Inpaint
Easily remove unwanted elements from your photos

Inpaint is an interesting tool which makes it easy to remove unwanted elements from your photos, then automatically fills the hole with textures generated from the surrounding area.

The process starts by selecting the object which is spoiling your otherwise perfect composition. And there are two ways to do this. Either you can click inside the object with the magic wand, or you can paint over it with the brush.

Next, click Edit > Inpaint, or click the Inpaint button on the toolbar (the blue "Play" triangle).

And then all you have to do is wait, while Inpaint generates background textures to (hopefully) seamlessly remove your selected object.

In our experience the program generally produces good results, although it does depend very much on the complexity of the image and the size of the object you're trying to remove (the larger it is, the more trouble you're going to be in).

If your first pass isn't a success, though, you may be able to improve things with the careful use of guide lines. Draw these along areas where there's a major change in texture - sea and sky, perhaps - and Inpaint will adjust its algorithm accordingly, usually delivering better results.

Version 6.2 (Changelog):
    ◦Improved quality of texture generation
    ◦Minor improvements

Verdict:

An easy, if slightly expensive way to remove unwanted objects from any digital image.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
