NEW RELEASE! - Pimple Eraser

12 May 2011

I'm really excited about this app. I spend a lot of time in Photoshop editing marks on people's faces. So it got me wondering, why isn't there a simple app to do this on the App Store? And by simple I mean really simple!

Pimple Eraser is the result, and it's available on the App Store now! It works as advertised, guaranteed! I use it all the time to remove unwanted marks in my photos. You just put a circle over the blemish you want removed and press a button...that's it! This isn't a "rubber stamp" app where you have to choose where to pull pixels from to cover the blemish. Pimple Eraser does all of the hard work for you, no Photoshop skills required!
