The Magic Eraser tool was on thePixel 6 and 6 pro. It is an editing feature that removes people from the background of your photos. The results are ok, but it is not putting Adobe out of business. There is a new Magic Eraser function that I like more than the standard Camouflage erase tool. The results are a lot more consistent because it is as easy to use.

Magic Eraser is similar to the content-aware fill in Adobe's Creative Suite. You make a selection, then it uses information from the surrounding image to 888-609- 888-609- 888-609- 888-609- It works well with subjects that are isolated from other objects. The results look okay given that most photos are viewed on small screens. The final image doesn't look as good if the object overlaps with other elements It's hard for the system to make a good guess about how to fill in the space left behind, and it can create some weird looking artifacts.

The purple stroller isn’t a great candidate for Erase since my subject overlaps it and the background is busy.
Changing it to grey makes it less of a distraction.

Camouflage is a good option there. The tool desaturates the object to make it less noticeable. It is ideal for a bright purple stroller. Camouflage will make it less of a distraction since it will make a mess of it trying to clone it.

The same reason that Magic Eraser exists is that I want to bring attention to my subject and not focus on other things. I don't want to completely remove something that's in the background since it's already blurred to reduce the distraction It could add context to my photo. De-saturating a brightly colored object behind my subject helps keep my attention where I want it.

The turquoise stool is a little distracting in the background.
It’s not perfect, but camouflaging it makes it a bit less of a distraction to the overall image.

On July 28th, the Camouflage tool will be available for the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, according to Matt Flegal.
