I know of no automatic tool to do automatic photo retouching. I will share that a paint or photo edit program could make this a little easier. Too bad you didn't mention which one...

For one that I have, I use a clone-draw tool. This tool copies a nearby pattern (selectable in offset and size) to the place I am drawing. The effect is what I'm painting over is using same colors as what's in the photo. This seems to help it all blend in.

Best of luck,

Editing Dates

Other than cloning after the fact, you should see if your camera menu has that as a setting.

Look in your manual or online under support for your make/model and you should be able to find where to turn it off pre-shooting. I had the same problem when I first began.

Sorry, there is no way to get rid of these dates on the photos once it is taken except cloning in any editing software.Turn off the option from your camera menu. Actually dates are not required in the digital cameras because every details are kept in exif files.These date stamps spoil lots of good photos either.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
