How to Fill the Gap with Clone Stamp Tool

You have to get the app named 'Touch retouch' directly from google playstore to your android smartphone or tablet.

Lets move on to know how to use this app accurately and fill the gap from a picture and make it look like natural.
Firstly start the app in your phone and select the picture from gallery that you want to edit and remove an object.


When we remove a big object from a picture, it is for sure we are going to have gaps or a blotchy area in that particular space. The quick repair will not be able to fix that big space for you, so we have to do it manually. To get it done you have to click on the Clone Stamp tool and select the brush from it.

Then you have to choose an area that you want as the source, in the sense the copy that you want to replace in the gap space. And then simply start to paint the gap area and it will cover the space with the copy source.



In case you want to fill in the gap with the same patterns that's in the other side of the picture, then select the option mirroring. This will allow the source target to move along with your brushing finger. So that you will not have to keep picking the source so many times.


You have to be careful using the clone tools, as it might get messed up easily. If you mistakenly selected a part that you don’t wish to remove, then simply tap on the undo button, which is available in the top of the screen as an arrow. If you don’t want to undo all the selections, then use eraser to remove a part of the selected space.


That’s it. Now you can save the picture and enjoy the perfectly clicked capture.
