I dont know how to install Resynthesizer in gimp.I want Resynthesizer for editing my images.Anyone please help


For GIMP <= 2.8 the "Resynthesizer" plugin together with other scripts and tools (including the brilliant tool "Heal Selection") can easily be installed with the package gimp-plugin-registry

From the shell:

sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry

For Gimp >= 2.10 the plugin-registry and with it the resynthesizer and heal-selection plugins may not (yet) be available. Until we have access to these tools again we need to put the plugins

  • resynthesizer
  • resynthesizer_gui
  • plugin-heal-selection.py

to any of the defined plugin folders. I recommend ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins in our HOME.

We can get these either from compiling the source from the project's home page or from downloading an Ubuntu DEB file a release of the plugin-registry for GIMP 2.8 matching our architecture to extract above files. I tested these to still work on GIMP 2.10.6.

  • No longer included in the package as of May 09 '14; at least not in version 3.5.4-1 for Ubuntu 12.04. Hope this saves other users some time. – JeanSibelius May 9 '14 at 11:35

    Still there in later releases. You may have to upgrade Gimp to 2.8 to get it working then. See askubuntu.com/questions/134035/… – Takkat May 9 '14 at 11:45

Here is a link: http://registry.gimp.org/node/27986

Basicly you download file and extract it, after that you copy it into your gimp plug-ins folder.

Folder location: Go to your home folder, press Ctrl+H, search for .gimp2.x folder (x is nuber of your gimp version) then search for plug-ins folder.

  • Is the link still alive? I can't reach anything by this address... – dKab Oct 1 '18 at 18:11
