GIMP Resynthesizer

2010-07-14 Comments off

I’ve been pretty amused by the buzz about the new “Content Aware Crop” feature in PhotoShop. It never occurred to me that it wouldn’t have that feature because I’ve used Open Source tools to do the same thing for years.

The bench really distracted from the composition of this image so I simply used the Resynthesizer plug-in for GIMP to remove it.

  • Free select tool to “lasso” the bench.
  • Filters -> Enhance -> Smart Remove Selection.
  • Done

Recent Portraits

I’ve been working on my photography quite a bit this year and feel like my images have progressed dramatically from what I’ve learned. I’m finding I enjoy doing portraits and have done a few shoots recently for friends and family. I hope you enjoy them.

They are an example of what can be achieved with only Open Source software. To achieve the same results using proprietary solutions would require spending well more than $1000 on software alone. Instead these and more are available in the standard Fedora repositories. All I had to do was click on “System -> Administration -> Add/Remove Software” and look through the “Graphics” packages. It couldn’t be any easier!

See the tools I use and more pictures after the jump!
