Skylum Reinventing Traditional Photo Editing with Generative AI Technology.

What is GenErase and How Does it Work?

Well, as you have probably realized from the demo, GenErase cleverly allows you to remove distracting objects from a photo.

This is all possible due to an AI technology process called diffusion, a type of image generation technique that can produce high-quality images with realistic textures and details. 

In this process, an image is created by gradually refining a noise signal through a series of transformations, such as blurring or sharpening, until the desired image is reached. 

Gene Erase is an advanced eraser tool that not only eliminates unwelcome distractions from your photos but also cleverly replaces those regions, creating a composition that is both focused and free of distractions.

GenErase - Content-Aware AI Tool


By using Generative AI to fill in the blanks with textures and other elements that match the perspective and surrounding area, this feature helps you maintain the integrity of your photos. 

To maintain the composition’s beauty, GenErase can easily remove elements like rubbish, street signs, utility poles, cars, graffiti, crowds, and more.

Now, as far as I know to date, images based on diffusion models, require there to be an internet connection in order to work and access the huge amounts of required data. This is something important to bear in mind before you decide to use this powerful tool.

GenErase Example.

As you can see Generative AI does have some very practical uses that help us do the things we already do, but faster and with less hassle. 

Now, to help you imagine all the ways in which you’ll find this tool useful, here’s another example.
