Adobe's "Magic" Is Gimp's Old Plug-In
Suddenly the graphics world is all atwitter about this miraculous new feature they're previewing in Photoslop. A Photoslop team guy has a video up with a "sneak preview" of what they're calling "Content-Aware Fill." As soon as I saw it, I remembered some plug-in that I'd tried in Gimp long ago, but couldn't remember what it was.
Then I saw the Real Uqbar post about Gimp's resynthesizer, and the light went on again. Here's the home of the resynthesizer plug-in, and here's a Gimp resynthesizer tutorial, just one of many.
On Ubuntu, I installed gimp-resynthesizer from Synaptic and was up in seconds. But what is resynthesizer good for?
