The Gallery app on my Galaxy S22 helped me restore old family memories

When Google launched Magic Eraser alongside the Pixel 6 series, it got a lot of attention because of just how well it works at removing unwanted elements from an image. However, Samsung has a similar feature called Object Eraser that has gotten a lot less attention. I’ve played around with the feature quite a bit, and I’ve always gotten good results, but I didn’t expect it to be so helpful with a personal project of mine.

My grandfather recently passed away, and in preparation for his funeral, my family went through old photos he’s collected of the family throughout his life. He always kept several very large and heavy photo albums full of family pictures. The hope was to take some of the photos, “digitize” them, and include them in his memorandum video. However, removing the pictures from the photo albums has proved tricky, and many of them are so fragile that taking them out of their holders could ruin them. And for whatever reason, scanning them wasn’t an option. That’s when I had the idea to use Samsung’s Gallery app on my Galaxy S22 to see what I could make of them.

Digitizing physical photos turned out to be more difficult than we thought, so I thought I could use Samsung’s Gallery app to make it easier.
