Crtreviews - AWESOME!
don’t let the fact this app isn’t free turn you away because it’s worth it. i was skeptical how well it would work on my ipad/iphone and it’s amazing. keep in mind it’s not professional desktop software so sometimes it can’t fix everything. also i’m very privacy concerned and have been really disappointed in how there’s like no photo apps for this feature that don’t collect/steal data or hide their true policies on their developers website only so this app is perfect for me. also apple pencil + ipad on this app is a game changer.
for devs: possible issue with the export quality; i notice a slight clarity difference for the whole image even though i only cropped a little but maybe that’s why (photo taken with iphone 12 pro max and made two edits to compare, 1 on ipad air 4 & 1 on the same iphone both on highest quality jpg export setting) also it would be cool if you guys could make a face editing app since you already have a blemish feature in this but i mean something like perf ect365 and face tne , i used to use them until i saw their update privacy policies and is the only other editing app i’m looking for that doesn’t data collect.
Fkrkjivfocifktj - Been using this for years and nothing comes close to this.
I’m finally seeing this application get the recognition it deserves. It is one of a kind and you simply do not see the features it offers in any other application. offering these kind of tools especially with being as easy as this app makes it. To do this only a couple years ago you would need a desktop pc with very expensive photoshop and a lot of time to spend editing it. But not with retouch. You can do in seconds what takes professional hours you
How many times have you wanted to post something to Social media or share a photo via iMessage but when you look at the picture you see how messy your house is, or you happen not to have any underwear on and the photo you took has a mirror in it. Uh oh. Well this application is here to the rescue. I count how many times this app has allowed me to share pictures I otherwise wouldn’t ever be able to share. ITT
Coospa - What I think about the touchretouch app
I like how I can take pictures in whatever background I want, knowing that I have an app that’s going to take off anything I don’t want there. I like how I don’t need to worry about a perfect background! I could be behind a cute wall but there could be a bunch of trash on the floor but who cares because I could just go back and remove whatever I don’t want there and just keep my cute wall! Other than object removal, the app has so many other editing features and tools you can use to PERFECTIFY your picture!! (I don’t know if that’s a word or not but I’m gonna use it anyways!) Mt personal favorite feature would definitely be the object removal, because I can take pics wherever I want, and later go remove objects and add other details as well! With all that being said, I definitely recommend the touchretouch app because it can do so many different things to make your picture even more beautiful than it already is, it’s also super affordable for what it is and I’m pretty sure a lot of people would appreciate that! You should definitely look into getting this app!!
Justinetobi - Wow! Just wow!
Just bought it out of curiosity since it is number 2 in top paid apps and it is just $2. Don’t even need it. Tested it in a couple of my pictures. And my oh my, it works so wonderfully! First photo was just an ordinary setting, tried to remove a plastic bag laying in the ground beside me. Works perfectly 👌 2nd photo,
which I really thought won’t work, it’s me in a pool then there’s a couple behind me, tried to remove them, what makes it difficult is that half of their body.. is of course submerged in the water. I can easily highlight the upper part of their bodies, the difficult part is the lower part since it is refracted by the water as well and I don’t know how will the app differentiate me highlighting the body and not the water since they are overlapping. But my oh my. It still took care of business. It was edited to a perfection. That made me truly realized this app is totally worth it. 5 stars! ⭐️
Carebear Happy - Love it!
I’ve always wanted an app like this to edit my pics when there things in the way. I could be wrong but as far as I know no other editing app can do the things this one can do. It’s so worth the money to buy this. Love being able to get the little or big things that may make or break a great pic. To be able to totally eliminate lines and/or objects on an already great picture is awesome. There is several very awesome things this app can do for a pic. The main complaint I have is the instructions could be just a little bit bette. I still think it’s somewhat confusing as to how some of the functions actually work. But mainly I’m not able to see what the options are. They are a tad to small. Definitely not a deal breaker but just wanted to put that in my review. Otherwise it’s a very useful, cool app and totally recommend it.
Don Wyatt - A Must Have For Everyone
I have used this app for a long time and have been amazed at what I can do with it. If you take a bit to learn what happens when you try certain things, then take your time when doing an edit, you can get some pretty incredible results. I’ve learned that object removal on a complex background can be most difficult, but that is the same on expensive products.
Wish List: I would love Apple Pencil support on the iPad version for more precise selections and would purchase a new version to get it. The ability to edit in layers would also be incredible and worth more money. Finally, I would also love to copy and paste an area in addition to using the cloning tool to make some edits easier.
Kudos the the developers!
CBP at jfk - Super useful
Too many times you purchase an app expecting one thing and you get something completely different. Usually what you thought was going to be great is really just a useless pile of junk. Too many times every button you push is a new money grab. That is not this app! This app works much better than expected and the results are incredible. The only serious flaw is that it is so much fun you can’t put it down. It is super addictive and the more time you spend the better the results you achieve. As someone who NEVER pays for apps it took a lot to convince me to pull the trigger and buy this app. About 10 mins after using it I ending up feeling like I paid too little for what I got. I can’t understand how it does not have 5 stars!!!!
Stoshlee - Simple and very effective.
I am an experienced amateur photographer, and usually use Lightroom for all my post processing. This was recommended to me by a fellow photographer, so I thought I'd give it a try. It really is impressive. With very little effort I can eliminate unwanted objects with a simple swipe. Power lines that have previously been a chore to remove, can now effectively be eliminated with a single operation ... just mark the offending line and it disappears. In most cases, but not all, there are no artifacts left that I can see.
The finished work can be saved as a copy, which is very important to me. This is a really good product, and a bargain for its cheap price. I highly recommend it. BTW, the current version is 100% stable on my iPad Pro 2020.
Vintar - This Update Is Not So Hot
Sorry, I know you guys think you really improved this app, but I used this almost every day, and the performance now is so disappointing. The previous quick fix option is gone and now we have only “object,” but I can’t perform simple fixes. Things I used to remove immediately with one try are now no longer easy to change at all, the program is somehow too sensitive, too “smart,” bringing in colors and textures from all over the picture when I simply want to erase something. I can’t stress enough how much more difficult it is to use this app. What used to be one quick erasure now is a struggle, and I have to keep trying again and again to just get it to erase something without replacing it with bits and pieces of other objects. I mean, it’s shocking to me how much less effective this is. Unless things change I will have to find another app.
PA 100 - Love This App!
My son came home from university to put on a business suit for me to take pictures for his business profile. We took the pictures and he left to go back to school. An hour after he left was when I looked at the photos and noticed he hadn’t cleaned the lint off his suit first. There were three small hairs and several pieces of lint clearly visible in every picture. With this app, it only took a few seconds on each picture to completely remove every blemish. It may seem like a small thing, but the photos were not useable as they were and there was no time for him to come back home for a redo. SO glad I have this app, it saved the day!
Kokleilze - Disappointed at first, but I figured out a solution
I thought this was great until I noticed photos I had fixed last night had the same glitch today as they did before. The unwanted objects were only temporarily removed. I thought this was fixed when I read the version explanation.
You can’t go from one photo to another without having to backtrack and go to the home screen and look at albums again. More time consuming!
However, I discovered that I could use this app while on edit for iPad photos. (I pressed the three little dots at the right top of the screen to access this app ). I could remove the blemishes, then save the edited photo. It was easier to scroll from one photo to another too. This made the app more useful and faster to use.
NadiaKnightly - Where’d it go?
A must have for every photographer, professional, creative, or any ole regular Joe-Schmo who shares the pictures they take on their phone! Retouch is an amazing tool, good enough for professionals but simple enough for everyone. 💯% worth the 💵! Best part of all. . . NO SUBSCRIPTIONS! Pay once and it’s yours, intact with all the features you will ever need to erase unwanted objects in your photos. Draw a line to remove those unsightly power lines in your beautiful! Brush over those sneaky photo bombers that pop into all your special moments from seemingly nowhere! Or lasso unwanted blurs of who knows what! All easily deleted from your photos. . . as if they were never there! Where’d they go?
QAPete - Still Best In Class
UPDATE: after reviewing this app years ago, it’s only right that I tell you that it is every bit as magical today as it was then. The addition of line and segment removals simply cements it as a must-have app for anyone who is serious about making their scans/photos look as good as they possibly can be. I still marvel at how I can do this on a smartphone!
TouchRetouch only does a few things. It removes objects, clones, and repairs. The thing is, it does them really, really well. I would be lost without this app, which has repaired/ fixed MANY damaged old photos, some which I never would have thought were repairable. If you deal with scanned photos, it’s absolutely essential!
TheBleuWolf - Simple, useful, non-intrusive. 5/5 bananas.
Heres some bananas for your effort
Zanesworld1 - Not real impressed
First- after I PAID for this app, I came across an app with the same name fir free . Idk if it is in fact the same, but it would have at least been nice to see it first. Second, it seams the tools are a little primitive - they aren’t as good as the old ‘photoshop fix’ tools and the tutorials on tool functionality read more like ‘hacks’ than instructions I.e. it suggest to just ‘mirror’ half a bridge obstructed by objects. Personally, I don’t find value in creating fake pictures and don’t Appreciate that answer as a solution. With all that said, I’m an optimist- so I will continue to play around with the app (at least because I bought it already) and think I will eventually find its advantages . When and if I do, I will update this review and list my findings.
Arg245 - Downsizes images to below 18 Mpix
Update Nov 18, 2020. The limit on the saved resolution has been resolved. Now works great, and with that I can now give it 5 stars. The app works great, and does an accurate job of removing objects, especially lines.
Initial review: The app works great, but I can’t understand why they would limit the resolution of an original, larger than 18 mpix image. And it does so upon opening the image, and no further warning is given. If you have a fast device, you may even miss the warning. I purchased the app outright, so there doesn’t appear to be any kind of in app purchase to remove the limit. It is simply limited by design. For that, two stars!
Skidoctor - Back to one of my most used apps
the previous update seemed to have broken all my links to prior photos as well as make the tools disappear. when i opened the app it appeared nothing was working. i was in a hurry to clean up a photo and the radical change to the interface left me dead in the water. since updating the app the needed functionality is back and this is one of my most regularly used apps for cleaning up photos. for some reason i cannot change my prior negative review so i am posting this update. please keep the user interface simple and straightforward!
M3bella - Exactly what I needed!
This app does exactly what I need! Just highlight the area and POOF! Gone! I was even able to remove a large dumpster in a parking lot that was ruining a cloud/landscape photo! Also, the line removal tool saves so much time when getting rid of power lines! Just select a tiny portion of the line and the entire line disappears!
I’ve tried other photo editing apps that offer object removal capabilities but none come close to THIS app. The only thing I wish it had was a “fit to screen” button. When zoomed in to highlight, it’d be nice to press 1 button and so photo would go back to zoom out and fill the screen again.
Somone You Dont Need To Know - AWESOME!!!
Hi, so recently people have been getting this app and I wanted it too. I looked it up and it was $1.99 and I didn’t want to buy it because my parents never buy me apps. I downloaded the free one and it didn’t work as well. So today I asked my mom if I could get this and she said yes. So now I have the app and it’s awesome. It totally gets rid of whatever. Sometimes it can look weird if you erase something to close to something else but it works if you’re careful. If you’re thinking about buying this app, you should. I’m not saying that you should buy it and use your money but only if you want to. :) bye!
Schrocker - 100% Un-usable. Fraud. Paid for and received an app that does not work.
When the app launches it ONLY allows the ability to use tutorials. What good is learning how to use an app that won’t allow you to use it as instructed? A fatal error occurs when launching this app. A window pops up which says “enable access your photos by going to Settings > Privacy. Simple enough, right? Yet when following the instructions per screen, and arriving at the privacy section for Photos, the IOS instructs “the apps wanting access to photos will appear here” and the screen is empty. 👀🤷🏼♀️ Essentially, there is no work around to this error. So I’ve paid money to people who developed a way to take money from me and provide nothing in return. 100% useless app in addition to being a waste of my precious time to tell others so they won’t be taken advantage of like I was.
The Fire Horse - PFM!
This one deserves your attention! I’ve used photoshop from the days it fit on a floppy disk. I never thought I’d see an automated tool that I would trust with my retouching.
This thing is just amazing. It has some built in magic to determine how to fill an area. It does in seconds what used to take hours manually, and the results don’t exhibit any obvious repeat.
It doesn’t always get it right the first time, maybe it picks up too much background, or leaves some leftover pieces, but it is so fast you can just undo and try again with a slightly different selection or brush size. I’ve noticed that small differences in the original selection can produce wildly different results.
I wish we could post before and after photos here. It has saved a few vacation photos that had a finger partially blocking the lens. I wasn’t expecting much when I first tried it, then almost fell over, “where did it get all that replacement sky, with clouds even?!”
Pure F___ing Magic
SouthernScooter - Best Version Yet
I was dubious about this app as I didn't much like the idea of messing with my pictures especially as I am clumsy. That was about three years ago...
I think I'm into the third update of Touch Retouch and they keep improving it.
It's easy - really - and unobtrusive and it encourages me to take risks with my photo compositions. For instance if there is an obtrusive sign or wire I just don't care. I know how to get rid of it in seconds.
The latest version makes everything easier and better integrated into your photo files than previously.
Use with confidence. Can't recommend this app enough
Antney0615 - Fantastic and FAST!
I was skeptical about the reviews because it isn't difficult to mass produce positive comments to make it seem like everyone in the entire world (and Canada) loves something. Sadly, this is true for so many things anymore but I didn't find that here. I am not someone who writes a lot of reviews because I don't find very many things that really live up to all of the hype of the "FakeBook" crowd.
TouchRetouch IS an amazingly powerful, smart, indispensable and FAST photo enhancement suite of tools that you will be using almost as often as your camera itself. This is money well spent.
Adumb W. - It’s really good
I use it for editing out little dumb things, like a black spec on a white shirt, or I used to take out a billboard on a picture of my little brother, but what impressed me most of all, and what inspired me to write this review, was when I jokingly took a picture of my stitches (recent knee surgery) and tried to edit it out. It must be using some kind of crazy ai or machine learning, because it’s really good. I’d recommend it, I bought it for fun when I had a couple dollars left in my account, and it’s turned out to be really useful.
Dcdrew38 - Horrible editing tool
I was hoping, because if the advertisement, that this app would be better than Adobe Photoshop. Nope! When I use a single touch to remove an object, even the smallest brush, other pieces of the photo will crowd the now empty space! It’s like the source is configured to pull from any random object and it cannot overlay the background behind the image doesn’t have a clone tool, the crosshairs guideline is seriously misjudging the accuracy, and it’s just a bad app all together. I wouldn’t pay the $1.99 for it. Photoshop is better because I only pay $9.99 a month for the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography bundle, and I get Lightroom, Photoshop Express, Fix, and Mix, plus 1TB of storage! I would highly recommend Adobe software over this. Adobe has better tools, higher accuracy, and 24/7 online support. Haha
MTguy23 - An Essential Tool
If you are going to use your iPhone for the serious photography that is capable of then add this app immediately. The ability to remove those power lines that seem to jump into every picture easily and perfectly is worth the price. But there is so much more that it will do. Make sure to follow through all the tutorials. I don’t like to edit my pictures heavily, but for my need to quickly remove the odd piece of debris from civilization there is no better tool for quality, ease of use, and time spent editing.
LilKittyMeow - Works like magic💯
I was honestly stunned by how well this app works. Very simple and easy to navigate- you have the option of tutorials but I jumped in without watching any and found it incredibly self-explanatory. Thanks to the devs for making this very useful app and thanks even more for making it a one time payment instead of a subscription! I hardly ever write reviews but I figured I kinda owed it to them for that one. Anyway, I am definitely happy with this $2 well spent and would certainly recommend it to anyone interested.
- Thanks again❣️
Susan1581 - Always a supporter
I love this app. I found it back in I think 2018 and was moved to write a review I guess was lost or something, but I promise this is true: I have never before it or since found an iPhone application that made my jaw drop physically in wonder. It was like real magic in that moment to me. It delivered exactly what it promised and more and that was true childlike delight. I’ll never forget it. I am praying for the developers in Ukraine and for all of it like most are; and you will always have my support and gratitude.
JungleNut - Unbelievably Great and Easy to use
I thought I had reviewed this app before however it looks as though I have not so here goes.....this app is so good at what it does AND so easy to use it will blow you away. I take people out of my beach shots all the time with this in seconds not minutes. You cannot tell where you remove things and if you can just do it again. On the second pass for your spot it will disappear. I just cannot say enough good things about this app. Use it all the time.
Fwfire - Look no further!
TouchRetouch is a real treasure find amongst a sea of other “free” editing apps that end up requiring subscriptions or in-app purchases to make them usable.
TouchRetouch is reasonably priced, has a fast learning curve, and does a great job at what it’s designed do.....removing unwanted objects from your photos. Photo bombers in the background? No problem, wipe them out in literally seconds and you’ll never even know they were there!
Kudos to the developer(s) on a great, user-friendly design and also for not being greedy on the price point.
Chelly Cheese - BUY THIS APP!! Totally worth it!!!
I NEVER buy apps! I repeat- I NEVER buy apps! I was like another reviewer and assumed there’s no way this could work... I wish I could show you the AMAZING photos I have achieved with this app! I can now take photos and just know I’ll remove something out of it, instead of just not taking the photo I wanted. Sometimes you have to retouch something you’ve removed to make the photo to your liking but I have not regret this purchase one time & even have friends who have bought it after seeing why I can do with it!
Y2KRetouch - Great app
Love this app. Makes correcting pictures soo easy. The one thing i hope they would improve is the “Clone” feature. It would be great if the selection that is chosen for cloning would not move once the user starts the process. As it is now, I select the place i want to be cloned. Then I go to the place that I want to apply the clone to. But once I start moving the brush, the clone section moves as well. Would be good if it was fixed. Otherwise the app is wonderful. Highly recommend it to anyone who takes pictures.
Awkward 4 Every 1 - Works beautifully!
Wall sockets? Gone. Ugly doorknobs? Gone. Porta-potty ruining an otherwise great shot? Gone. Very easily mind you. This isn’t just a “blemish remover” kind of deal, but rather a really effective object remover, and not an iffy one either. Finished image edits are actually really impressive quality. Edits where objects once were are, say, 99% unnoticeable. It’s very user friendly and quick to use as well. This app is phenomenal and will make the shots I take 1) Look better and 2) Much less time consuming to edit. Definitely worth the download! Thank you!
Funzies82 - Worth the small fee!
For the couple bucks that I paid for this app, it is MORE than worth it. I’m only just beginning to play with it but it has already saved several photos of my kids that I’ll now get to cherish forever (without the weird random man in the background, or the vacuum we forgot to put away, or the ugly road cone at the park, etc etc). Very easy to use right off the bat and I’m sure the more I work with it the more impressed I’ll be. None of my other photo apps work this precisely or this easily. Thumbs up!
Remy L - Seriously impressive!
Wanted to remove a bunch of overlay text from a screenshot of a video for a friend. Tried a few free apps with really bad results. Figured it might just be too complex since even if I did it by hand in photoshop, it wouldn’t be perfect. But decided this app was cheap enough to try out and boy was I blown away by the results.
Pic came out perfect and it was super fast, easy to export, easy to resize / change format, etc. i RARELY leave app reviews but this one was too impressive not to.
CottonCandyCrumble - *WAS* Skeptical of Positive Reviews
I’m super skeptical. Whenever I see sooooo many 5 star reviews, I automatically think: FAKE REVIEWS. Y’know, the app just seemed too good to be true. I love taking photos with my phone. I’d get super frustrated when I couldn’t edit them correctly or when I did, that it took far too long to get from point A to point B. So, I took a chance & spent the $1.99. I’M SO HAPPY I DID!!!! After using the app for about 5-10 minutes, I was able to easily beautify my photos. GET. THIS. APP. !!!!!! You won’t regret spending the money ;-).
UnionNJ - Fun and easy to use!
I am super happy with this app. In the past, I had tried using other photo-retouching apps and they made my pictures look smudgy. A photography blog I read recommended this app, and that was excellent advice!
I’m astonished by how flawless my retouching looks using this app. I deleted the other apps and use this one exclusively now. The tutorial on the app was easy to understand and taught me all I needed to know to use the tools smoothly.
Thank you, developers! You have made my Instagram look awesome! :)
Username 04 - Wish I could zoom in more and tilt the image
This is probably the best editing software I’ve used on IOS. I didn’t mind paying for it at all, but please for the love of god, please let me zoom in more. 1600% isn’t enough. I need at least 5000% for some of the stuff I’m working on. Plus I can’t tilt the image. Other than that, the ai is pretty good, wish it would blend things together a bit better instead of such sharp lines sometimes. Anyway, obviously could be better but for like 2$? Not bad at all. Keep up the good work ❤️
BewNek - Amazing App
‘Surprised I’ve not yet written a review. ‘Been using TouchRetouch for a month or so and couldn’t be happier. This is the kind of app you don’t need often but when there’s a need to remove an unwanted defect in a photo or a small distraction Retouch does an amazing job. Really. I find it is easier and perhaps more effective to do something like remove a small lens flare artifact right on the phone with Retouch rather than work with the image on the desktop. Usage is very straightforward and the results are excellent.
Natemm18 - DOES NOT WORK!
DO NOT GET THIS APP. It doesn’t make photos look normal when objects are removed. It doesn’t even fit in with background or objects near/behind. For example ( when stuck is removed from grass it will not make it look like grass. When stick is removed from grass it would be a weird green that does not take grass color or shape. It would look smooth and ruin the photo.) in some cases this app does work but rarely it ever does. I would recommend not getting this app. It would be a waste of money. Even though it isn’t that much money don’t get it. You might be wondering if this is a computer person but it’s not it is a real person trying to help you save money before you waste it on a app that doesn’t even work!
Kriss776655 - Scam??
Hi so I had downloaded the app since it’s been popular lately to edit photos, but what I had failed to see and what they failed to show me was the fact that is had cost $1.99. I honestly couldn’t care for the money, but the fact that it didn’t show on my screen and me thinking it was free was an issue. Plus when I used the app immediately deleted it because it did not reach expectations. You’ve been warned of a possible scam.
Maderoni98 - Fantastic!
I never buy apps and I never write reviews but this app is just too great. Easy to use and works really well. One note, If you have a cluster of things in the background you’re trying to remove (like a group of people for example) it can look a little distorted. You will have to play around with it to make the photo look right. But for smaller items a single person, like light poles, power lines, etc. it is fantastic. Must have for any photography lover!
Frodo19v - You don’t even know you need it
I never write reviews. Like, never. As many others, I bought this app even though I didn’t think I needed it. Why? No subscription. A fixed price for the app. This pricing model, versus the insanely inflated subscription model, made the purchase easy. You know what? I was wrong. I need this puppy. Moreover, what I THOUGHT I needed was way overblown; I needed a way to make my pics look uncluttered. This app rocks. Nuff said. Your move.
QwertyNinja93 - Works better than expected!
I had been wanting an app that does this kind of thing for a while. When I found and got this one, I was expecting it to kind of work, but not be quite as great as it was advertised. After using though, I found that it works remarkably well! I’m impressed by the capability of the AI to remove objects. I’m able to make tons of my photos look really good. If you are on the fence about getting this app, I would highly recommend it!
Fernando305 - Love this App more than LR mobile
It’s so much easier than using Lightroom phone app for object removals and line segments.
The sharing feature is also great since I can just send that photo straight from LR into this app in full size.
I don’t know if it looses some quality in the transfer, so far photos are great, especially for social media and on the Go. Of course if you’re on the desktop using LR just keep using it, but for on the go, this hands down much user friendly and works awesome.
JamesInLutz - Amazing App
This is one of only two photo editing apps that I found that work as or better than advertised. This app is so easy to use and the results are amazing. I have been scanning hundreds of old family photos some over 100 years old. Many have blemishes, tiny holes, and tears. This app allows me to restore them. I’ve had so many complements on the restored photos from the family members that let me scan the originals. To the developer: thank you so much!!!
Layla ❤️❤️ - Great
It’s a great app, definitely worth the money. It doesn’t work on some photos, especially very detailed ones, but that’s because the app doesn’t know exactly what the rest of the photo looks like. The app takes other parts of the photo and covers the parts you don’t want. Overall, the app is good for small fixes, but erasing an entire car, or wall would be difficult. Great app, I definitely recommend.
TiaHio1 - No background removal?
I saw all the great reviews and thought this would do what I needed and so I spent the $4. Unfortunately, though it does say it removes the background, it doesn't... It only removes certain things from the background. And then replaces them with a similar color. I'm needing something that actually removes the entire background so I can have a solid color background behind it. This does not do that. So if that's what you're looking for, I do not recommend this app. Looks like it'd be great for regular photo touch ups. Unfortunately, that's not what I was needing.
To the creators...Perhaps you will consider adding that feature to the app as well? Thanks!
Jackscraig - Hasn’t let me down yet…✔️
When I decided to play ‘Let’s pretend an iPad can replace my Mac’, I had to try out tons of goofy apps just to be able to do the simplest things I could do before.
If I were turning that story around and was trying to replace my iPhone or iPad with a Mac, I’d be looking all over to find something to replace Retouch. Even Photoshop didn’t have the ease of use and predictability of success I get with this app on my phone.
Super intuitive and accurate, with some unique features that do what you’re hoping they’ll do. Use it right in Photos for a super slick, fast fix.
UPDATE: Still digging this a year later but wanted to point out that If you ever need to zoom in on a photo beyond what the Photos app allows, this is a quick way to go a few levels beyond real quick.
T2delan - App not class
It’s not very user friendly. I’m not a technophobe- I love these types of apps, but it took forever for me erase my ex-husband out of ONE wedding photo. And the results were funny (as in I showed my friends who laughed) but it didn’t come close to the tutorial or the sample photos. I understand these things take time but I don’t have hours to photoshop in the real world. Maybe for teenagers or Influencers it’s a great tool; for those of us with jobs, commitments and responsibilities if I use an hour of productive time I want something quality to show for it and this isn’t the tool for that.

MSPLLZ - Highly recommend
I love using this app for when I am on the go and I can easily get rid objects in a scene, for example people in the background at a beach and I incredibly surprised just how good a job it does and it only take me a few seconds.
Definitely recommend if your the own the go and need to quickly edit something out.
Mic_50 - Highly recommend
This app has been a staple for years for editing. So many of the latest iOS features have been added.
Not always perfect, but with few tries it is pretty convincing at removing objects.
I’ve tried many apps to do this, and this one is on top
Orphia Nay - Very handy and effective
I've been using this often on my iPhone 7 for about 18 months.
I use it to remove tiny annoyances, and to remove power lines in photos.
Thank you very much to the developers. 5 stars.
I'm risking feeling guilty for tarnishing my enthusiastic review with some constructive criticism, but I'll add that there doesn't ever seem to be a way to save retouched photos (no "Go" button) when I try to use the app via the "..." option in native photo editing (Apple "Photos") on my iPad Pro, and I've had to resort to screenshots, or start again from accessing the app directly.
Thanks again, this is an essential tool, and I highly recommend it.
Alan O'Callaghan - Pleasantly surprised
So impressed with this app. I’d been looking for something to remove folds & blemishes and retouch works so well. Just have to figure out how to remove fade - half of a photo was faded due to a fold. Looking forward to see future features, but for now retouch has brought many of my archive photo’s to life. Well done!
DanielBaird - Severely limited without subscription
This app was described as “free” but the free version only supports a single save per day. If you have three photos to edit, you’ll need a long weekend to get them done (and only if you don’t make a mistake or forget something).
It’s better described as a trial version. I’m giving two stars because the functionality seems fine, it’s just that you can’t really use it without paying more.
SavageChip810 - AMAZING
This app is amazing! The object removal tool is basically magic. There is no ‘smear’ left behind, and I’ve tried it on some tricky photos like grass, water and rocks. I chose this app purely because it was the only one I could find without in-app purchases, so kudos to that too. Simple app that works. Thanks.
Jamin Laundy - Perfect app and serves it’s purpose
This is an amazing app I’ve used apps with the same feature but the results have never been great. This app is easy to navigate and the results are flawless. Definitely recommend downloading and trying it out
A.trueblueaussie - Just this minute bought this App.
Wow👌🏼I ALWAYS look to the reviews as a guide The reviews here compelled my to buy this app although dubious despite the rave reviews First time I used it just too good. The tutorials the interface the ability to do as it claims fantastic. I Especially like the cloning . In conclusion Wow 😳😃
Cordelia rose - Amazing but could use a few touch ups
The object removal tool is amazing I use it on a LOT of my photos but the blemish tool could use a bit of an update other than that it is phenomenal and I highly recommend you to buy it! 😁
EbonyOnWeekends - Fantastic app!
Where has this been all my life!!!! I cannot stand power lines they ruin otherwise great shots and this app removes them perfectly keeping your photo intact it is like they never were there in the first place!!!
RichDigital - Better than class leading editing programs
I am amazed at how well this app can remove large objects with just a few strokes and the line removal editor is awesome. I have just removed a metal street sign which was in the foreground of my photograph. Gone!
NamzApps - Awesome!
I am trying to make a movie, and with this I can remove anyone's accidental foot or other body part without having to film again! Definitely recommend having, just in case. 😉❤️👍🏼👌🏼
Nitrotash - Had this app for years and wouldn’t be without it!!
I absolutely love this app. It is simple, effective and definitely a part of my “go to” group of apps which I wouldn’t be without.
W00kiee - Works a treat!
Happy to say this app does what it says. Have been playing with it and while there are few glitches with results it does a fantastic job. Wish photoshop could be as easy!
Natalie1203 - The best app!
This is the only app I’ve found that can successfully and convincingly remove people and other objects from the background of your photos! Photoshop couldn’t even do it for me!
Lksmth - Wow
I bought this app just to see if it works, completely excepting that it would be obvious where objects had been erased. I have to say I am genuinely very impressed with what it can do without leaving a trace.
C.G6 - Disappointing
I got this app thinking it would be perfect for what I do with photos but shortly after found out it’s terrible for the fact you remove an object & in the Tutorials it somehow turns out looking normal but when I’ve tried to remove an object it goes noticeably blurry then tried the quick repair that just makes it worse
Grolls43 - I love this app
As a very amateur iPhone photo this app is great to remove objects. Works perfectly really happy to pay the cost as this app works as advertised and the reviews.
Shellandshlo - Love this app
I had so many photos I took of shop window displayed but were ruined by reflections and glare this got rid of it all and also ugly power lines thank you developers
Avid One - Brilliant app and easy to use
Brilliant app for instant quick editing of photos that can be uploaded in minutes of capturing.
Chez apples - Highly recommended again
I have been using this app for quite a while now.
Apart from the usual functions I particularly enjoy saving printer ink on the receipts I produce for my wife. She likes to keep an eye on purchases to make sure there are no fraudulent ones.
Once off payment for full version.
Support respond promptly.
Judimum - Love love love this
Thanks so much for this app guys it’s the best!! I’m constantly amazing my family and friends by fixing a photo in seconds!
Lion man 14 - Great app
Very easy to use without a large churning curve. Edit photos within minutes of opening app for the first time!!!!
Kevin Chiv - Great app overall
However, having to purchase separately for the iPad and iPhone version is a bit too much. You could have introduced a package for both.
Chop(p)in - Fabulous
This is my go to app to really make a difference to cluttered images. 10/10.
MishyCube - Perfect
Seriously, I was hesitant about this app but it took me all of five minutes to fall in love with it. This is probably the best photo editing app I’ve ever used 😍
Cata2906 - Great way to get rid of unwanted objects in photo
I love using this app, very easy and practical to use
Mason_pj - Amazing App
Super fast and easy to use. Amazing results. The line removal for powerlines etc is particularly good. Best app of its kind I’ve used.
Nbchick - Great app
Highly recommend for people with small business social media. I can easily remove faults and objects!!
KathandKim - Fantastic
So easy and I don’t know how the program does it, but it certainly eliminates things and puts a great replacement in!
Will_c_82 - Love it
Easy to use. It works really well to remove objects in photos
TJ555 - Love this app
Love this app for the simplicity it offers and brilliance at one thing that it does so well.
Sarahhhh_C - Great App
This app works so well to remove almost ANYTHING from photos. It is definitely worth the money!!
Izzymacie - TouchRetouch
Why is it that the Icon of the old Retouch can’t be changed to new one?
W@yne's iPhone - Very Impressive
This is hands down the best object removal tool I’ve found. It also removes wires and meshes.
Ticklesyou - Best app ever
If I could give 10 stars I would love it thank you.
Stevieboy777 - Great to have in your toolbox 🧰
Excellent app, can’t find a fault with it - it just works 👌🏻
*ToneHound* - Cheap and Nasty
I don’t see what the fuss is about this app? It leaves artifacts when items have been deleted from a photo and it is extremely hard to zero in precisely on what you want to delete whether it be a simple line or object. Very sloppy and crude to use and work with.
I will be asking for a refund.
Hoges82749582947 - Unbelievable
I don’t know how it does it but seamlessly removes unwanted items from photos.
Sweetnectargoodness - Awesome app
Works really good, tool me a while to figure it out but once you get use to it , works really good
Doggiesrock - Doggies rock
The best value for money photo editing app so easy to use highly recommended
IVT Flowers - Hard to use apl
A bit hard to use. Got a bit more user friendly.
DamirRomanik - Love this app
Simple and easy yet very powerful capability to do very difficult tasks.
Annoyeeeddddd - Charged twice?
Hi, I seemed to have been charged twice for the app. How do I dispute this? Thanks!
Deerchild - Great app easy retouch with a finger
Love this app. So user friendly
Tassiecelt - Ripoff
I bought the iPhone app for the iPad, the iPhone app is not well labeled. As usual it looks rubbish on iPad but I’m not paying again for it.
Besides that it really doesn’t work as well as claimed. I have other apps that fail just as well as this.
I advise against wasting your money
Try again 7 - Great for quick editing
Love love love fantastic editing app easy to use 💖
IanCamo - Fantastic App
Simple and easy to use.
Wot lgb - Eraser tool not working
Always used touch retouch, but unfortunately the eraser tool no longer works. Have tried deleting and reinstalling but have had no luck. Any ideas?
Oqkwnd - A joke
Paid for the app to remove background objects and all it was was a simple pinboard but the app did a terrible job it’s so bad I couldn’t post the photo 😂😂 If I could give 0 stars I would

Curculluca - Amazing!
So far the Best App ever!
Mikewhoccheesehhairy - So good
Amazing!! I only know this for Tik Tok tho.. lol
Don't like losing bc LAG - Really good app!
It does what it says, I have tried photoshop/Lightroom/Snapseed but I think this app is better in removing objects. The line feature is a time saver.
TheCosmicSean - Incredible accuracy
The automatic artifact removal is incredibly easy to use and accurate. I wish this app was universal for the iPad though, and I was surprised to see how much more expensive the macOS version is.
Tnafe - Not what it’s advertised
I tried to use the app to take objects out of my pictures but when I tried to edit a person out of my picture, it just ends up distorting me, giving me an extra nose.
Jpcyr - I use it ALL THE TIME.
I would go as to claim this is the most useful app on my phone after the camera. If the photo app could work so effortlessly and so one thing great like this app. Please do not change, do not add features. Keep the app great as it is. I specially like that you can edit a photo directly from the Photo.app without opening the app. It’s just perfect. Thank you.
Tomasinna - Great app
I use for business, the only flaw... sometimes it mirrors or smudges parts of pictures I am leaving in the photo
Fredward bureau Russell - So good
I’ve been using this app since my iPhone X can’t go back to anything else
Sanjoub - Great App...but..
It’s undeniably one of the best retouching tools out there.
Only one suggestion: I have weak eyes! I am struggling to read the tools name at the bottom of the screen (on my iPhone)! Please consider making their font a bit larger and clearer! Thank you!
Dr. Gill - Very disappointing to see the subscription for customers who purchased this App years ago.
It’s saddening but also frustrating to see that as a customer of this app for so many years since it first came out (along with the purchase of HandyPhoto many years ago) this app is now gone to ridiculously expensive subscription. At least the developers should have given the existing customers the option to one time purchase for lifelong usage. But No consideration for existing customers. There are many apps who have turned to subscription model but retained their old customers either totally free or by giving one time in-app purchase to use forever. Utterly disappointing, misleading and unethical.
China Suárez - Scam
I purchased this app about two years ago, nowadays it makes you pay (yet again) yearly to use it
Great gggggggameee - love it！
Best tool for edit photos
VanguardHydra - Finally an app you pay once.
Paid once because I needed to do some photo cloning and healing edits. App integrates with Apple Photos nicely. Managed to do the edits quickly and easily. -1 star because there is no basic way to colour over a section of a photo with a large soft edge brush.
Hopefully it’s coming. This app is great in a sea of subscription garbage!
Daly43 - Easy to Use
This is my go-to app for quick edits.
Ellen Vee - Retouch no longer touching
This app used to be linked to my Photos app on my iPhone. This appears to no longer be the case. Now, to retouch photos, one has to go directly to the app and it’s a lot more clumsy. I’m not impressed. If this is considered an improvement, you’ve got it all backwards.
Whymm - My favourite retouch app
I paid a few dollars for this over a year ago and it is my absolute go to for touching up photos on my phone. Line and object removal tools are fantastic and allow a good amount of control for the user. The auto features are quite good and manual changes are intuitive and work very well. This is a definite asset to anyone who likes to take pics on their phone.
Nick Mits - Bought it on my IPhone and it wants to charge me again on my Macbook .why??
Great app but why would I need buy it twice. Purchased for my phone and now it wants me to buy it again for my Macbook. I'll look for something else.
Fuzzykidlover - Amazing App!
Best App ever! Don’t let the price fool you!
Tiresome Fox - Amazing
The app just keeps getting better and better.
D.P169 - I love this app
This app is so much fun it makes my photos look so pretty
Kene Mc - Such a great app
Love the features and it helps with editing well. I would love for the object removal tool to remove things a bit more seamless without the blur where it is visible.
Primerode12 - Excellent
Removing people or objects is easy with this app. I’ve used it for family vacation pics or just random artsy shots where I’d like wire or squirrel removed. Recommend!
Ramos96 - Easiest object removal ever!
I totally love how easy this app makes object removal for me.
Tbiar - I want my money back
I just downloaded this app and i don’t like it, I’m trying to remove some people in back of me and i and it up whit two giant arms and missing part of the background, this app may work to remove small objects but not to remove people or large objects
Worst app ever
Kftjkit - Pretty useless for removing people in the background
And no trial version. Bad user experience.
Cfarq - Amazing app!!!
This app is a game changer for editing product photos for me. Easy to use and convenient. Absolutely love it!
Cman65x - Fantastic 360 tool
The more I use this the more I like it. I’m starting to prefer the cloning over Photoshop
CheatingVegan😂 - Terrible
Terrible Since the update
Shirl-19486 - That new mesh feature tho!
Absolutely the best! The mesh feature couldn’t have come at a better time! I’m in Africa and the reserve where we are staying are acclimatizing a cheetah breading pair in a large fenced in area. I got some great pictures of them but the fence kinda ruined it. One press of the button and magically that fence is gone! Thank you!!!
Rene463 - Génial
Il s’agit d’une application simple pour retirer des éléments indésirables d’une photo. Je suis content de ne pas à avoir à apprendre le fonctionnement d’application complexe pour retoucher des photos
Jamieleeroy - Excellent app
Squidsea - One of my must-have apps
Love this app, I recommend it to everyone and it’s one of my first installs when I get a new phone. It’s great to quickly clean up photos. Interface is easy to use, design is nice, and the updates are always great.
AMT User - 360
I like it a lot for editing myself out of 360 photos. It works close to perfect
Wnwtr - Highly recommend!
Just an amazing app that I wouldn’t want to be without. I highly recommend it over similar apps I’ve tried.
So-O. - I recommend!!
Love this apps. Works very well!!👌🏻
1redhed1 - Thank you
Thank you for supporting Ukraine in this devastating time. 🕊🇺🇦
Kassi (Nova) - Must-Have Editor
This is a super powerful tool for mobile photo editors. This changed the game for me in terms of being able to tweak out even very small issues in photos. It’s easily one of my top photo editing apps and has only improved with updates since I bought it. Worth every penny.
Anilu777 - Versatile, precise and handy editing app!
I’ve had Touch Retouch on my phones for several years now and use it constantly to get rid of annoying objects, lines, blemishes etc. I love this app and appreciate the new updates eg mesh removal. Thanks, developers!
Romans B - Excellent app!
Very simple and quick to use. Results are acceptable for my needs.
Good luck out there guys!
Fairy97 - Finally an app that works
I greatly appreciate an app I can purchase with a one-time fee. I don’t want to pay monthly. This is the only app I’ve found that expertly and easily erases objects and it cost me under 6$. Thank you.
Mafiosito - The new update crashes
Changed from 5 stars to 1 star - why breaking somthing that was working fine.
Rainin Moon - the update lowkey ruined it a lot, 5-1 star tbh
bfr the revamp, it was AMAZING, like i gave it a 5 star and everything but now its just all over the place. i miss the blemish remover so much, when u put it from manual to auto it takes so much longer for it to heal or remove, and i have the newest iPhone. ik its still there but it’s not the same as it used to be. i really wish i can just revert the update! 😭
JerziHD - A total disappointment
I’m not sure if it’s worse on an iPhone than my daughters Samsung, but this app does not do what it disproved to me and only leaves a blob of a mess behind. I’d love my $ back just in principal of this mistake of a waste of my time and money.
Tigris86 - What happened?
Love this app and still works fairly well but so much more work now without the quick retouch and line features, seems crazy to remove things that worked so well??
IINTTERREESSTTTIINNGGG - New Update
This app was my lifesaver before. Now, the new update makes the lines so obvious. Complete garbage now.
Koroshino - The best
I bought into touch retouch when you guys first launched. Amazing support, and just keeps getting better. And not one change to a subscription service like most have. I hold out hope more apps follow your shining example. Wish you guys the best.
Infocurious - great retouching tool
Easy to use, simple and it works!
JetPacK001 - Great!
Hands down one of my favourite Apps!!
Barbararaa - Upsetting
Very upset I spent money on a app that dose a terrible job for it’s only purpose. It is terrible to remove items - Dose not work. There are free apps out there that do a much better job
Nansjsh - No DNG Format
Please Add DNG format when exporting Finished files if its possible. Image quality is ruined everytime i go and edit the finished file in Lightroom. Jpg files aren’t good to edit. They become pixelated.
