Hi all,
I am new to gimp and am having trouble removing unwanted objects from digital photos. I have tried CLONE, Erasure etc, but to no avail. Where can I go to find information to remove unwanted objects from pictures. Hope someone can help.


Thanks.

Hi Dan,

There are several techniques to remove objects, mostly depending of the amount of work required and the quality desired.

1- The clone tool.
It give some very good results, but requires some experience.
An example (in French, sorry) can be seen at
http://jlhamel.club.fr/GIMP2/index.html#Retouche
(scroll down a little until you reach a section called:
"Elimination de détails génants au moyen de l'outil clone" and
you will see a traffic sign erased just with the clone tool).

2- The resynthesizer plugin.
I never used it for object removal, but all I know is it requires some CPU power. However, it can do really extraordinary things:

Some articles and blogs about it:

A tutorial

A page from the old website to demonstrate the object removal with a little details:

3- From small stuff, this thing may work:

Well, choose what suits you best ... :)

Best regards,
