Website review: Magic stroke

Published November 6, 2021

In this era of booming digital technology, we have a lot of options for creating memories, either through writing a journal or taking pictures of places and people around us. We are used to capturing things every now and then.

However, sometimes our beautiful memories are photobombed by someone or something, which could otherwise have been a wonderful click.

I am sure many of you have many pictures in your computer or phone gallery, with something that you wish wasn’t there. If this is the case, www.cleanup.picturescomes to your rescue — a site, which makes your most-loved photos perfect by completely erasing the things that annoy you.

This simple, clutter-free website, is a free web tool to take away all the unnecessary, annoying things from your photos with its magic brush. To start with, open the site, you will see a tutorial picture and below it, a grey area where you can drag and drop the pictures you want to make changes in.

Once you have dropped your picture in this area, a green brush appears.

Press and hold the brush and roughly paint the accessory, person, animal, or whichever thing you want to erase, release the finger once you think you have covered the unwanted area, the tool will do its job. Viola, your good old picture without unnecessary stuff is here! Click download to save the picture.

What really amazed me was the result; I have used several web tools to clean the unwanted details from a photo, but usually found the result smudgy or sometimes had to reedit several times to get the desired result but on I found none such discomfort.

So go ahead and remove the unnecessary details with this open sou­rce tool at
