Guide line functionality is described in more detail in this tutorial: How to Use Guide Line to Erase Things from Photos
Red Mask
Mask Mode. Normally, the area you select by any selection tool will be covered with Red Mask by default, and the Red-mask area will be erased when you begin the erase process.
Green Donor
Donor Mode. Donor area allows you to choose which parts of the photo are used to fill the selection area. As we mentioned before, the selection area will be brushed with Red Mask preferentially, so if you want the selection area to be covered by Green Donor, please click on the Green Donor first and then make the selection with any tools.
Green Donor functionality is described in more detail in this tutorial: How to Use Donor to Repair Broken Objects in Photos.

3 Steps to Erase Unwanted Objects from Photos with Jihosoft Photo Eraser

Now that you have learned how to use the tools in the program. Let’s go straight to the next part! With merely three simple steps you can make all the unwanted parts vanish from your photos as if they were never there.

Step 1: Select Photo/Select Folder

Select and load a single image which is spoiled with unwanted stuff. Or load all the images inside a folder at once with the Select Folder option.

Step 2: Brush the stuff you want to remove from the photo

Selecting is as easy as this: take the Selection Brush tool and brush the unwanted object. You can use the Fix the Selection Brush to make the selected area more precise. And you can change the brush size or zoom in/out the photo to make it easier to brush a rather small area.

Note: It’s recommended to remove objects one by one, but you also can select several stuffs at once, and all of them will be removed all together when you start the erase process.

Step 3: Remove items from picture

Now, click the "Erase" button and wait a little as the Photo Eraser tool processes the picture. Seconds later, you are managed to turn a spoiled picture into a nearly perfect one!

1. Rather than trying to remove all objects at once, try brushing and applying the "Erase" button to each object one by one. You will get surprisingly great results.
2. Each erase procedure is unique, so you'll get a slightly different result each time you apply the "Erase" button.
