07 No need for alarm

I’ll finish with a simple one. The Perfect Eraser should have no trouble with this alarm box on the right-hand side of the picture.

And it’s gone! There’s something not quite right about the edge of the wall where the alarm box used to be, but no-one’s going to notice that at normal viewing distances.

So here’s the start shot and the end shot at the same time. Can you spot the differences now? I think the OnOne Perfect Eraser works pretty well most of the time, but it seems to lurch from spectacular success to unexpected failure as unpredictably as the Photoshop version.

The verdict? It’s definitely worth having, and an important and impressive addition to Perfect Suite 8. It’s good to see Adobe’s rivals matching it blow for blow, too. Just don’t expect miracles every time.
