    Post Using Gimp and the Resynthesizer Plugin to get the pattern out

    I have previously mentioned the Resynthesizer plugin for gimp. and its ability to remove areas of an image and re-synthesize the patch.

    bootchk recently posted a fix to the Smart remove selection script that used the resynth plugin (but was broken) over at the gimp plugin registry.

    I have figured out a nice way of eliminating that repeated texture look with this plugin.

    Starting with a very obviously tiled pattern (Electric blue in the gimp default patterns):

    Create a new layer and fill it with solid noise. Pick a size around the same as the pattern tiling. Then threshold the noise:

    Select the white area, then make the pattern the active layer, and run the Filters>Enhance>Heal Selection on it. Select the "radius to take selection from" at about the same size as the original pattern width.

    Invert the selection, and rerun the filter (ctrl-f).

    Invert the selection one more time and run it a third time:

    Here is another sample starting with a clover pattern:

    Post Gimp Script: Resynthesized Pattern Fill

    Now a script.... (but you will still need resynthesizer, too). Unzip and drop the file in your script directory.

    And some more examples:
