#2 Inpaint

Inpaint is another photo censor remover similar to Jihosoft Photo Eraser that helps you uncensor photos in a seamless way. By using this application you can revive those parts of an image which are either blurred or hidden by censor boxes.
It works perfectly for the censored areas which are smaller in size but might not prove that effective when used for larger images as the process of extrapolation always works best in a smaller region. Moreover, Inpaint uses the process of cloning to apply a patch from the surrounding parts onto the censored area. So, you will not be able to restore the censored parts such as a face or bikini of a model as the image which is censored does not contain data of the face or any of the body parts once they have been censored.

However, there is no need to get upset over it as Inpaint can still erase boxes, labels, logos and other small undesired objects in pictures.
