Inpaint not bad, for cheap software

Postby videojim » Sat May 12, 2012 3:56 pm

The paint software InPaint, intro'd at MGT is a nice addition to the toolkit. It is very cheap for paint software, so it has its limitations, but it will work well for the user who works with a smaller brush, and expects less than perfect results sometimes. I cleaned some wires out of the sky on a picture of the St. Lous Arch, and it gave me some trouble, until I decided to stick with a smaller number of pixels per stroke. Give it too many pixels to clean up, and it chokes, so go slow, keep each step small, and it will work well. DON'T mix high contrast backgrounds, if possible. I knocked out wires against the sky, and then wires against the arch separately.
Its cheap software, compared with CS6, its dirt cheap, so give it some slack, not to much to do any one stroke, and it might be able to do a decent job!

I have never seen Inpaint. Does it work on one frame only or does it work on video. If the former, what will it do that Akaba cannot?

Ian, its for stills only. It replaces a pixel with surrounding pixels, but don't ask too much of it. It'll work, but takes a lot of patience to get wires, other unwanted items out of a picture.
Google the name inpaint, and download it from the site. License is only $20 US.
