Gimp 2.10.9 resynthesizer

Post by Silver Surfer » Tue Jan 22, 2019 7:54 am

Hi Guys,
Silver Surfer needs your help again!
I have installed gimp 2.10.9 as an Appimage and made it executable. It runs fine but I had hoped it would have included the "Resynthesizer plugin", but it seems not.
Can anybody help me as to how can I install the resynthesizer plugin. See signature line for my Linuxmint setup, and don't forget I'm a Geriatric linux novice.

Hope you can help Guys.

That plugin comes with the package gimp-plugin-registry, which is in the standard repos for MInt 17.3, which is what I'm using on this machine. I don't know how compatible that is with the appimage version, Linux lacks backwards compatibility compared to Windows in general.

If this plugin is that important I might consider using the regular repo version unless the newer appimage has some features you really need. Sometimes appimages do work better than the repo version, I use one for Avidemux, but I don't think that's all that common really.

Supposedly the version here has resynthesizer:
https://github.com/aferrero2707/gimp-appimage/releases

Keep in the mind that the pieces (functions) of resynthesizer are "all over the place" in the menus rather than all under something like "resynthesizer", where you can find them easily; you might have them and not know it. Check the resynth website to see where they are in the menus.

I added the Resynthesizer plugin to ~/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins. I think there is an issue with them working in 2.10, but I have not had any problems using them other than they are painfully slow on my machine.

Andrea Ferrero, the person responsible for the GIMP AppImage, might be persuaded to add the plug-ins (or give you a reason why he can't). I think there is a way to contact him on the site. Also he has a Patreon page, if you are inclined to show some financial support to his projects.

if you want to use any gimp-plugin-registry which resynthesizer is part of you'll need to use gimp 2.8

Hi "Silver Surfer",

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

There are 2 different AppImages available some with the plugins and some without them. Choose one with the plugins and use that.

+1 for BenTrabetere comment too. You can copy all the related plugins into the Gimp Plugins folder, give permission to run them.

Hi "Silver Surfer",

I just noticed that my Gimp 2.10.9 AppImage with plugins did not seem to have all the "resynthesizer" options like Enhance -> Heal, etc... I am currently using "GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181108-x86_64.AppImage"

I have attached an archive file with the "resynthesizer" and "Lensfun" plugins to this reply. Save the "Gimp_2.10.9_plug-ins.tar.gz" file, open your file manager, select the archive file and copy, then show hidden files, browse into your "/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/" folder and paste it, then right-click extract here, select all the files (ctrl+a), right-click -> properties, permissions tab make sure you have read and write access (view and modify) and check executable, apply ok, restart GImp.

FYI: This would work for Linux Mint 19.x users as well using Gimp v2.10.9 installed from the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" if the existing "resynthesizer" plugin did not have all the options just copy the archive into the normal Gimp user configuration folder (/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/) and extract it there, check permissions, restart Gimp).

Also, for some reason today I could not download their newest Gimp AppImage file?
GIMP Resynthesizer Plugin Suite wrote:Provides these menu items in the GIMP Filter menu:

Enhance>Heal selection... Retouch. Like the heal tool, but automatic. Replaces the selection to look like its surroundings. Probably the most popular and useful.

Enhance>Heal transparency... Like above, but you don't need to select anything, it heals every transparent pixel.

Enhance>Uncrop... 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.

Enhance>Sharpen by synthesis... A variant of sharpening that might give more plausible detail.

Enhance>Enlarge & sharpen... Enlarge (increase the resolution) and sharpen. Might restore more plausible detail than simple scaling up and using other sharpens.

Map>Resynthesize... A control panel. The hardest to understand, but the most powerful. Displays every control of the Resynthesizer engine. Here, you can experiment with other uses of the algorithm. The other plugins are simplified, special uses of this plugin.

Map>Style... transfer the 'style' of one image to another.

Render>Texture.. Creates a new image having the texture from another image. In other words, a seamless, irregular wallpaper (if the source image is smaller.) (You can also use Map>Resynthesize to create tiles, and then you can create a regular but seamless pattern.)

Edit>Fill with pattern seamless... (In the Edit menu, not the Filter menu.) Somewhat similar to Render>Texture. Fills with an irregular pattern from another image. From RobA.

Hope this helps ...

Hi phd21,

Good to hear from you again.
Alas, as you know from our previous communications, I am now 82 years old, and “Oh Dear!” the brain is saying "Do we still have to solve problems?"
Despite telling it “YES”, it is being non-compliant, or am I misunderstanding your instructions.

As I am running Gimp 2.10.9 direct from my downloads folder having made it executable. As I understand it, it is not actually permanently installed, which is probably why I get the following when I enter /.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/

/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/
bash: /.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/: No such file or directory.

Do I therefore, have to somehow have to install Gimp 2.10.9 as a permanent feature of my Linuxmint installation, in order to add these plugins?

Hi "Silver Surfer",

Although you could use console terminal commands to copy the plugins from wherever you saved and extracted them, I recommend you use your file manager to follow my instructions including going to (navigating to) the Gimp AppImage user configuration folder.

Almost every application creates a user configuration folder including the Gimp AppImage after it is first run.

Example console terminal command if the Gimp plugins archive file was saved and extracted into your Downloads folder.

Open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right-click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste ("Shift+Insert" or "Ctrl+Shift+v"), repeat for each command.
for Gimp v2.10 AppImage users

Code: Select all

cp ~/Downloads/Gimp_2.10.9_plug-ins/*.*  ~/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/
To give yourself permission to execute these plugins

Code: Select all

chmod -R a+rwx ~/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/
for Gimp v2.10 installed through the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM) users

Code: Select all

cp ~/Downloads/Gimp_2.10.9_plug-ins/*.*  ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/
To give yourself permission to execute these plugins

Code: Select all

chmod -R a+rwx ~/.config/GIMP/2.10/plug-ins/

Hi "Silver Surfer",

Per your request, I created a video tutorial on how to copy the Gimp v2.10 resynthesizer plugins from the archive file link in my replies to your Gimp AppImage user configuration folder.

Click the link below to view the video tutorial.
https://youtu.be/Xp0YTIO-rxc

FYI: I just realized in my video tutorial that I have a custom toolbar option for displaying "hidden" folders and files in my file manager. You can always click "View" in a file manager's toolbar to display "hidden files", or customize the toolbar to add a button for this function, and some file managers have the display hidden files option in their right-click menu too.

Re: Gimp 2.10.9 resynthesizer

Post by Silver Surfer » Sat Jan 26, 2019 10:28 am

Hi,phd21

Right! I have watched your video (Thank you for it) and whilst watching it, the "Old Brain" spotted a glimmer of a possibility, due to your mention of the word "MAP" in your video. As my 2.10 Appimage (GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181227-x86_64.AppImage) download is fairly recent, I had not explored that option in the MENU.

I had assumed, if RESYNTHESIZE was installed, I would find it under >script-fu or Filters>Enhance

So your mention of the word "MAP" in your video, prompted me to have a look, via FILTERS>MAP and what do I find right near the bottom of the list but, "RESYNTHESIZE"
So, it appears I do have it installed after all!

I did download the plugins file Gimp_2.10.9_plug-ins.tar.gz

However, are all these plugins to do with RESYNTHESIZE, or are there others in the list I might find useful. I already have the "HEAL" tool which is very useful.

Is it possible to install part of the list, or if I install all of them as per your video instructions, will my RESYNTHESIZE tool be overwritten, or maybe updated, or will it be ignored as being already installed. I don't want to wreck my current installation.

Hi "Silver Surfer",

You are welcome...

I would recommend copying all the related plugins into the Gimp plugins folder as I intructed in my video. This procedure did not affect my existing resynth plugin, all the plugins seem to work.

As I stated in my replies, the resynthesizer plugins are a suite of good plugins. I do not know if any of the plugins are dependent upon having the other plugins installed to function properly or if they can function independently.

Hi phd21,
Silver Surfer still in trouble. Thought I had followed your instructions in your video implicitly, but when I try to use the synthesizer via Filters>Map>Resynthesize, then I get the following notification. What have I done wrong..... I copied all the plugins into my "plugins folder. Should I perhaps have left out the resynthesizer_gui

Help! what do I do now?
Also,don't know why notification panel keep duplicating screenshot in this post....... OK I've solved the notification panel problem

Post by phd21 » Sun Jan 27, 2019 5:24 pm

Hi "Silver Surfer",

I would need more information like exactly what is the name of the AppImage you are using? Are you using the newest AppImage with plugins? I was using the "GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181108-x86_64.AppImage" which works perfectly the way I mentioned including gimp-lensfun. You can also download and use ""GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181108-x86_64.AppImage".

I just tested their current newest AppImage and I have the same problem messages and lensfun won't work either. This might be due to the newest AppImage having newer compiled versions of the "resynthesizer" programs. For the newer AppImages, try this console terminal command and restart Gimp AppImage or use the other AppImage I mentioned.

Code: Select all

rm ~/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/resynthesizer*.*

Hope this helps ...

O.K. phd21.
I have been using the Appimage shown in this link viewtopic.php?f=47&t=286331&p=1585947#p1585465 which as it was a later version thought it would be OK.
Your command line suggestion "rm ~/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/resynthesizer*.*" invoked the following:-
rm: cannot remove '/home/xxxxxx/.config/GIMP-AppImage/2.10/plug-ins/resynthesizer*.*': No such file or directory

In order to install your new suggested new Gimp Appimage " GIMP_AppImage-git-2.10.9-withplugins-20181108-x86_64." I assume I will need to purge the existing installation! or will it overwrite it?
Alternatively, as I found I did have "Resynthesizer" after all, in MY Gimp Appimage, if I delete all those plugins I installed, would I be back to "square one". Don't know what "fun lens" is, but could probably do without it.

Hi "Silver Surfer",

If the command did not work, then you did not copy the plugins correctly to the Gimp AppImage plugins folder.

One of the many good things about AppImages is that you do not have to remove previous AppImages unless you want to. Sometimes, as in this case, previous AppImages may have features or capabilities that the newer one does not have or visa-versa.

If you do not know or care about "lensfun" plugin, then you can use the newer AppImage file, but you would have to remove the compiled "resynthesizer" programs because they are "outdated" according to the ones included in the newer AppImage file, but the supporting python programs (something.py) should still be copied into the plugins folder in order to use those.

FYI: Lensfun
http://lensfun.sourceforge.net/

Per your request, I have also contacted you via email.

Hope this helps ...

Re: Gimp 2.10.9 resynthesizer [SOLVED]

Post by Silver Surfer » Wed Feb 13, 2019 9:00 am

Hi Guys,
“Silver Surfer” buries his head in shame. It turns out that my Gimp 2.10.9 AppImage installation did have Resynthesize in it after all, but in a place I had not expected to find it!

It was under Filters> Map>Resynthesize, However, following phd21’s helpful suggestion on Youtube,https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... zer+plugin) to install a different set of plug-ins, these new plug-ins rendered my original Resynthesizer in-operable (Not phd21’s fault at all. I’ve always found his knowledge very helpful). But got it back to rights now with phd21’s help, by deleting the nuisance files.
It was just a case of this 82 year old Geriatric, making wrong assumptions.

Sorry to anyone who may have followed this Post and caused themselves any problems.
Nonetheless, Gimp AppImage 2.10.9 is an awesome Photo Editor for anyone doing photo editing with a budget.
