Remove Tourists From Photos Easily For Free

Blogging is going to be few and far between people. I am suffering from a pretty good case of writer’s block. I haven’t had to solve any new big problems at work lately with some cool new open source platform, so the projects that often fuel my most popular articles aren’t needed right now, and here we are.

I thought I would share with you something I found though which sounds very cool. It allows you to drag and drop three photos of particular scene and it automagically crops out the stuff you don’t want. Tourists, cars, mother-in-laws, whatever!

It’s called Tourist Remover from Snapmania. From their page:

Remove moving objects such as tourists or passing cars from your photos. Take multiple photos from the same scene and the «Tourist Remover» blends them into a composite photo without any interfering elements.

I found this cool tool from reading a blog article on Practical Hacks. They took the following three pictures:

With those three images, they were able to remove the cars and get a clean image of just the background. Check it out!

Pretty cool right? You could do the same thing in Photoshop, or Gimp but it would take a lot of time to do it. Also, not everyone knows how to use Photoshop that well. This tool is designed for the average user to be simple and intuitive.

Did I mention it’s free too? That’s right, just sign up and you also get 100MB of free storage to save your files, plus you can create web albums and slideshows for your friends. If you need more space, they also have paid plans starting at about $4.90 per month.

Do you use Snapmania? Know of another cool free tool that does this? Let us know in the comments!
