Remove shadow from photo


How often do you find a good composition to take selfies in front of, and then you find out you're getting unnecessary shadows over your image caused by the sun glare? Not everyone is familiar with camera settings to make perfect shots, especially when there are certain conditions that can overexpose your photograph, causing hard shadows to appear on your face. If you do not take the settings into account, you can also fix that image in Photoshop, because the right colors are still there, you just need to reprocess them and filter out the shadows. But an easier solution that will save you much time is removing shadows from pictures with the RetouchMe app.

Reasons to use our app to remove shadows from pictures

Looking for an online photo brightener may issue some difficulties. Which app to use and which one is better are 2 common questions here. The app market is filled with different apps, some of them are good for certain jobs, and some of them are featured multiple options. You may find your perfect photo brightener app with a trial and error method, but it would waste your storage space. And there are bigger chances that you end up with no app that is working for your specific photo. Why does this happen? The short answer is that most of the apps are just as bad. The long answer is that these apps' work is based on automated algorithms and filters that do not process images considering such factors as photo quality, color’s nature, and human features in the photo. These apps just take your photo as a template to apply some filter on it and the result does not look natural at all. Instead of looking for a certain shadow remover photo editor, you can try out the RetouchMe app that features hundreds of different options for any case. The main feature of the RetouchMe app is that your photographs are processed manually by a team of professional Photoshop designers online in real-time. If you use RetouchMe as your shadow remover app, you will get the best quality results, because we treat each photo individually looking at details and photo features that are hidden from automated filters and exist only in the eyes of a professional designer. RetouchMe becomes your pocket assistant 24 on 7 to edit anything in your photo to your liking.
