    "So I have this REALLY good photo with a good background (because it was taken on top of a mountain) but since there were a lot of hikers during that time, I decided to have my photo taken even if there were a lot of people in the background, yeah because I was already aware that apps like this exist so I was able to remove the photobombers easily!!"

    "This is surprisingly powerful photo editing software on your phone. The controls are a little clunky and the interface isn't the best, but it gets the job done. If you know what you're doing, you can really put it to good use, like removing photobombs, red-eye, and background noise."

    "Before, I thought that Adobe Photoshop cant remove a photobomber. But it just takes skills and learning how to do it to be able to do it using this app because I believe most professional photogs use this for editing. Since I already have a background with this tool, I was able to remove a photobomber on my friend's wedding photo.."


To “photobomb” is to hijack a photo by getting in the way just as the photo is getting taken. The act of photobombing is typically seen as a prank. The first documented use of the word was in 2008, when Urban Dictionary user U8IK provided a definition for “photobombing.”


Did you know that the iconic picture of The Beatles walking down a crosswalk in Abbey Road was photobombed by an American tourist? A man can be seen standing beside a car, just next to John Lennon’s head. Paul Cole, who was standing outside as he was waiting for his wife to finish touring a museum, was unaware that a photoshoot was happening. It wasn’t until six months later, when he was back in America, that he saw the album cover and recognized himself in the photograph. While that may be the most famous photobomb, it is certainly not the first. The advent of the internet and photo sharing sites helped popularize photobombing, but the concept itself predates the internet. A photo by Mary Dillwyn, a Welsh photographer in the 19th century, might be the first known photobomb in history. Entitled Sally and Mrs. Reed, the photo from 1853 shows a girl peeping from behind a wall with a smile on her face. 

On a funny note, photobombing has become intentional especially when trying to pull a prank on a friend as he or she tries to achieve a picture-perfect shot. This is actually common in some Hollywood photos where famous celebs channel their inner photobomb-selves. Thank goodness for Photoshop, one can now easily crop one out in just a few clicks. Anyway, if pranking is your thing, you should try some see-through clothes app and freak your friends out by showing them that your camera passes through their shirts!

    "I am really unsure how to rate Easy Eraser. When this app works it does a great job of removing unwanted items from your photos. However, this app is not very consistent and only works a small fraction of the time."

    "My boyfriend and I took a photo with a waterfalls background but there were several people who were swimming that time, So what he did is when he got the photo, he tried to remove those people by using snapseed. Thankfully it really worked and the photo looks as if there were no people there originally. as if we own the place. LOL"
