Generative Erase can remove large areas from an image while preserving color and generating missing parts. So it will be hard to spot that someone has edited the photo. Microsoft notes that Generative Erase removes an object on the first try, and also allows you to simultaneously remove several objects from your image.

The Generative Erase feature will appear in the Edit > Erase toolbar section in the Photos app. The update is currently only available to Windows Insiders.
