-app tutorials and play around a bit with the app to learn how to get the most out of it.
Little effort and experience are needed to become a pro in using TouchRetouch. The interface and layout are clear and intuitive enough to make you feel comfortable the very first time you use it.

Excellent App and extremely good value

I have been looking for what seems like the beginning of time to find a photo eraser app for my iPad that is both affordable and does not come with continuous weekly or monthly fee, This app deserves credit were it is due, It is affordable and sells for a very reasonable price, There are no hidden fees that i can see and no weekly or monthly subscription fees it also does exactly what it says and removes background images without having to put in much effort yourself, if anything this app is better than some of the other that charge fees, all I can say if for less than £4 give it a try you have nothing to lose, and I would like to say thank you to the author for making this app’ it is an amazing app and deserves credit for giving the user a simple but honest affordable app without all the hidden fees for this reason I am giving it a 5 star rating, Thank you.

A great app - and attentive developers

The app was recently given an overhaul and I commented in a review that the upgrade was a retrograde step. The developer got in touch and discussed the things I felt were wrong in an email exchange - and hey presto a few days later a new update was released fixing the problems and making the app even better than before. I hadn’t expected such a helpful or quick response and it became clear to me that the developer team really do care about this app and will continue to make it better. I’m very impressed. The app is very much worth the download, especially if, like me, you’re the type of photographer that needs to remove a lampshade (or other object) from the top of a subject’s head because you got the composition all wrong!

Developer Response ,

We are so sorry to hear you don't like the update. What functionality exactly are you here referring to? What tools are you missing? Please kindly contact us by email – and we'll try to assist you.
///If you mean here you are missing the Quick Repair tools, we want to assure you that we didn't remove them.They are still in the app. Now Brush under Objects can function either as the Quick Brush/Blemish Remover or as the standard Object Removal tool depending on the active retouching mode (AUTO or MAN). If you want to use the Brush tool as the Quick Brush or Blemish Remover, go to the AUTO Retouch mode (tap the AUTO/MAN button in the lower-right corner of the screen to turn on the AUTO mode) and tap any tiny item with it — it will get removed; you could also remove bigger items by selecting them. We have released the 5.0.2 update that provides additional explanatory tips on this change. Please check it out and let us know what you think.

Expensive subscription model

The featured review and other positive reviews clearly talk about this being a one time purchase at a reasonable price like $5 one-time. In reality it lets you load a photo then offers a ‘free trial’. In fact it’s an annual subscription of $15 with first payment starting in a few days time. By digging into the app I was able to cancel the auto renewal so I could try the features for a few days without worry. I was interested in power line removal. For this you tap on each line then tap ‘go’. If you tap more than once, instead of trying to identify the rest of a line, it tracks your fingertip! Most lines were invisibly removable, however one with a cloudy background was converted into a pale streak. This is clearly a powerful and easy to use tool. I’d estimate my usage to be 10 photos per year. $15/year doesn’t make sense to me. With Google offering a free AI retouch app with its phones now, I’d be looking for a more competitive deal.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your honest feedback. We appreciate that you shared your thoughts with us.

Yes, the app used to be a one-time purchase; however, we have recently moved to a subscription model to be able to keep supporting the app and improving it by implementing new AI-based stuff into it.

If you are not planning to use the app often, you could stay on the free plan. It gives access to all the app features but has a single restriction – only one photo export per day is allowed.

In addition to the Retouch Free plan, we are offering the Retouch Plus plan. To get more information about it and the benefits you may enjoy, please contact us by email.
