Remove unwanted objects from photos.

Overview

Inpaint photo restoration software, reconstructs the selected image area from the pixels near the area boundary. Delete any unwanted objects from your photo, such as power-lines, people, text, or anything else. The program will automatically "inpaint" the selected area to erase it.

Ok, tested this against Photoshop's Content-Aware Fill on some same pictures. I found Inpaint's interface to be pretty dreadful. It's looks like it was barely ported over from Windows to Mac. Aside from those terrible aesthetic issues, it also doesn't use standard Mac shortcuts for the tools either. For example, command + or - doesn't zoom in & out. It says it's supposed to if you look under "View" and observe the shortcuts, but pressing those keys does nothing so I'm forced to click the clunky icons to zoom in and out that look like they are from Windows XP hell (saving is with a an old 3.5 floppy disk icon). Also zooming happens in much larger steps than Photoshop, so don't expect to zoom to an ideal size to fit perfectly in your window/display unless you get lucky. You can adjust the size of the brush to select the area you want to erase with the content aware fill with a sliding dot on a line, but there's no feedback to how large or small the brush is exactly until you use it. Super-clunk. Performance. Sadly, you also get clunkier, blockier results than Photoshop's content-aware fill which is smoother on edges. I had hoped using the guidelines to define edges would have given Inpaint "the edge" over Photoshop in results, but in my testing it was just more steps to get the same result but clunkier and less natural results than Photoshop, so that was a disappointment. I was hoping in the end this would be a scrappy alternative to Photoshop's content-aware fill with better results with more custom tools (like the Guide Lines), but this hasn't been my experience. On HUGE plus side, this thing is only 20 bucks and while the results aren't as natural/smooth as you get with Photoshop, it definitely works and if you don't mind a little more cloning/retouching to fix up its results than you would have to do with Photoshop's results then this a great alternative to spending a bunch of money on Photoshop and instead use this in conjunction with free Gimp, etc. Then gain, GIMP has a plug-in for content-aware fill already so you might want to test that out first. GIMP's plug-in (called resynthesizer) is more clunky to use than Photoshop's content-aware fill, but it's free like GIMP is and does work in OS X. resynthesizer was doing this before adobe too, but I don't know if resynthesizer gets better results or not since I haven't used it. But, anyway... if you don't want to go through the hassle of installing GIMP and resynthesizer and you can't purchase Photoshop, there's this for 20 bucks. The results are certainly not horrible. The interface is clunky as it is ugly, but it DOES work.

Beware of this developer: Why hasn't version 7 been released through the App Store? Why is there no upgrade discount for purchasers of version 6? Answer: The developer wants more and more of our money.

Today Snapheal is on sale at the Mac App Store for $5. In recent weeks it has been $10. I bought Inpaint 5 and 6 on the Mac App Store.. Inpaint 6 seems to be the same as Inpaint 5, so I paid twice. Today, the Inpaint Mac App Store version is 6.0 while 6.2 is available directly from the developer. Why didn't version 6.1 make it to the Mac App Store? Look before you leap

Please note that this update now requires a minimum of 10.7 (as noted above in the system requirements). View this as important, as when I updated my version 4 to version 5 of Inpaint, it still supported Snow Leopard (10.6). Seems that midway through this numbered version, the developer dropped support for 10.6. Had I known this was going to happen, I might not have upgraded earlier this year and just stayed with my version 4 of Inpaint. That said, for as often as I use the program (which is not all that frequently), my Snow Leopard supported version (5.2) does what I need it to do.

I too have the MAS version 4.7. Feeling a bit put out that it is lagging behind the non-MAS version. And no info on when it will hit the store and whether it will be a free upgrade.

If you bought 4.4 or 4.5, for months there is no way to update, and it doesn't take Apple all that time to review an app. I just try Snapheal which is far better and cheaper, I recommend everybody to switch.

While not typically as critical in reviews I'm making an exception to this one. While inconvenient enough that the app offers no built-in, intuitive way to retrieve updates (much less invoke the download/install process) that I could find, their website clearly shows version 4.7 to be the most current. I had the Pro version 4.4 on my Snow Leopard MBP. The system requirements on the web page also clearly stated that 10.6 was needed as minimum. So I installed the *only* choice of versions from that page (again, no assistance from the app or vendor's site to denote upgrade policy). During the installation mode I noticed there hadn't been the alert of whether I wished the current install to replace or not an existing one. As a result there were not one but two Inpaint icons in the applications folder. It gets better: according to the "Get Info" window for the just-installed app the version is not 4.7 (the one whose Icons initiated the download/install process) but 4.5 Developer-----are you getting any of this??
