Step 1 – Open the photo in PicsArt
The trick to removing the face mask from a photo is to swap in the parts blocked by the mask.
Now, we’re going to open another photo without the mask.
Tap on Add Photo.
Now choose another photo without the mask.
This is how our photo looks now.
Step 2 – Erase all the parts of the newly added photo except the bottom half of the face
With the newly added photo still selected, tap on Crop.
Now, crop the photo to the face.
Step 3 – Align the face that has no mask
Zoom in and align the face.
Reduce the opacity of the face. This will help you to align the face better.
Watch the video below to see how you can align the face.
Increase the opacity back to 100%.
Step 4 – Remove the face mask from a photo for free
After this, click on the Eraser icon.
Now tap on the Invert icon. This will hide the photo without the mask.
Now tap on Restore and start brushing on the mask and the eyes.
This is the result.
You may again need to realign the face.
Repeat step 3 to realign the face.
Now, we’re going to remove the impression of the chin.
Tap on the Eraser icon.
Now tap on Restore and start brushing on the impression of the chin.
Also, remove all the unwanted impressions on the face. Use this same way to remove them.
I removed the impressions on the ears, chin, and eyebrows.
Step 5 – Match the skin tone after removing the face mask from the photo
Tap on Adjust.
I’m going to tweak some sliders.
This will blend the skin tone after removing the face mask.
The same settings may not work for you.
- Brightness: +2
- Saturation: -19
- Clarity: +10
- Highlights: +7
And that’s it.
