Make Graphic Design Much Easier.

Batch Inpaint is a batch version of Inpaint – photo processing and retouching tool. While removing an unwanted object from a photo with Inpaint is easy, it may still consume a lot of time if you have a whole bunch of pictures to process. Batch removal of typical objects from images is what Batch Inpaint is designed for.

Watermarks, time stamps, glitches, scratches, facial wrinkles, power lines, persons accidentally caught by the camera in the very moment of a shot and other things can be effortlessly erased from photos in automatic mode.

Installation and activation were FLAWLESS.

I looked at a few of their tutorials to see what kind of changes I could make to some of my photos. Had to re-read their instructions a few times before it all made sense. Their GUI has changed from the time they wrote the tutorials. In their link for today's giveaway the program has a black BG and looks like this: http://www.theinpaint.com/batch-inpaint.html but in the lesson on removing a time stamp all tools and buttons are at the top of the screen: http://www.theinpaint.com/inpaint-how-to-remove-date-stamp-from-photo.html

On the upside, when you hover the mouse over the different tools, their function displays. When they tell you to "run processing", they mean click the "arrow" button at the top of the screen: http://my.jetscreenshot.com/20413/20130710-r0gl-51kb.jpg

It takes on average about 7-10 sec per file to process, so the job would have ran for about 20 min... or so you would think.

I loaded a batch of 120 jpeg files to have the date stamp removed. On all of them (taken with the same camera), the stamp was located in the lower left corner. The program crashed 13 pictures into the process: "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. ==> Close program"

I repeated the process with only 2 pictures and they both converted fine. Then I re-loaded the remaining 106 files - again, the program crashed, this time right at the end of the first photo.

Conclusion: When it works - it does the job just fine. The problem is - it's too lazy to get off its a$$ and show up for work - prefers to call in sick for the day. I'll try a few more of its features on smaller batches (didn't see a limitation on batch size) and may be uninstall it, then switch to some of Giovanni's free solutions. Too bad. I didn't mind the dark GUI and was looking forward to deleting a few annoying family members from some pretty party photos... Oh, well.

this program was previously offered on GOTD and I'll say it is one of the best little software utilitys I own and use. I've removed unwanted junk from so many vacation pictures, family photos, etc. and even after printing them, some portrait size, they look great. I'd buy it for $19.95 if I had to...but thanks GOTD!

Developer Teorex is Slipping Up in 2013.
I bought all of Teroex software (except RadioZilla), including every version of InPaint since v2. I WAS always very satisfied with Teorex's software...until these past few months. One, Teorex suddenly and without warning abandoned its excellent DupHunter, leaving a lot of customers like me stranded. Two, the new version 5 of InPaint is not as good as version 4. Three, Teroex stopped offering an upgrade price for new versions...which was another stinger for their old customers. 5. This year, Teroex fails to reply to customers' emails--their support now sucks bad! I doubt I will buy anymore Teorex software in the future. Oh and if you have InPaint v4, stick with it and don't bother to upgrade to v5...that's this user's advice (I reverted back to my old copy of v4). New is not always better...as in Teorex's case.

Is there a free zip opener that works with giveaway or am out of luck.

@#30 EMa/ema:

Hmm. Windows has nativly supported zip files (at least unzipping them) since who knows when -- at least XP or earlier. So you should be able to open, unzip/extract the contained files etc.

In XP, double, double-click the zip file. In the left column click on Extract all files under the "Folder tasks" header. Follow the wizard from there.

In Win7 double-click on the zip file. Click on Extract all</b (or similar) in the "ribbon" near the top of the window. Follow the wizard from there.

This is all predicated on you un-installing your existing "free" zip utility. Look in Control Panel to do that. If you decide to re-install it, don't let it steal your file associations away from Windows. Unless you need to zip files you don't need a "free" (or not) zip program.

Good luck,
Kevin

It seems the only options is some form of 'FORCE' save b4 getting 2 prevu the outcome w/the pop-up u have to opt 4 b4 going ahead. this is IMPORTANT BC it DOESN'T Always come out w/o it being evident of what was done, so ur options r loose ur original or double ur memory costs or save/delete just to to vu ur results.

Plus, it crashed each time I used the remove button &/or '-' button.

I do like the program if these 2 items r fixed

Windows 8 64 bit. Installed just fine! Yahoo! Thanks so much for giving us this format of the install & activate, GOTD! I'm happy!

I don't often get software from GOTD anymore, due to the new way of making the installer by GOTD. This is great! Thanks so much!
Thanks for the software, Teorex! :)

Digital images are made up of pixels. Different parts of different images have different pixels. So if the bottom corner of one image has a solid red block surrounded by solid blue, and you want to remove that red block so that no-one knows it was ever there, then you use software which (a) copies the pixels comprising the blue background and (b) pastes 'em over the pixels comprising the red block.

And that's how cloning works: the replacement of one element or area of an image with the content of the immediately adjacent image area.

I've never been that impressed with today's developer, seeing as how every aspect of its commercial ware bears an uncanny resemblance to the work of Open Source developers who have made pioneering efforts in this particular field of digital manipulation.

I'm even less impressed today, because the notion that there can be such a thing as 'batch' cloning is downright absurd -- as if, magically, this or any software can 'remove' a power-line that in one image appears half way down and to the right of the shot and then in the next picture is at the top left of the shot. Of course it can't. Batching is about fixed parameters, and if you've 30 holiday snaps with power-lines stretched across 30 different positions then nope, they're most definitely not going to vanish at the press of a button.

The developer really needs to re-title this product or, perhaps better yet, not even bother producing it as some kind of product separate from its kindred. It is emphatically not a 'batch' cloning tool but a fixed-position pixel editor, something that can clone out the time-stamps inadvertently left on an image, or watermarks deliberately imprinted to copyright the content of professional portfolios. (The former is understandable, the latter, contemptible, though that's hardly the developer's responsibility.)

Thanks GOTD, but no thanks. The title of this software is highly misleading and, coupled with a $20 re-install price, renders this particular giveaway not worth the bother of even downloading.

Registration Problems
The program called “Activate.exe” registers the program when you run it, this is stated in the README file as follows:-
“then run the activation program Activate.exe which is included in the package to register your copy”

@26 there is no serial number, the activate exe does what it's name is saying, activate the program. You should never run activate exe with the program open, just install and then when the install is finished and you get the last screen with the checkmark saying "run xxxx", click away the checkmark before clicking ok and first run activate before running the program or run activate before clicking away the last screen. The fact that there is no place anymore to register the program means that it is registered.
Your "Ghost account", check out http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/1a1a157b-6eba-4701-835a-8251f3ae01d6/what-is-this-account-unknown-sid- for an answer to that one. follow the instructions in the 4th post and you will know who is that unknown account. At least, thats how I found out. If you check other programs (not related to GOTD, for example steam in my case)you might find the same accounts

I rarely complain about the free giveaways, but this is simply the trial version that is free anyway. Once activated there is no way to add a serial number for a true full version of the program. I let the install open the program and then did the activation. When nothing happened, ie the serial number never filled in and the only way I could see to get one is to buy the program. So I closed the program and reactivated and opened it again. Now there is no place to put any serial number.
Also I see oddities in the files for the program coming from GOATD. A user with permissions that is totally unknown to me, yet my personal account is not listed at all. Who is this S-1-5-5-0-99866? I don't have any such account on my PC, yet this one has permissions for all files in the folder downloaded from this site. I downloaded from the Teorex site as well and no such entity in any file properties. This is not the first time I have seen that same entity with permissions in file properties from programs downloaded from GOATD . What is it?

Steen, Inpaint is a well known and trusted software developing company. Your AV program is giving a false positive. Report that to what ever developer makes it and get a spell checker.

OK,it downloaded,installed with no problems on my computer running-Windows 7 Ultimate,32bit.
Step 1.-Removing a watermark from a single image,works real fine.(99% success)
Step 2.-Removing a watermark from a small batch of almost identical images works ok,slight imperfections.(85-90% success)
Step 3.-Removing a watermark from a folder containing 60 images with watermark in exact same place,doesn't live up to it's name as a batch removal.(50% success)
On a large scale as a 'Batch Removal' it doesn't work well.I used a folder containing fashion shots watermarked,only half the photos turned out fine,the other half had some minor to major imperfections.Such as part of watermark extended,model in image having an extra foot or leg bent out of shape etc...Resulting in images being ruined if backups are not made first.I'm sorry to say but this doesn't work as a 'Batch Removal' tool.For a 'free' app with almost perfect success for using single images but for an app that is designed for 'Batch Removal'that you have to pay for,then this application needs a lot more work to justify the price.

As they show on their website it looks like it's mainly used to remove date stamps on photographs.
I tested this by using two totally different photographs and inserting text at the same position in both.
I then marked it for removal in the first photograph and started the programs removal process.

It worked very successfully on both photographs, what more can you ask!

-Doesn't support drag and drop (or maybe it does, but doesn't work in my case?)
-Crashes when using magic wand tool
Other than that, it does an okay-ish job, but removing items manually (using GIMP or photoshop) is much more accurate

@ Giovanni
Thanks again for your always excellent inputs. I read your comments even when I'm not interested in the particular program because of he many useful references you make.

As for Inpaint itself, I agree with the already expressed opinions that it's a good tool for quickly removing undesirable objects from one image but dealing with a batch of different images is another matter. So I'll skip this one and await Inpaint 3.

INPAINT is already a great product...BATCHINPAINT is even better, since it gives you the ability to process several pics in batch.
But do we really need a program like this?
Usually, unlike you are a photographer, the average Joe home user doesn't have tons of pictures with unwanted persons or objects accidentally caught by his/her camera....so INPAINT is more than enough!!

Anyway 2 THUMBS UP from me!

"A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I'm afraid that I've been unable to get past this pop-up, after several tries. This program is apparently going to require more time and some careful study.
I doubt anyone will find it as easy to use as Impaint.

But it does look promising, so I'm keeping it for now.

The relentless nonsense of batch watermarkers v batch watermark removers rages on. Inpaint works quite well on individual photos, but I can't imagine a real world situation for batch removal, other than unscrupulously removing watermarks designed to protect images. If an image is so important to remove a date stamp, it is probably worth doing carefully, or switch the feature off in the first place

I like Inpaint, but it doesn't adapt well to batch processing. In all fairness, I doubt any similar program would. Anyone who has used the original (it's been given away here many times in different versions) knows that it's not magic. It often takes repeat tries and tweaking to get the desired effect.


Since the Inpainted portion of your picture is filled in according to the surrounding area, the pictures would have to be absolutely identical for it to work. Just having the watermark, etc. in the same place is meaningless, because you wind up tweaking and re-tweaking the photos anyway. This is just a bad idea. You'd be better served and far less frustrated by simply using original Inpaint to edit your pictures one at a time.

As with all Teorex offerings, the installation is smooth and easy with a setup file and an activate file. No need to visiting a link or use an email address. This publisher has always been popular here because their programs are easy to use and work quite well. I expect the results will be the same for this offering.

I am not an expert on pictures and how to touch them up. My only concern is that in batch processing some images may not get the full attention that they need. But Teorex has thought of that and has offered tutorials at the following link...

http://www.theinpaint.com/batch-inpaint.html

I have found with Inpaint and other programs like this that slow and easy is the way to go when touching up images. Rather than block off huge sections, try smaller ones until the object you want is gone. Save often, especially after a successful process. I will leave further opinion to the experts but I would heartily recommend this product to anyone that has a need for it. It's a great program made by a great publisher.

Thank you GOTD team and Teorex.

I'm having trouble believing that all unwanted items removed from one photo will "remove" as smoothly and accurately from all subsequent photos... unless, of course, all photos are exactly the same.

However, this is apparently made by the same folks who gave us Inpaint, so because of this I'm more than willing to try it.

I'll report back in a few hours and let you know how well it worked.
