Many thanks for this update to a brilliant little programme! Much appreciated after hardware upgrades cost a few good'uns.

Does everything it says on the tin, and then some.

For the people having issues with the registration...are you extracting all your files to another folder...then your program should work...if you're opening within a zip folder...many times its like sending that file to the temporary file..as soon as you close it..its gone..so you have to install the program in another folder (extract all the files in your zip folder)

One other thing i've noticed is if you click on the program more than once with the issue..sometimes you open more than one instance..so in effect..nothing happens...for example if you click on the file and nothing happens..most times there may be lag so if we sit there and click over and over..its like you're trying to open multiple instances...

Some have said that GOTD says its registered yet they don't see where it is..so normally by closing the program and then opening it again shows the program registered..(like when you do updates..some ask for a restart..this is similar..close the program and then reopen...should work

I was able to finally "Activate the Reg Key" ...by opening the [Activation] exe zip file in WinRAR (WinRAR is a zip file program using their free version) I was using "Tubozip" previous with no luck on getting the Activation to work or open. Once the activation did work... I was taken to the GAOTD page that said "activated" and then when I opened the Inpaint tab for "the registration number" ...it was no longer visible on the program - Finally it worked.

I wish I would of read all these comments before I deleted my older working copy, now I too can not register this 6.2 version. I am having the same trouble as others who are posting comments here: No activation registration key. I tried re-installing and opening the "Activation" first, that didn't help. Even turned off the anti-virus ... still no luck. Tried running as Administrator and that didnt help either. Hmmmm ...maybe I will check their "forums page"

Thank you GOTD and TeoreX for today's giveaway offer.

This is a great tool to own if you want to quickly remove unwanted objects from an image. But sadly it seems that Inpaint might not be able to handle very high resolution images. Inpaint crashed every time I tried to load and remove some objects from an image with a resolution of 15027x20000.

Seems like Inpaint works best with lower resolution images. It's a pitty, Inpaint is pretty decent software, but probably won't be keeping it.

Well worked ok for Windows 10 Pro x64. Inpaint 6.2 activated — what next? Got the message but didn't find any place within the program itself indicating a license or registered line in menu. Guess doesn't have that.
Fairly simple operation for a few corrections at a time, light work. Thanks.

I don't know why so many people just ASSUME that the person querying what went wrong is the cause -- I can personally vouch for the fact that this programme, while it is very good and I am extremely glad to get it again finally, is ALWAYS a problem to install. At least twice on other offerings, I thought I had got it -- but it wasn't properly registered, or so it seemed -- LATER. ie. After the deadline, with no hope of trying again.

The fact is, I have tried ALL the above helpful suggestions -- and it seems quite arbitrary as to whether it will work or not. I have tried running Activate FIRST, in the middle, and at the end of the installation process. Eventually I got more luck copying all the files (unzipped by ACDSee) into a folder, and from DOS activating it first, then running Setup, then during the process of installing, going back and running Activate again -- and finally AGAIN, after opening the programme. THEN closing it, then re-opening... What a palaver! But I did it because the programme IS very useful.

I just don't know why EVERY TIME it is such a hassle to install properly.

But keep tryin' -- I'm sure you'll find it is worth it!

For some of those people having trouble with the registration, I hope this is useful for you. If you have run activate.exe then it only registers for the account that is used to install it. If you have to run the installation program as administrator, but try to use a different account for normal use of the program, then it will not be registered for you in your non-administrator account. It is possible to register it for a non-administrator account if you are competent copying and entering registry keys, but if you are not competent don't bother trying. The GOTD versions do not have a registration key supplied, the activation process writes the registration information straight into the registry.

Does TeoreX recommend an uninstall of a previous version (I'm using 5.6) before installing this version, or will it overwrite?

Could not save but GAoTD said it was activated.
Did all the suggestions. None worked.
The answer: run the software as Administrator.
As a Vista user, I save the software using the Administrator account. But when I tried to run it, I was using the User Account. When I righclicked Inpaint and told it to run as Administrator, I could save.

Now to figure out how to get it (and other software) to start in the user acct in stead of exclusively in the Administrator acct.

When using a free zip program ( I use P Zip), I find I need to extract to a separate folder other than Temp/App. Try extracting to Desktop, or create a folder called 'Extractions' for future use. When all the zipped files (.exe, .gcd, etc) are extracted to the same place, activation (run after setup) will work correctly and open the new tab in your browser.

I installed version 6.2 separately from version 6.0 and compared results of each on the same photo. I thought that 6.0 did a better job on the photo than 6.2 (fewer artifacts). Did anyone else have similar results?

Reply   |   Comment by Frank D  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-2)

Frank, using InPaint is like rolling dice: you get a slightly different result each time. If you are not happy with what you get, undo and click "erase" again. This can also explain why you like better what you saw in 6.0. Just a matter of chance.

It is not clearly indicated. Just try to modify and save a picture. If you can do it without being asked to register, you already are.

Finally! After 3 unsuccessful installation attempts over the past couple of years, I was at last able to use inpaint again.
HAVE TO RUN ACTIVATE.EXE before it will work (i.e., save your files). This is subtly hidden in Read Me. Thanks for the tip-off, folks.

I have also been using InPaint for years and it is by far the easiest and quickest software out there for removal of items in pictures. This is a great little software and well worth the download. I check this site out every day and am so happy when I get to update my current software to a new version like today. Thanks GOTD and Teorex. Made my day.

I am having the same problem. I have installed the Inpaint software and run Activate twice with no effect. The program still has the "Install serial key" line active. I can only conclude there must be an error somewhere in the Activate code that isn't registering the installed software.

Registration .
Almost no programs cheque for registration whilst running; most often they do it on start-up.

So after entering serial number or running activate the program should be closed and then reopened.

If you remember this then it's dead simple. :-)

Hi

Anyone, probably also in Germany not able to download today's or yesterday's Giveaway because of GOTD being inaccessible, except via VPN/Proxy program? I have been having problems & missed out on yesterday's giveaway. Issue described in forum post, hoping for a quick solution.

I am otherwise very happy to get Inpaint again, since a forced re-installation of Windows the other week made me lose all my GOATD programs, including Inpaint. ;). This is definitely very good & I was going to miss it very much.

Many thanks!

Yesterday and today had similar problems in the UK; sometimes available and sometimes not with just a blank page.
Never had any problems with the old layout which is infinitely better than the new one.
For the first time yesterday viewed this site in Firefox on Win 7 rather than my normal Firefox in XP.
It was almost unreadable in win 7 could only be described as utterly horrendous it was so cluttered.

Hi,
Actually in Canada, there's a problem too. The e-mail message lead to the page that automatically went to a Page under construction. I redid it a 2nd time trying to catch the download button before the transfer, did that, but even the download button lead to that page under construction. So the link from the e-mail obviously did not work, worse lead somewhere else. Since I really wanted Inpaint, I went directly to this page with my browser, and it worked. I hope things get better for you soon. Have a great day in spite of everything.

Installed and registered easily on 64 bit Windows 10.

Works well, particularly on simpler scenes with expanses of sky or similar textures. On a 'busy' image it's a case of 'nibbling' from the edges but, again, doesn't do too bad a job, just takes longer.

I still had to take the image into Photoshop for finishing to adjust some of the areas Inpaint had chosen. It occurs to me that the inclusion of a clone tool or brush in order to tidy up would make this a complete tool for this type of work and avoid the need to move across to another programme later.

Since it chooses the texture from surrounding areas it doesn't offer much leeway to the user, having said that it is usually pretty appropriate, sometimes impressively so. Probably not much quicker that Photoshop or Gimp for more detailed images but does give a good result that is easy to finish.

I'll be keeping this one, thank you GAOTD.

Actually, Kestrel, to replace the object you want to remove, you can pick pixels werever you want, not necessarily in the surrounding area. To do so, click the rubber and remove the greened area around the object, then click the marker to green the area you want.

Reply   |   Comment by ouialaraison  –  5 years ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+34)

For this developer to include clone brushes or any other kinds of assistance would be to take InPaint head to head with Movavi's brilliant Photo Editor. I doubt Teorex wants to do that, preferring instead to stick to the one-trick pony.

As far as this particular pony goes, it does its job well enough though like other apps of this type is often unfairly criticised by users who fail to understand that as you're working at pixel level, you need to MAXIMIZE the image you're dealing with: enlarge, enlarge and ENLARGE. I've lost track of the number of times I've heard of folks working on a 1:1 image and then complaining that the result has disappointed. What did they expect?

I'll give this latest InPaint version a run through but have to say that I thought the developer's decision to make it more complicated than it used to be was a backward step. Image post processing is time consuming, another reason why Movavi's simple straightforward approach has proved so successful for that particular developer.

A popular staple GAoD, Inpaint does a fair job of removing objects, individual results strongly depending on the (area of the) image involved. It is quick and easy to use, which are really its strong points for those lacking the time or skill to use more elaborate methods in an image editor. Results can be improved by changing the image in more than one steps.

For those who have version 6.0 previously offered here, the main advantage of the current version is “Improved quality of texture generation”.

Though it is one of the best of its kind, there’s always room for improvement. For example, I’ve found that the Guide Lines are not always fully effective. And of course, further improving the algorithm in general would add much usefulness.

I consider the price normally charged as reasonable, and strongly recommend that you get in now that’s free.

Ran setup, paused before allowing it to open the program, ran activate then let it finish setup, this way it opens up registered.

A program that has been offered many times before and proved very popular; have only used it for removing objects.
Today decided to look at their online help and was quite amazed at its versatility, a shame that it is not included in the program when it is downloaded so it can be viewed off-line.

A good removal tool and if you read the help file you will find it is much more, well worth a download.
