How to Repair Broken Buildings or Other Objects in Photos

Photography is one the best forms of communication. A photographer captures amazing moments through the his/her camera, and communicates so many emotions & expressions through it, to the person who finally views it.

A decade back, this form of expression was mostly limited to professional photographers who wielded their mighty DSLRs to capture some amazing moments. However, with smartphones being so common amongst everyone these days, and their cameras becoming so good, everyone now has the ability to share and express through amazing images.

Repair Broken Buildings or Other Objects in Photos

However, many times an almost perfect shot is ruined by the presence of some unwanted objects. It may be a person photobombing your image, or a bird flying through the frame at that exact moment, or the building that has been photographed is broken which is causing the image to look defective. Either ways, such a situation can be really frustrating for the photographer.

People then search for tools to fix such images, to remove the unwanted birds flying through the image or to repair the broken parts of the building in photos,. Though there are many such tools available, most are pretty complex and unintuitive to use for amateurs, for example, Photoshop. In this article we will share a software that is very powerful, yet easy to use.

Part 2. What is Donor in Photo Eraser?

It also can be called Green Donor Mode, which allows you to choose which parts of the photo are used to fill the missing area.

All photo repair softwares use some existing information in the image to repair the image. They do this by duplicating the existing data over the data to be removed. Hence it is necessary to tell the software what data it should take as reference. And we use the Donor to do that.

Part 3. Steps to Repair Broken Objects in Photos

Repairing the missing parts in photo is also very simple. Below we will show you how to use the Donor tool to repair the broken objects in your image.

1. Import image

First we need to import the image that we want to repair. To do that just click on the Select Photo button found in the center of the main pane of the application.

Upon clicking it, you will get the default file opener of the Operating System you are using. Just navigate to the right file and open it in the application.

2. Select the broken parts

Once the image has been opened in the application, use the Selection Brush tool to mark the area that needs repairing.

Select the broken parts.

For instance, in the image we have opened for demo, a part of the structure is missing, as marked by arrow 2. We want to repair this image and complete the structure so that it does not look bad. So we will brush over this area with Selection Brush tool. This tool is present in the left sidebar and is pointed in the image by arrow 1.

When we brush over the area that needs to be selected, that area is shown by red color. This tells us which area we have selected.

3. Select Donor parts

With the area to be repaired selected, we now have to select the area which we want the software to use as reference for the repair work.

First, we should click on the Green Donor tool marked in the image below using arrow 1, otherwise all your selection areas will be covered with Red color instead of Green color. Then choose any selection tool, for example Brush Selection tool, to select the area to be taken as reference. The arrow 2 shows the area we have marked in the photo. This area is shown by green color.

4. Start the repair process

Once the missing area to be repaired, and the donor area, both are selected, we need to click the Erase button at the bottom right of the software.

When you click this button, the software does its magic in the background and repairs the image as can be seen below.
