Part 3. FAQs AboutDeleting Emoji from Picture

1.Can I Erase an Emoji Over the Face of a Person?

If there is an emoji over an object, just like over a person's face, you cannot remove it successfully. It means that if you try to remove the emoji, it will vanish from there, but you won't see the face of the person again. Object and watermark removing tools remove the object, and they replace the background with a similar background near to the object. You cannot expect them to recover the object that was behind the emoji. Thus, these tools are only useful if you don't care what is behind the object/emoji.

2.Can I Remove Multiple Emojis in a Picture?

Yes, you can remove multiple emojis in a picture. You can do it using MarkGo or any other tool that supports this feature. In MarkGo, you can use the selection tool as much as you want. If you want a new rectangle, click on the selection tool, and you will have a new rectangle. The best part is that you can have as many rectangles as you want. You can also remove multiple emojis in Retouch. You can select anything using the marker.

3.Will the Background be Blurry After Removing Emojis?
