    Break-ups are often messy, painful and often involve a lot of Deliveroo.

    But while memories fade, there’s a constant reminder of what once was whenever you look back at photos. Looking for a picture from your amazing trip to Italy? Your former SO is in them all. That picture from your sister’s wedding on your mum’s mantlepiece? Yep, there’s the ex again. And don’t even get us started on the social media delete debate.

    If you’re struggling to get rid of your former lover Eternal Sunshine-style, guess what? It’s possible. Kind of. A new service, Edit My Ex, can alter the photos you love to remove the person you don’t.

    It has launched just in time for Valentine’s Day (romantic), and employs image editing experts to professionally remove ex-partners out of joint photos so that the image can be used in future.

    From family gathering shots and holiday photos, to images of special occasions where an ex-partner was present, there’s no photo that can’t be retouched. All you have to do is upload the photo of your choice to the website and attach a note explaining who you’d like removed from the image. The professional designer will then edit the image and send you back your ex-free pic.

    So what’s the cost? If you want your ex removed it’ll set you back £6.99 per photo.

    Creator Mark Rofe said: ‘After presenting my friend with an ex-less image as a gift, I saw just how powerful the effect of removing an ex-partner from a favourite digital photograph could be.

    ‘As someone with a background in design, I thought that I could put my skills to good use to make someone going through a break-up smile, and with my team of designers, we can’t wait to start helping others regain their favourite photos without any unwelcome additions.’
