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

The github pages you refer to are programmed by (not by anyone who uploads software to the site.) You should complain directly to I agree with you, it can be confusing.

I'm receiving this error. Does anyone know a workaround?

I already extracted the files into /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/ and made them executable.

The message: "An error occured running python_fu_heal_selection"
Traceback (most recent call last):

dialog.res = run_script(params)

It's saying your resynthesizer plug-in isn't found. Did you extract all the files into your plug-ins folder?


I had a similar error in Ubuntu NN and Gimp 2.7.2.
I moved the files resynthesizer and resynthesizer-gui
for / home/ ~~ / gimp-2.7/plug-ins - and began to operate properly...

Hi! Thanks for the idea, but...
Moved only resynthesizer and resynthesizer-gui to /home/user/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/ (leaving others in /usr/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins/): didn't work.
Moved all files do /home/user/.gimp-2.6/plug-ins/: didn't work either.
Also, I tried duplicating all files in both places: no luck.

What is your system and version of Gimp ?
Is the plugin resynthesize appears in the menu GIMP [Filters / Map]?.
Have you installed the resynth or resynthesize old ?

I'm using Linux Mint 10 Julia 64-bit and GIMP 2.6.10.
Filers > Map > Resynthesize does NOT appear!
(Filters > Enhance > Heal Selection does.)
I'm trying to use this version (1.0). I have not tried with any older version - so there shouldn't be file conflicts.
(Btw, I know there is a gimp-resynthesizer 0.16 available through the software channel, but I haven't installed that.)

Nothing new I can not advise on how:
it seems that for 64-bit only option is to compile from source (and this is just the first time is tough - but are good instructions Install and Readme: )

Thanks, MareroQ!

I compiled from source (and enabled execute permission for all files) and now both "heal selection" and "resynthesize" are available on GIMP. (Of course, I'm talking about resynthesizer and resynthesizer-gui - the python files are simple text.)

So: be aware, 64-bit people! =]
