Trying to Install 'Resynthesizer', Gimp2.8, Win7
Posted 14 August 2012 - 10:49 AM
Are there any clear and simple instructions I could follow, or could someone set me right please?
I'm really looking forward to using these tools and Gimp's reputation is very good. I also love the "Grokking The Gimp" Manual so my expectations are high.

not really that is for Windows XP.
Could be the resynth version & you don't say if you are using Win7 32 bit or 64 bit. The only Win7 I have is a 32bit VM. Should be similar for 64bit.
A few surprising results for the various resynthesizer versions. 0.16 works but picks up totally the wrong areas same with an "installer" version. This one works here;
and if you look down the reference page http://registry.gimp.org/node/25219 almost at the end, there is a reference to a 64 bit version.
Installing: Download the zip, Win will open a zip as a folder. Copy the 3 files resynthesizer, resynthesizer-gui & plugin-heal-selection.py file to your C:\Users\<your_name>\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins That's the installation.

Using it: Make your selection. The python plugin is in menu Filters -> Enhance -> Heal Selection.
Looks like this, a bit too easy using a beach for the test.

Grokking the Gimp - very old so read between the lines, for example the Gimp interface has changed a lot. Still a handy reference
