How to Use Magic Eraser on Pixel 7

Google's Pixel lineup is renowned for providing a pure Android experience and exceptional smartphone photography. With the introduction of Magic Eraser, Pixel users can now effortlessly remove unwanted objects from their photos. In this article, we will explore how to utilize the Magic Eraser feature on the newly released Pixel 7 phones.

Remove Unwanted Objects Using Magic Eraser

Please note that the Magic Eraser functionality is exclusively available within the Google Photos app and is not limited to Pixel 7 or any other Pixel devices. It cannot be accessed through the Camera or Gallery app, for example.

  1. Open the Google Photos app on your Pixel 7.
  2. Select a photo and tap on “Edit” to view it in full screen.
  3. Swipe left on the editing mode selection or tap on “Tools.” Then, proceed by tapping on “Magic Eraser.”
  4. Once the Magic Eraser tool appears, use your finger to rub over the area containing the object you want to remove from the image. As soon as you lift your finger, the object will be deleted.
  5. Pro Tip: Depending on your photo, Magic Eraser may suggest removing additional unwanted elements. If you are satisfied with the suggestions, tap on “Erase all” next to them.
  6. When you have finished editing, tap on “Done.” Then, select “Save copy” to save the modified image in Google Photos.

It is important to note that Google saves the edited image as a new copy in your Google Photos library, leaving the original image untouched. Therefore, you can always revert to the original photo if necessary.

Using Magic Eraser on Pixel 7 is both enjoyable and straightforward. The tool effectively removes objects from the background and employs artificial intelligence to seamlessly blend the edited area with the rest of the image. The difference is often imperceptible unless closely examined.
