Eraser

By using the top "Cursor Offset" slider, you can adjust the offset between the touched point and the cursor. This feature helps you avoid hiding the editing area with your finger.

You can adjust the cursor size by using the bottom slider in "Manual" or "Repair" mode.

You can change the brightness of the background color by tapping the left-bottom "BgColor" button. This feature is useful for checking whether the image background is erased successfully or not.

Manual Mode

Tap the bottom "Manual" button. You can erase by touch. You can undo or redo by using the right-bottom buttons.

Repair Mode

Tap the bottom "Repair" button. You can repair by touch.

Zoom Mode

Tap the bottom "Zoom" button to zoom and move the image with your two fingers.

Auto Mode

Tap the bottom "Auto" mode to erase pixels with similar color automatically.

The threshold for judging similar color is adjusted with the bottom slide. This feature is useful if the background color is relatively flat. Not all of the unneeded area is erased in this image because the background is not flat. In this case, the next "Extract" mode is more useful.

Extract Mode

Tap the bottom "Extract" button. The top control panel will be shown. This mode is slightly difficult to use. Tap the "Keep" button on the top panel and mark the image area you want to keep with the blue marker by touch. The edge of the area to be kept must not be marked.

Tap the "Remove" button on the top panel and mark the image area you want to remove with the red marker by touch. The edge of the area to be removed must not be marked. The unneeded area of the image will be erased automatically. By trial and error you can use "Unselect", "Zoom", "Undo" and "Redo" buttons on the top control panel.

Tap the top "Zoom" button to zoom and check this image. The area to be kept is also erased. Let's restore it by using the blue marker again.

Now, the area is restored !

Tap one of the bottom buttons other than "Extract" in order to finish the "Extractor Mode".

Tap the "Exit Extractor Mode".

Tap the bottom "Zoom" button and zoom the image with your 2 fingers in order to check the image edge.

The arrowed area is jagged. Let's repair it by using the "Repair Mode".

Tap the bottom "Repair" button and repair the edge by touch.

Tap the top-right "Done" button and go to the "Smooth Edge" screen.
