Resynthesizer 0.14 - for Gimp 2.x - 25 April 2005
- Source: resynthesizer-0.14.tar.gz
This version adds a couple of new parameters, neighbourhood size and search thoroughness, that let you trade off speed with quality.

This version uses a new robust goodness-of-fit metric to produce higher quality output. It might be said to have a certain degree of common sense.

To install this, I am told you just need to move the plug-ins to "where they belong" (this can also be accomplished with "make install").
This version uses a completely new algorithm from previous versions. It is very much faster, and gives better results. Requires Gimp 2.0, g++.
This is the last version that used the old, slow algorithm:

- Compiled Windows version: resynthesizer-0.10-bin.zip (thanks to Michael Schumacher)
Unzip this into the personal gimp directory (something like C:\Documents and Settings\MYNAME\.gimp-2.0), keeping the folder structure intact.
The tar-balls/zips above also include a number of scripts that use Resynthesizer: an image enlargement script that extrapolates an image's texture to a finer scale (eg from this to this), an image sharpening script that works along similar lines, and a script that erases the current selection by extending surrounding texture to cover it.
Version 0.10 added some algorithm tweaks, including use of the L2 norm rather than L1 and an extra refinement pass. Versions 0.10 and 0.11 are therefore slightly different to what I described in my conference paper.
I also wrote a companion utility, Homogenizer, which removes gradients from images (eg from this to this). The old Resynthesizer worked better on textures without large gradients. For Gimp-1.3, homogenizer-0.5.tar.gz. For Gimp-1.2, homogenizer-0.4.tar.gz. This is not so necessary with the new version.
