K H I downloaded this program when it was available on GOTD. Pretty amazing. Only had to try it once to know I wanted it. So glad to find it here - where I can afford to purchase it.

I have one tiny issue and I'm sure it's only because I'm so very unschooled in using any kind of graphics program. I have trouble getting rid of the rectangle/polygon box once I've edited a picture to my satisfaction. It just doesn't go away. A little more detail in the help file would be, well, helpful. Also, clicking on Redo doesn't redo. I'm using version 2.3.

m w f ...to K H,

Hit the Esc key to clear the selections....and naturally, the 'redo'
is a history function, so you would need to 'undo' first. 

Note: should you want to run the same selection again simply
hit the run arrow.

DrTeeth I tried this program the last time it was offered here and got poor results. This time, I checked out the video tutorials on the main site and saw where I was going wrong. It "does what it says on the tin" and after a quick demo registered immediately. I'm sorry I did not register earlier, it's brilliant.

Teorex - Nov 9 2010 at 11:30am Copy Link

Louis H How many of these type programs do I need anyway?

Apparently as many as I can afford to purchase.

Seriously....

I have about 5 or 6 dedicated tools that do the same type of effect and each of them has their pros and cons. I really do like what has changed in Version 3 of Inpaint and I most definitely appreciate the short and to the point easy to follow video tutorials provided.

I worked with Version 2 in the past (freebie from GiveAwayOftheDay) and was not all that satisfied with it.

I ran a few photos through both V2 and V3 and see clear improvements with V3 and will indeed pick up a copy when the offer goes Live next Thursday.

It works best when the background it is using as the palette to fill in the blank with is consistent with itself, (such as snow, or sky, or trees, grass, rocks, sand, etc.,) and you may need to touch up some areas a second or third time, but for those photos where there is a fairly consistent background to use as a palette for "inpainting" the object to be removed, it works great.

But, as always, folks are encouraged to give it a test run to see if it does for your photos what you want it to do.

additional caveat....

It works best, for me at least, with backgrounds that do not require high resolution results. Slightly blurry or out-of-focus backgrounds do great, but in-focus backgrounds that have a fairly consistent texture to them, as mentioned above, do well in version 3.

Mitch Kite I will definitely be purchasing Inpaint and here's why:
This summer, I went to an air show. One of the coolest photos I took was of an F/A-18 Super Hornet taking off almost vertically. As fate would have it, part of the plane was blocked by a large pole. My great shot was ruined!

I tried several software packages that remove unwanted objects and overall they didn't seem to work that well, were extremely slow, difficult to use and even cost way too much. It's possible that with practice they might work just fine, but in my opinion, a steep learning curve is hardly worth it.

Tonight I tried Inpaint. I wasn't expecting much, but Inpaint did a spectacular job removing the pole! My great shot was saved!

When testing out new software, I usually try to not read any directions. After all, if it is not intuitive, I probably don't want to use it. Well, I must say that Inpaint easily removed the pole and saved the day. It took me about 10 minutes to get the result I wanted. Very impressive!

Judith Steele ok, I have a very old photo of my husbands grandmother and aunt and uncle. Where they had it in and old album, it lifted the
film , leaving white bloches. Will this fix it?
Nov 8 2010 at 8:21am Copy Link
0
Louis H Depends on the nature of what was originally in those white blotches.

If it was faces or parts of faces, something very specific in detail, then the answer, at least from my experience with the program, is most likely no.

Inpaint studies the area surrounding the object you are removing from the photo - in your case - white blotches. It then fills in the area once occupied by the object being removed with a pretty good estimate of how the background would look if the object being removed was not there to begin with. It works best when specific details in the background are not required. It cannot fill in something that is not already present for it to analyze. It cannot "paint" in a face that is no longer there. It CAN paint, or blend in, missing areas of a background as long as it has some of that original background to work with, and as long as that background is fairly "simple" - such as a wall, or group of trees, or sky. (Sorry if my explanation is not clear or helpful.)

Best way to find out if it can help your specific photograph is to download the trial and test it out.

Louis H @Jimi Le - good question about whether or not a business license will also be available at a discount. I had not even paid attention to there being two different licenses versions. Based on the price shown above, I am assuming this is for a version 3 Personal license. (at least V3 is what I got when I downloaded the trial version.) Hopefully someone from Teorex will let us know the answer about the business license option.

DrTeeth I will be buying as I have v2.4, and the discount here is better than the 50% I would get as a 'registered user upgrade'.

TBH, I will be buying on faith as the product's site is very scant on what has changed from v2.4 to 3...' Inpaint algorithm improvements
and Whole program optimization' is not enough detail. Without the BDJ offer, I probably wouldn't bother.

Glen Hilton Very poor results obtained with detailed - complex areas, This is an overpriced, basic one trick pony that needs further development for professional results. The video confirmed the limited options with specially selected examples; Better to use a good image editor with a copy- repairing brush and layers which could well be quicker and certainly more appealing (especially in enlargements) than fixing an important family photo with a poor quality makeover . .

Louis H Glen... at $40, you are right that it is an overpriced basic one trick pony, but for $16 AND the reality that I am not a professional photographer, it's worth adding to my toolbox. For what I need it for it does fine, actually. (more diffuse backgrounds - slightly blurry most of the time.)

As to fixing important family photos, you are again right about Inpaint not being the best choice IF one is going to be printing copies. If one is simply working with digital copies - with low detail backgrounds surrounding areas needing work or objects in need of removal - then it can indeed be helpful - and certainly more cost effective - as an option.

Inpaint is NOT a high level professional solution. And it is not for every photo in need of this type of one trick pony. But for what it does and can do, it's worth a purchase for me.

Henrik Safegaard I have tried both.
Photoupz is when you get skils in it, more accurate but one have to practice. Inpaint is easier but dont have the same possibility to control more complex cut outs. It surely work fine in the easy part of taking things out of a picture but i prefers Photoupz.

Hovever, For this mony its a great deal and it would do most jobs. AND it has no learning curve, a 5 year old can do this.

Colin Pritchard I bought Photoupz as well last week and have downloaded and tried this. I think I prefer this one. They both word extremely well when the background of the object being removed is very plain and regular, grass or sky or snow say. They are not so good with complex mixed backgrounds.

I'm just about to buy this one to add to Photoupz.. I can afford the apparent duplication at this price.

Tom Woot Own and worked with both. As mentioned above, both are sensitive to type of background.

PhotoUpz works better extending lines or linear elements covered by the object to be removed. The direction and amount of extension is under your control using the line/direction tool.

Somtimes, Inpaint has better results with the removal of elements that have hard to define edges, thanks to the background/foreground tool.

In general, both work better in several passes.

SoftCollector I have tried it - not bad.

Depending on the type of background and scaling, "inprinting" can be less or more visible. For consumer use it will do the job in most cases, as long as you do not need to make a large print, where "in printing" will be in most cases impossible to hide.

I do not like the limitation of the trial - you cannot save the edited image and a pop-up question asks sneakily: "Buy now?" That feels a little cheap and unnecessary, but I guess, with each of us having just 2-3 photos he would like to touch-up, if saving was aloud no one would have bought it.

Also: the interface looks rather frugal and photo navigation needs to be improved (currently you have to mostly use the sliders),

HJ B This appears to be inpaint 3.0. As far as I can see, the version number is not noted in the bitsdujour promotion.

The author says that the policy is that upgrades within major versions (for example 2 to 2.5) are free to license holders. However, I do not see in the promotion or at the author's website a mention of how such free upgrades are obtained.

I own version 3.0, and it is not clear from the website whether any modified version has been issued,

Bruce I have ver 3.1 (from a past deal on another site).
While the product seemed to work OK (some objects remove much better than others, just depends...), what I was hoping for was a way to blur or smooth the edges of the removed area. As sometimes the removal left a rather obvious cutout edge.

I looked on the site and no mention of this feature.
It would be good to have it in the app, rather than using this to remove, then saving and having to reopen in another photo tool app just to do the edge blur-blend.

Is there or will there be such a blur/blend feature?
(and is it likely to be within the 4.x release range that the Policy tab says will be included in today's purchase.)

Jul 16 2012 at 2:42am Copy Link

Phil Tobin In answer to Amit:

IResizer does have some similar features to Inpaint.

The underlying principle of both was first revealed in a research paper published in 2007 by Arial Shamir and Shai Avidan entitled: "Seam Carving for Content-Aware Image Resizing."

In that SIGGRAPH paper, the authors demonstrated how their new algorithm was capable of transforming images during post-editing in such a way as to make the unobtrusive removal or resizing of visual elements a far easier task than had previously been possible.

These two pioneers encouraged Open Source enthusiasts to build on their research, and in early follow-up work, developer Gabe Rudy successfully created a front-end for the new algorithm. He gave it the accurate, if less than catchy title:

"Seam Carving GUI."

Working independently, another Open Source developer, Joe Nantz, set about refining the Shamir-Avidan algorithm. He came up with CAIR:

"Content Aware Image Resizer."

What CAIR does, and how it does it, is explained in a quick-to-read, easy-to-understand, illustrated walk-through on his little website:

https://sites.google.com/...ecall/cair

Joe drew Gabe’s attention to his work, and Gabe revised his Seam Carving GUI accordingly. The latest versions are still entirely free of charge and still available on small, fast downloads for both Windows PCs and Mac from:

http://code.google.com/p/...rving-gui/

You or anyone else who might be thinking of spending money on this kind of software, whether at the full price or at some kind of discount, might best be advised to first download and install the freeware apps and then download trial versions of the Teorex products and compare them.

I have.

I have been unable to discover what, if anything, this Russian company has ever contributed to the Open Source development of seam carving / content aware image resizing.

In actual usage, I have been unable to detect any meaningful difference between the product range for which Teorex seeks to charge an often high retail price, and the Sourceforge apps which Open Source developers continue to provide free of charge.

But perhaps your experience of using and comparing the Sourceforge free with the Teorex paid-for may be different.

John H I purchased Inpaint during the last deal and am very happy with it.

Looking at the two websites for the Open Source projects, I would have no clue what the purpose of those projects is.

I like to support the Open Source Community but Teorex got this product to me where I was totally unaware of what was available through open source.

I have a long purchasing checklist of Open Source and free software sources to go through before I pay money for any software. I did not come across the mentioned open source programs nor would I have even known what to look for.

The one thing I learned when I took my elective computer programing course is that programers can be brilliant at writing code and yet fail at every other aspect that make software usable and accessible.

If Inpaint is based on an Open Source project, I would hope Mr. Gapechenko contributes a meaningful percentage of the profits to the Open Source project. Yes, he does deserve compensation for making me aware of and getting the product to me. If not for Inpaint, I would still be wasting time using my clone tools to fix my photos.

Phil Tobin @ John H: If you're happy to pay for commercialware, then that's your choice and no-one would argue with it.

All Sourceforge freeware offerings have download buttons / links to click on without need of first reading, or understanding, the often complex research effort invested by the original Open Source non-commercial developers. Thereafter, it's a straightforward task to simply contrast and compare any paid-for software with any free software that does exactly the same thing.

Gerald Montgomery @Phil Tobin Great information. Thank you!

I down loaded the Seam Carving GUI windows installation program. The version was 1.11 and installation was simple. I did one quick test and removed a date stamp from a relatively high resolution photo.

I did the exact same thing with Inpaint. The highlighting to remove the date and other GUI elements was identical. Additonal Inpaint GUI elements though were more sophisticated. The Seam Carving application was in turn much faster removing the time stamp.

Without comparing the two results against the original, they both did the job. But by far the resulting image that most matched the original photo was done with this version of Inpaint! No fragments of the date remained for either but the Seam Carving GUI significantly changed the underlying image.

Not sure why. It's very possible the Seam Carving GUI installation was a dated version of the technology. But it was the latest offered on the link.

Bottom line is, give them a test. Your results may vary depending in part on what exactly you're removing and photograph differences.

Personally, since the results were so dramatic, I'm going to buy this to have it as option.

Husker Tech Inpaint is more akin to the Resynthesizer plugin for Photoshop than Iresizer. Even though it has less functionality than Resynthesizer, it is a good value at $10 for those that dont own Photoshop or have the time to mess with open source software. However, this would be even a better application if it had an outline & fill tool - or perhaps it does and I haven't found it.

This is a good product. I was lucky enough to try it when it was offered on Giveaway of the Day. But I don't want to buy it and then get an e-mail a short time after the new year begins letting me know that there is a new version out that I could have patiently waited for.

Captain B I purchased InPaint this afternoon and received registration email. However every attempt to download the program from http://www.theinpaint.com...tSetup.exe is blocked by Trend Micro security on my computer. What to do?

ylluminate So disappointing that no one will give me an answer. As noted YESTERDAY, we cannot purchase only the MultiView version at a discount and remove the other one from the shopping cart: http://cl.ly/image/270x3M3P3M1a

Why won't anyone reply with some help?

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.

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.

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.

Whaaat?
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.

Ricky Rick What version is being offered?

I have V3.0 already - and it's a GREAT little program. Really like it a whole lot!

If the offer here is other than V3.0 -- in the latest version can you now PASTE a picture into the program?

This program works wonders IMHO. It does one thing and does it VERY WELL!

Ricky Rick Maxim - Thank you for the version number

- BUT - can a Picture be "Copied & Pasted" into the program?

If not - it is a serious feature to consider on your next update/upgrade.

Love the program though. It does magical things that turn out looking fantastic.

Chris @ Ricky Rick ~ you can't copy & paste, but you can drag & drop, which is much faster IMO.

The only bad thing is they use PayProGlobal as their payment processor, which makes it impossible for me to purchase as they will NOT process my orders and only tell me to send them a wire transfer.

Ricky Rick @ Chris and others ...

YES - you can paste in a picture from the clipboard with this V6.2 of Inpaint. I just bought the program a little while ago.

Also @ Chris - I had no problem ordering as I paid with PayPal which then went thru PayProGlobal without a single problem.

Under EDIT in this V6.2 it has "Paste from Clipboard". Tried it and works fine.

NOTE: I already had V3.0 of Inpaint on my Win 7 Pro 64 bit OS -- and installed V6.2 thinking it would install on top of V3.0 -- or automatically uninstall V3.0. Turns out that I now have both versions on my OS and they both work fine.

When I look in the Program Files on Drive C: ... it shows a version of Inpaint in the 64 bit program folder and in the x86 Program folder.

Also ... when I looked in Revo Uninstaller it only shows 1 version of Inpaint that can be uninstalled and it's V3.0 -- there's no V6.2 in there. Strange seeing how 2 different versions of Inpaint are installed.

HOWEVER -- in the Control Panel "uninstall a program" it does show both versions of Inpaint.

Chris @ Ricky Rick ~ thank for the heads up on paste from clipboard, as for PayProGlobal, at one time they used to process my orders as I have receipts from them. The thing now is they never will process it. I have tried all cc's and PayPal, but I get email from them telling me they can't accept that form of payment, but if I do a wire transfer that they would send serials, etc, as soon as they received it. I will never do a wire transfer because I get charged even more money for doing so, which would make this, or any deal, not a deal.

Jim Buchanan This is another great little program. It takes some time to figure out exactly how to use the brushes and which way to move them. Very similar to the 'blur' tool in Photoshop 3 which I had a long time ago. If you brush it one way the pixels of the part really close can be carried over and cause a mess. Reset and swipe it in the opposite direction being careful not to touch a different colour. I finally bought the program outright as I like to fix up photos to my liking. That's enough of a recommendation at this time.
