There are lots of programs out there that promise to eliminate watermarks from pictures, and when you put them to the test, they fall short of what you’d expect for a watermark remover. Until recently, I thought that I will never going to find a simple watermark remover for Windows 10, Windows 8 that would work as good as Photoshop does, but after searching for a while, I found Photo Stamp Remover.
This lightweight and easy to use program does (to some extent) remove the watermarks from images. However, I strongly recommend that you do not use this program to remove the watermarks from other people’s photos, as this is not moral. You can, however, use it to remove time-stamps from photos, or even some elements from the photo if needed.
How does Photo Stamp Remover work?
The process that this watermark remover software for Windows 10, Windows 8 uses is fairly simple, as it uses the images and patterns from around the selected area to fill the space where the watermark is. As you can imagine, this technique works on some photos better than on others. While in testing, with some photos, I got a great result, and others, well…not so much. Even so, with the photos where it worked, the result was spectacular.
I have used this tiny program to remove both watermarks and different elements from some pictures. If you were wondering what types of watermarks it didn’t erase, these were those that were overlaying the photo. In this test, it only managed to scramble the entire photo. But for most of what users, need, Photo Stamp Remover for Windows 10, Windows 8 will get the job done with no problem.
Using Photo Stamp Remover is very simple. Thanks to its very user friendly interface, adding photos and editing them is a breeze. All the tools are in the upper menu, starting from Add Photos and all the way to the magic “Remove” button.
Selecting the area where the watermark is placed is done by pressing one the three buttons on the top menu. For simple watermarks, you can use the simple selection tools and draw a square over the area with the watermark. The other option is to use the Selection Marker, which lets you paint over the area you want to edit. Last but not least, you have the option to select a single color and remove it with the Select Color option.
Once you’ve selected your watermark, you can find the Remove button in the same menu, right next to the Color Select. Also here, users can find another removal method, Quick Remove, but from I saw, it offers lower quality results.
As you can see from the pictures, the process was a smashing success and all traces of the watermark were gone. Although I am against removing watermarks from pictures that belong to other, this Windows 10, Windows 8 watermark removal program can be used to edit photos and get rid of unwanted elements.
Other Photo Stamp Remover features
With this awesome software, you can not only remove logos, watermarks and stamps, but you also can correct photos. If there are some unwanted elements – they can be easily removed in a couple of clicks.
You can also rejuvenate old photos that you keep in your family archive. All you have to do is to scan those photos, upload them to your computer and open them in Photo Stamp Remover. The software will clean all the dust, reshape scratches and cracks. Keep in mind that if you do scan them at a low-quality scanner, you will get a less satisfying result, so use a good one.
Another important feature is that you can retouch more than one photo at a time. If you have several photos with the same stamp, as some cameras use to leave, you can select them, you can simply define the area where the stamp/logo/watermark is located and start the removal process.
