Magic Erase

Magic Erase is a photo tool in Designer Pro which lets you retouch photos quickly and easily.
When you use Magic Erase on part of a picture, that part of the picture is erased and filled in with image information from an adjacent part of the picture.
Here's how to use Magic Erase:

  1. Select a photo.
  2. Select the Clone/Magic Erase tool from the photo tools. The mouse cursor will turn into a pencil.
  3. Using the pencil cursor, outline the section of the image you want to retouch.
  4. Then, click the "Magic Erase" button in the info bar.
    The software will now analyze the image and fill the outlined area with new image information.
  5. If you aren't happy with the results, simply click the "Magic Erase" button again. This time, the software will take the image information from a different part of the image.
  6. To undo Magic Erase attempts, go to "Edit" > "Undo". You can use this approach to perform a series of Magic Erases and then go back through them one at a time to pick the best one.
