Begone you pesky tourists!

How annoying is it when you’re travelling and come to one of the great sights in the world, only to have your pictures ruined by the dozens of other tourists milling round the place?

Well you can say goodbye to a host of fat waddlers using the Tourist Remover function on free web-based photo hosting service snapmania that someone told me about yesterday.

It’s simple to operate once you’ve signed up for an account. Just stick the camera on a trip or stable surface, reel off three of four snaps of the same scene, download the pics, apply Tourist Remover and the software does the rest.

I tested it out this morning by waking mrsworldofjames up a bit earlier to photograph her walking across our street. It took about an hour for the results to come in from snapmania, but I’m sure you’ll agree the resulting image that takes her out of the equation is pretty impressive.

The site is snapmania.com if you’re interested, the images are below…
