Remove tourists from crowded landmarks

Ever tried to take a photo of a crowded landmark, like we did last week in Washington, D.C.? It was almost impossible to get a clear shot of the World War II memorial, because of the strangers milling about. There's a new service called Tourist Remover which promises to make the best photos out of the most crowded scenes.

Via Wired News:
The new web service from futureLAB is part of their online photo management tool, Snapmania. It's pretty simple to use -- just take multiple photos (4 or 5 usually does the trick, according to their how-to) of the same scene using a tripod, then feed the photos into your Snapmania account. Tourist Remover will take information from all of your photos and eliminate the differences, leaving you with a clean, obstruction-free view of the subject in the background.

Oh, was I in your way? I would have gladly moved, but I was only on chapter 13 of War and Peace and the setting was just perfect. Actually, this is a terrific idea. I should have thought of it myself!

No, you weren't in my way, but I posted this for your sake, because of all the trouble you had getting a clear shot of the Capitol and Washington monument.

That settles it. We're going back to DC! :-)
