TouchRetouch allows clearing your photos from undesired objects in an instant. It also comes in handy when dealing with color correction and composition problems.
In a few simple steps, you are able to efficiently eliminate the following elements from your pictures:

• Unwanted objects like debris, garbage cans, street signs, shadows, etc.
• Power lines, telephone wires
• Scratches, surface breaks
• Skin blemishes
• Dust spots
• Photobombers


* Easy-to-use object removal
Get rid of unwanted elements from photos quickly and easily by using the advanced content removal tools the app offers. The highly intellectual algorithm implemented in the app works well for both plain and more complex backgrounds (bokeh, gradient, patterned, etc.).

* Linear objects: Use a single drag
Mark a line by tracing along a section of it — the smart line removal technology that lies in the app will automatically select and remove the whole line.

* Spot-like objects: Use a single click
Clear photos are only a click away. Single-click a blemish that you feel is spoiling your composition and sigh with relief — the flaw is immediately gone.


Use Clone Stamp to remove objects that are in a complex background or close to the edge of other objects. Just copy pixels from one area within your photo and paint with them over another area.


In case there is a distracting element in the background of a picture, you can easily cut off the spoiled part of the photo with the Crop tool.
Make color adjustments to your photo to ensure that your final edited piece looks the way it should.
Turn your Mac into an “unwanted content removal” studio by downloading TouchRetouch now.

If you want to remove unwanted objects, this IS the app!

Wow! I have been looking for a photo editing program that would allow me to EASILY remove unwanted background objects and touch up the background of the removed object so that it appeared photo-realistic. I looked at multiple apps claiming to do that but, thankfully, their free trials proved otherwise. I came across TouchRetouch while looking at possible apps on my iPad, went to the developer’s web site, and found there was a Mac version (my preferred platform for photo editing). I spent about 10 minutes familiarizing myself with the app’s tools and functions. Then, in less than 20 minutes I removed six people in the background of a photo of my wife and I at Stonehenge. I showed the before and after photos to my wife, who was astonished. I wish I could upload the before and after photos so you could see for yourself what a novice easily accomplished.

One hint from a reviewer of the iPad version: use the zoom feature to enlarge the photo details so you can accurately use the brush or lasso to highlight details to remove. If you overshoot an edge, use the eraser to remove as needed. The clone tool is also a very, very clever feature.

If have been looking for a photo editing program to easily remove unwanted objects, look no further. This program is amazing and easy to use. It is more than deserving of my 5-star review and I encourage you to consider it for your photo editing needs.

Does its one purpuse brilliantly

Touch retouch is a go to extension and standalone app to have in your graphic design arsenal. This little tool enable you to erase objects and so much more. It automatically plugs into photos and editing on your phone or computer is seamless. I recently found out you can edit 360 photos with it as well. I use primarily for my real estate photography and it always helps when I have to do a post photo shoot cleanup to get rid of my reflections in mirrors and also to tidy up some rooms of random clutter. This is a life saver and one of my all time favorite apps.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for such a positive and detailed feedback on the app! We appreciate that you described how you personally use the app. That was interesting to learn about your use cases for the app. Happy to know you discovered the 360° feature in the app and hope the app will now be even more helpful for your photo-editing workflows. Keep enjoying the app 🙂

Overall it is very good but there are problems. There are at least two versions which complicates things. I have one on my iPhone and one on my Mac. They are not the same.
In addition, asking for support I find there is ANOTHER one somewhere which they suggested to solv problems.
I find it also confusijng as to where they are saved. There are so many (e.g. F, d, E, etc) but I can't find miy saved work. This is a work in progress but in the end,the support has been great. Thanks.
