Best & quickest way to digitally remove car number plate from photo?


Recommended Posts

When posting a photo of my car, I always digitally remove my number plate by using the 'clone' function, which is fine but time consuming. Also, if it is orientated flat on to screen you can superimpose a white rectangle over it. But if orientated at an angle, this isn't a great solution.

Is there a better way to digitally remove the number? An app/program I don't know about?

On a computer I just use a photo editing program, use the Colour pick tool to match white/yellow and then use a brush to colour over the digits. Not massively time consuming but not quick either. 

I find it harder to do on a phone where the photo apps are a bit limited (well, the apps I have). I'm sure someone will have an easier option.

You didn't say what system you use, so have no idea what to use on Apple or Android.

Apple?? God, I just felt a little sick in my mouth LOL Windows & Android me, wouldn't touch a 'fruit' product if I got it free! May try MS Paint next time, thanks... Also the paintbrush option I have in my 'FastStone' program suggested by previous poster.

I too don't want Apple, although I've never tried it so don't know if I like it or not. I would use a Raspberry (pie), and can remember Apricot computers. There is of course Linux for Geeks, and which most of the Internet servers run on. I have a feeling Android is a form of Linux. My Father uses Ubuntu on his old Dell Laptop.

As for Photo editing I use the well established (and free) GIMP. I don't want to pay for Photoshop/lightroom. For simple editing, cropping, basic colour adjustments, etc, I use the default Windows photo editor.
