It doesn’t matter whether you’re taking photos at a cheesy tourist trap or at the Golden Globes there’s always a risk that a stranger (or Tina Fey) will ruin your memories with a cameo appearance in the background.

Photo technology company Scalado has developed a way to correct the so-called photobomb. It announced on Tuesday a technology called Remove that automatically deletes unwanted objects from the background of mobile phone photos.

The technology, which has not yet been released commercially, takes a series of photos in quick succession and then pinpoints moving objects in the collection, giving you the option to remove them with a click. The company will be demoing it at Mobile World Congress later this month.
