It's called resynthesizer and you can find more about it here: http://www.logarithmic.net/pfh/resynthesizer

What's so great about it?
With that plugin you can apply one pic as a texture to another pic, remove parts from an image cloning the background (automatically!) and make tilleable textures.

Click to install:

apt://gimp-resynthesizer

Already knew about it. In fact, that is how I convert a lot of my 1600x1200 wallpapers to 1680x1050. ;)

I have used that plugin for some time now, it saves me a lot of time editing images and works pretty slick!

As a matter of fact, I believe that smartboyathome was the one that originally told me about this plugin. (Thanks again!)

A slight bump here, I have GIMP 2.6.7 on Ubuntu 9.10, but the plugin does not appear anywhere after installation from the repositories. Also not in Script-Fu, where it should be.

Am I doing something wrong or is it simply not compatible anymore with current Gimp?

I had trouble finding it at first too...

Maybe I have a non-standard install but for me it is under Filters>Map>Resynthesize

Oh yeah, there it is for me too!

I get really bad results for bigger images, and on the Resynth page it sais you need to run a script from the Script-Fu menu, but there is nothing resynth related in there.

It's in Filters > Enhance > Smart Remove Selection.

Just used this plug in for the first time today. Default settings :

Too bad this one doesn't have the fat results Photoshop CS5's content aware fill has. I could really use that right now. Resynth is more like the Spot Healing Brush tool.

It's much more than that if you check out the plug in's website. Someone ran the plugin on the same images used in the photoshop videos and gained similar results :

It's definitely not as good as CS5's implementation, but it has been around for a while & free.

Not sure what you expected to be able to do with that image.The plugin needs something to work with.It is not going to be able to restore the missing part of his face.

Here is a realistic type of thing you can do with it.My first go around with the plugin:

No those are zooms of the logo I removed. Thats what I ran the plugin on. It's impressive considering I did it a full res. Check out the flickr to see the zoomed in portion at full res.

Ooooooh I see...my eye was drawn to the big blurry square and away from the fact that there was a logo on his shirt :oops:

I recently went through my wallpaper collection and used the plugin to remove some nasty ugly website logos and watermarks.It does a fantastic job on that kind of stuff.

I am sorry but you can clearly see that Photoshop does a much better job.

Resynth smudges pixels anyway it feels like is a close match to the surroundings. Photoshop is aware of the structure of the surrounding and tries to extrapolate that into the regenerated zone.

What are you sorry for?

New technology for yet to be released products should be better than things that are a few years old, correct? For the logo removal in my example and a few other tests I've ran it's just fine. Obviously I can't compare with CS5 because I can't and won't own it any time soon.

Thankyou,thankyou...I'm here all week :p

I have a ton of photos I need to do that to.

Anyways...with a little patience and retouching it does an admiral job for an "old" free piece of software.

Sorry that your previous statement about resynth being much more and gaining similar results is wrong. You can see the difference, even though it's a low-res movie.

Here is a funny comparison.

You can see the Resynth version has continuity broken in several parts that are kept in Photoshop. For example hair streaks on the left.

I really want a Resynth 2.0 that steals back from Photoshop. Because I think Photoshop took Resynth, or the paper that came with it, and improved on it.

1: Original
2: Resynth
3: Photoshop

It works better against patterns. It would be nice to see a 2.0.

LOL. My g/f would definitely not appreciate that. Looks like reactions to CS5's plugin are starting to roll out.

In the gimp plug-in repository the National Geographic plug-in is marvelous. It give photos a very interesting affect. It sharpens some tones why softening others.

There is an article on Slashdot.org today comparing Photoshop's Content-Aware Fill to GIMP's Resynthesizer:

http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&sl=pt&u=http://blog.ultradownloads.com.br/2010/05/photoshop-cs5-vs-gimp-resynthesize/

I've been doing photo restoration for 16 years and I'm very impressed with Resynthesizer for helping to speed up work. I've experimented with the plug-in but it still does not have a natural eye for detail like a person does. So many resynthesized images still need to be touched up manually to make them look natural and perfect.
