Movavi Photo Editor Reviews – How to Remove People from Photo

There are many times when you take photo of a landscape with other strangers in it. Having these strangers in the photo could ruin its quality or run into trouble in particular circumstances. You probably want to use the photo for your business or frame it in a picture frame. There is no need to hire a professional to remove the unwanted people as this is just a small task that can be done with the help of a photo editor like Movavi Photo Editor. Movavi Photo Editor features an object removal tool that is useful in removing people or any other objects that don’t look good in the photo.


The object removal tool in Movavi Photo Editor is a great help for those who have no time to use clone stamp to manually remove people from photos. The software is best for removing people in a photo that has simple background for example ocean, sky, green field and etc. If you have a lot of such photos, it will save you a lot of time and you can easily get all the unwanted people and objects erased in just a few minutes.

When you open Movavi Photo Editor, you will immediately notice that it has a user friendly interface. On top, you can find all the buttons that you need for accessing the main features. To remove people from photos, you must select the Object Removal button. Under this tab, you will see several tools including brush, magic wand, lasso, eraser and clone stamp. The brush tool is for marking the people that you want to remove in the photo.

You can press the brush button and start painting the people that you want to remove. You can use the brush tool to paint more than one people that you would like to remove from the photo. If you accidentally paint the wrong area, you can select the eraser button and erase it away. The last step is to click the Start Erasing button and the unwanted people that you marked just now will all disappear from the photo.

If the photo you open is large, you can click the hand figure icon at the bottom to move it. There is also a zoom in/out slider that allows you to configure the appearance of the picture from 0-100%. If you have a lot of pictures to edit, you can open all of them by simply selecting all of them and dragging them into the work area. You can also use the Browse for Images button to load the images into the software.

If you are erasing just one unwanted person, the entire erasing process should be completed within a second. If you selected multiple persons with the red brush tool, it could take longer for the software to erase them and regenerate the new background to cover them. The progress bar will appear after you click on the Start Erasing button so that you know how much longer until it will finish the erasing process.

What the object removal tool in Movavi Photo Editor does is to cover up the unwanted people with a pattern similar to the background. Sometimes, the photo can look distorted after the software has completed the erasing process. This is probably because the background pixels are too complicated for the software to replicate. You can fix this problem by using the clone stamp tool to manually clone stamp the area to the background pattern that you want. The clone stamp tool in Movavi Photo Editor offers the exact same features as the clone stamp tool in advanced photo editor.

Another advantage is that Movavi Photo Editor is you just simply need to mark your unwanted background with a red brush tool to delete your photo background. After marking the unwanted background, you must use the green brush tool to mark the main subject. Next, you must press the second step button to erase the background. Other than these two features, Movavi Photo Editor also comes with basic features like crop, resize, rotate and add text.

Even with these basic features, they have managed to make it more user-friendly than other basic photo editors. For example, in the crop tool, they provide several crop presets that are useful when you need to crop a photo to a certain dimension. The rotate tool lets you flip vertically and horizontally as well as rotate at any angle. The resize tool allows you to resize the photo by dimension and custom percentage according to your need.
