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

GIMP Version: 
Code License: 


Resynthesizer has always been available in my builds from for Windows 64-bit and 32-bit. In case you prefer other Gimp builds, I provide a set of Useful Plugins (for photography) which includes resynthesizer. If you have any questions, leave me an email here, on my site, or

BTW, it's also available in my Mac builds McGimp.

This is the Windows version: with GIMP 2.8.2/4.

- copy and paste the files into your plug-ins folder
for win7: in c:\users\[Your User Name]\.gimp-2.8\plugins
for XP: in c:\Documents and Settings\[your user name]\.gimp-2.8\plug-ins\

and restart GIMP

I am confused. This link opens up some bizarre picture and an ad in French for holidays in Quebec... Thanks.

That's not normal, it should be the site of aljacom. It looks it has been hacked.

It's not hacked the site has closed the entrance to gimp
Le site sur Gimp est fermé. "

So, does anyone else have this file? Hard to believe that there is no other source... Thanks.

Look here: the original. I couldn't find the windows executable either. If you cannot find it here I have it for you.

Yes, I would appreciate it very much if you could help me. But since I am not the only one who is looking for this, it would be best if you could put it somewhere for everyone interested to download. Thanks a lot.

Look here: it contains the resynthesizer plugin and more. You can also try Partha's place: (useful plugins) I believe it contains also the resynthesizer plugin.

I will try to contact Bootchk to put a windows compiled version on Github.

(edit 15/03/2013)
Bootchk has placed the compiled windows version on the registry:

Fantastic! Thanks a lot!
