How To Install Resynthesizer plugin’s in GIMP 2.10 in Windows 10


Today we are going to show how to install a very useful Gimp script called Resynthesizer. What is Resynthesizer? Resynthesizer is a Gimp plug-in for texture synthesis. Given a sample of a texture, it can create more of that texture. Similar to Photoshop Heal tool. For repairing scanned torn photographs in GIMP this is a no brain er set of tools to install.

What Does Resynthesizer Include?

The package includes:

  • resynthesizer plugin engine (without a GUI)
  • resynthesizer-gui plugin control panel for the engine
  • various plugins (in Python language) that call the resynthesizer engine. See below.

Python Scripts Included – Retouch. Like the heal tool, but automatic. Replaces the selection to look like its surroundings. In menu Filters > Enhance > Heal selection – Like above, but you don’t need to select anything, it heals every transparent pixel. In menu Filters > Enhance > Heal transparency – Transfer the ‘style’ of one image to another. In menu Filters > Map > Style. – Creates a new image having the texture from another image. In other words, a seamless, irregular wallpaper (if the source image is smaller.) In menu Filters > Render > Texture. – Enlarge (increase the resolution) and sharpen. Might restore more plausible detail than simple scaling up and using other sharpens. In menu Filters > Enhance > Enlarge & sharpen – Similar to Render > Texture. Fills with an irregular pattern from another image. In menu Filters > Edit > Fill with pattern seamless. – A variant of sharpening that might give more plausible detail. In menu Filters > Enhance > Sharpen – Makes the canvas larger and heals the new transparent border. Not exactly the inverse of cropping, but almost: reconstructs what might have been cropped earlier. In menu Filters > Enhance > Uncrop



Note: For this instance we will be installing only 64-bit version.

First step is to download from here

Extract the zip file.

Take the two files w64/resynthesizer.exe w64/resynthesizer-gui.exe and the python scripts and copy to the Gimp user profile plug-ins folder (C:\Users\”yourname”\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins)

Start Gimp and the plugins will be added.

  1. Thanks but I can’t make this work. Is it because the link refers to Gimp 1.0 files?
