Easy Photo Editing for Lawyers — Google Pixel’s Magic Eraser Comes to iPhone

By Jim Calloway

Today’s photo editing software can be amazingly powerful. But power creates complexity. For tools like Photoshop, significant training will be required to use it. For the rest of us, a tool like Google’s Magic Eraser is all we need because we normally just want to remove unwanted images or people from photos. Magic Eraser will identify items that one might want to remove. Tap those items to remove them. If it misses something you want to remove, just draw a circle around it with your finger.

Google Photos app for iPhone is a significant development. But it is not free. You can review pictures, but it does not save the edits until you subscribe to a Google One membership, with subscriptions starting at $1.99/month for 100GB of storage. And some Gmail users may have already subscribed for the storage. But if your beach proposal picture has too many swimsuit-clad tourists in the background or no one noticed that distracting dog in the background of the family reunion photos, it is a bargain.

The iPhone just got the Pixel’s Magic Eraser from Tom’s Guide covers all the details, including a nice step-by-step guide on how to use this software.
