There is something about modern technology that gets a little scary. Just look at the special effects in science fiction movies. What’s real and what’s not? It all looks real. Similar technology made its way to your Mac. Now there’s an app that heals blemishes and marks in photos, and it’s so good it also removes unwanted objects in a photo.
Got an annoying light pole sticking up in behind your family in a photo? The Snapheal app can erase it. Not just erase it. Erase it and fill in so there’s no pole remnant.
Snapheal works the same with portrait photos. Got a pimple? Wipe it out. Got an unsightly scar? Wipe and it’s gone.
There are five basic tools in Snapheal. The Erase tool is the one that gets the most acclaim from me. Wipe the pointer over the object you want to remove, and Snapheal deletes the offender from view, but then fills in the empty area so it looks as if nothing was there.
Just to keep itself from being a one-trick pony app, Snapheal also has a Clone and Stamp tool, a Retouch Studio to adjust colors.
There’s also an Image Adjust Toolbox with all the sliders to retouch a photo like a pro. And, of course, you can crop, rotate, flip photos until the cows come home.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If so, what’s a video of picture magic worth in words? This is how Snapheal works on a Mac.
