Perhaps you have a framed picture of your family on vacation; it's a perfect picture. Almost...

Everyone always asks about that one guy standing off to the side, looking out of frame. "Is that your brother?" they ask.

And you explain, "no, that's just some guy who was on the beach that day".

And then there's an uncomfortable pause. "Great picture, though," someone else chimes in politely.

It'd be a better picture if that strange guy wasn't in it!

Every picture can be improved, usually by taking something out of it: a billboard, a strip mall, traffic snares -- anything!

With Inpaint, you don't have to be digital media master to get your images exactly how you want them. No more messing around with cut and paste, drag and blur or clone and stamp functions.

For the personal and professional user, Inpaint is a standalone application that makes image manipulation simple. Inpaint lets you select an element in an image file that you want to remove and does the detail work for you. After you make your selection, Inpaint scans the pixels in the surrounding area and intelligently generates an appropriate replacement texture.

You can pull monkeys off their branches, pull birds out of the sky, tear up highways, and erase corporate logos. Get the clean professional looking images that your presentations, advertisements and photo albums deserve.

Anything is possible, and everything is simple when you work with Inpaint.

Matt Hello,

I see that the current version of Inpaint is 5.6.

Your change log has no release dates. Can you tell us when version 5 was released? And when is version 6 due for release?

I purchased version 4 here on BDJ and shortly after I purchased it, version 5 came out. I don't want to make that mistake again.

Thank you.

Louis H According to their FB page....

Version 5.6 was released on November 27th 2013.
Version 5.5 was released on September 17th 2013
Version 5.3 was released on July 14, 2013

It would be nice to know if there is any current target date for release of Version 6.

Gr3gw This is a great companion to PhotoStitcher, which creates panoramas from still images. Apart from removing unwanted parts in images, it can also fill the black areas you get when images are stitched together.

HH Bonner This really looked interesting and I wanted to order, but I do not give credit card numbers to unknown people. No Paypal, No order. Not the first time I refused to order.

Toni McConnel Everyone please note that in the sample photographs with this promo, ostensibly having elements removed, the supposed original photo has entirely different city background and even the water in pool is quite different. To put this in most polite way possible, this is not convincing and discouraged me from even trying it.

Nico Westerdale Toni, If you're talking about the cityscape behind the girl it has EXACTLY the same buildings behind it!
Look again - I think you're mistaken.

Gr3gw HHBonner, I paid by PayPal. On the first order page, the PayPal symbol is not shown but later, when the means of payment is selected, PayPal is there.

Gunderic Hagen I am interested but the Fine Print is confusing. On the one hand it says:
Inpaint is licensed per user, so if more people are going to use Inpaint you will need to purchase additional copies.
That's fine. But I want to download the software to my laptop also, still there will only be ONE USER as allowed above.

But then I read:
Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed.

Clarification please?

Johan Snijder Well Tony McConnel. I purchased the program and to get rid of words written across a subject took me 10 minutes on Gimp and only about 20 seconds on inpaint. The program is fantastic and at such a cheap price. I don't know of any other program that comes even close.

Gunderic Hagen I tried to purchase the software and got a mail from their payments platform asking for a scanned copy of my credit card, ID with photo, and a host of other things...and to send everything over the internet... Are these people for real? I told them before I do that, I need from them a copy of their CEO credit card, Photo ID and a letter from the CEO stating their outfit is not a scam....

It is really sad to see these hardworking small companies producing software and falling in the clutches of "payments platforms" that take their money and only hurt their business by complicating things for customers..

Louis H I purchased a second license for InPaint and also a copy of Photo Scissors. I was able to access PayPal to pay. I was told before I clicked continue that I would be allowed to see the full charge before completing my order. The very next screen confirmed that I had purchased the products and my order would be finalized soon.

The Price shown on that page was correct. My PayPal receipt shows the correct amount charged.

My concern is that it did not show the total price before I hit continue. Normally when this occurs PayPal forwards me to a site where I am given a final choice to confirm the order.

I trust the vendor behind these products, but unfortunately they have not been given the best of customer service from PayPro Global.

I am not sure how things may be different for folks making a purchase from other countries, but I can confirm that I was able (from The US) to make the purchase using PayPal and that I was charged the correct amount. My license keys have arrived, as well, while I was making these comments.

As to the program.... It continues to improve. It is far more accurate in it's current form then it was in the early stages of development. The Vendor has obviously invested time and skill in making improvements. It is not for every photograph, but it can do a very nice edit on those photos it does work for.

I have found that for those photos where the background is less homogenous and appears very busy, if I enlarge the photo and go slower with a more pinpoint size brush to identify the areas I want removed, and from which areas to inpaint from, it does so much better than earlier version.

I agree with you, Nico, about the photo of the young woman used in the ad copy as an example. I see NO additional alterations other than the removal of the other people in the water. The Cityscape in the background is the same in both images, as is the body of water. I think where it may appear to Toni to be different is that in the smaller - retouched - photo, the perspective is different. The larger is seen straight on - the smaller from an angle. If one takes time to actually draw lines from various points on the young woman's body (such as her shoulder or elbow) to perpendicular points behind her, they match up with the same buildings in the background in both photos.

Perhaps a better example would have been a side by side comparison, like the other examples, rather than a PIP approach. (I write that in case the vendor reads this and wishes to consider the suggestion.)

Gr3gw My experience of paying by PayPal was the same as Louis H's. Not the author's fault but something between PayPro Global and PayPal. The transaction went through correctly. Don't let this glitch put you off.
