This is a suite of revised and new resynthesizer plugins.

I have assumed maintenance of the Resynthesizer from the original author Paul Harrison.

This is version 1.0.

The source is now at (a public repository like SourceForge). Search for user "bootchk", repository "resynthesizer." For more information, see the README and ChangeLog and NEWS files there (you don't have to download them.)

!!! The attached executables are Linux files. DO NOT download them for Windows. Also do NOT download the Python scripts for Windows (they won't work with the old resynthesizer.exe.) I have built the resynthesizer and tested on Windows, but have not finished an installer for Windows. If you are adept at building, download the source and build Windows executables yourselves.

A short summary of changes for users is:
- bugs are fixed
- alpha-agnostic: less hassle with alpha channels
- its bundled: most plugins that use the resynthesizer

For programmers:
- rewritten in C and Python, in Gimp style
- GNU build tool makefiles
- engine separated from the GUI control panel

I got hit with that problem as well.

You still have an older version of the plugin (probably called resynth.exe) still installed, and that is getting called. The plugin was changed to an invert is not needed in some situation. (That was what was messing up the image of the window removal I posted up above).

Once I removed the older version it was fine.

Also, for those without python, here is a hacked version of smart-remove.scm that should work for any version of resynthesizer (it checks the parameter count and the date and hopefully does the right things) based on bootch's version posted here at the registry.

I've changed the name to "SF Heal Selection" so it wouldn't conflict with the python one.

Tests with Gimp 2.6.11 32 bits and Python 32 bits 2.6.6 (Windows 7 64 bits) look good...

Just tried it on another PC. I can confirm I managed to get it working with Python 2.6.6 but not with that older Python version 2.5.2, perhaps a reminder to people to update python before installing.

Apart from that, works very well. Definite improvement on speed. Thanks for all your hard work and your prompt reply - Power to your elbow! as they say.

Just as long they don't exceed the 2.6.x version of Python. Python 2.7 and higher is not compatible with 2.6.x GIMP.

Thanks Samj; downloading it now. Just a little concerned that the healing Script-fu may not work anymore so keeping .16 around just in case. :)

I can understand why you would want to keep it (I am keeping it for an old texturizer script) but the new Heal Selection works far better.


I think it is not necessary to keep the old version.
The new plug-in in Python work well.

The source is now at (a public repository like SourceForge). Search for user "bootchk", repository "resynthesizer." )"

EDIT now github search works, exact link is

github search was just not working, so i tried google advanced search but with no much joy, several results (including a reyinthesizer fork called" unufo") but nothing leading to your pages .
Shortly ...please , could you add the exact link?

syncronicity ? i was editing my post, at soon i finished i saw your message pop out
yes, there... i think was some temporary quirk of the side search
