Every notable landmark seems to have one thing in common: tourists, and lots of them. Removing tourists or any unwanted objects from a photo used to be incredibly slow and tedious work. With Inpaint's Multi View feature, all you have to do is take several shots of the same scene, assuming that the objects you want to remove are moving.

Once you've taken enough pictures so that every piece of the scenery is visible, just sit back and let Inpaint do the work.

No need for tripods or any special tools; and no need to worry about shaking hands when making the photos. Inpaint will take care of this and align your photos perfectly.

Hi everyone :)
I have successfully downloaded, installed and activated the software, however when I click on serial number, the field is blank. Will this affect usage and what do I do about this field? Simply leave it blank?
Thanks so much x

An exception "Illegal Instruction" occurs when attempting to start the program and it quits.

Using WINDOWS XP-PRO w/SP3

Too bad, it looked like a great program.

#9 (karl):
Thanks for posting the result of your test. Much better than the samples on the author's web site, because it's how any of us will do with this software. You probably noticed some of the woman's shadow remains. Should I have 2 or more pictures as good as yours, I would have used copy/paste to get rid of unwanted woman, with better results and rather quickly. Of course, going the automated way could be enough (and fast) for some sets of pictures.

I think this product is much better suited for the "multiplicity" effect. This said, this GOTD is a keeper. Thanks Teorex.

For the first time ever, could not install a GAOTD program. On win7 64 bit click on setup.exe and OK 2 warnings brings up an error :
"Windows can't find C:\users\drjar\AppData\Local\Temp\install1\setup.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again."\
Tried unzipping all files to a separate folder, and re-downloaded the .zip file twice more. Still can't install.

If you used a program that could do layers, like GIMP or Photoshop, usually you used one photo for the top layer and the other for the bottom layer. You then "erased" the unwanted parts from the top layer, allowing the bottom layer to show through instead to remove objects this way.

Before software like that, the trick was to set your camera to as low an ISO setting as you could and as long an exposure as you could get away with. Then any moving object was HOPEFULLY not still long enough to be registered on the photo - This was how you got those postcards for sale, of places with no one in them even though it was daylight.

This software does work and it makes it so easy now to get pictures that were very difficult to make in the past.

I previously had this software & it worked great. I had to reformat my hard drive so I lost it. Re-installed this one today? It Does "NOT" work... Couldn't get it to anything but load a photo. It would not highlight any area & would not remove anything. VERY Disappointed.

Cool app, the logic is kind of the opposite of green screen work, where you overlay images of people on top of your scenery image. I could see using this with photos from one of the Disney parks, where there's a constant flow of people walking about, but with enough pictures, & enough patience, you might capture the entire scene as a collection of slices from however many photos. For every person in the 1st photo, you'd substitute the same area from another photo where there was nobody in that particular spot. That said, many years ago when the kids were young we lived in Florida, & visited the Disney parks fairly regularly -- I took hundreds of rolls of pictures, but I was capturing memories, & the people walking about were part of those memories, part of the experience, so I wouldn't have used something like this had it been available. I'm sure however that's not always the case for everyone. And of course as Karl mentioned, when possible just wait for the people in the way of your ideal shot to move.

I'm sure others can & will come up with other uses for MultiView Inpaint. Many's the time I've taken parts of one image & pasted it into another, sometimes to make up for something in the photo that just wasn't ideal, other times to make a picture that wouldn't be possible otherwise -- this should make that easier. It's common for outdoor shots with a lot of sky or a bright background to be too dark in other areas of the picture -- with MultiView Inpaint you should be able to combine that photo with another where the camera's adjusted to make things brighter, an image that by itself would have the sky blown out, or maybe you'd take a 2nd shot with the camera pointed lower, e.g. leaving out most of the sky, so the camera automatically makes the foreground lighter. It's possible to correct these sorts of problems, sometimes with a fill light or flash, sometimes with special camera filters, & there's always more involved work using things like P/Shop, but this is something you might do in a few minutes using MultiView Inpaint with a couple of shots you took with your cell.

Brainstorming a bit, you might also try MultiView Inpaint for effects that would otherwise take more work & maybe special hardware &/or software. It's common & in style to have just certain parts of an image in focus, with everything else a bit fuzzy or blurred. It would be easy to either take a 2nd, out of focus shot, or blur a copy of the image in whatever software, then use MultiView Inpaint to insert part or parts of the image that were in focus & clear. You could also do the same sort of thing with a copy of an image you converted to Black & White or grayscale, replacing part(s) of the image using the original color photo. I'd imagine everyone's seen that sort of effect.

---

A quick note about often more expensive, more capable software, P/Shop for example. Just like with sometimes very expensive audio &/or video software, creative types who do a lot with these sorts of apps welcome *Any* potentially useful tools. With MultiView Inpaint they don't know what they can invent, what they can think of to create tomorrow. A great many popular effects or looks or sounds started out with someone playing around, & the results were so well received that those copying their work made it a cliche, and *then* it was built into big name software. The moral, FWIW, is please don't disregard something like MultiView Inpaint just because you think you have something better -- the only thing certain is that written by different people, the software's different, & that means the results can be different as well. You might try today's GOTD 100 times, or a thousand, and never use the results, but the very next time you use it may be the time you stumble onto something unique. Besides, always trying stuff is one part of keeping so-called creative juices flowing. :)

I always use GOATD inpaint. This offer seems to be even better. Giovanni the genius has given a great example of the magic it can do. Keeper to me. (So what if it is from a Russian or Chinese company? A great program is great no matter who creates it).

This is a complete different software. Just install it, keep your Inpaint

#15 Don

You need at least two pictures of the same object. Download my 3 pictures, the second, third and fourth picture (the first is the result) by adding them with the plus sign. Now move with the cursor in the right panel to remove the person. Test it!

To John: This isn't Inpaint, it's MultiView Inpaint, it's a different program with a different approach. You'd want to have both installed in separate folders.

Regular Inpaint removes objects from a single image by algorithmically regenerating the background based on the surroundings. It works best for repeating patterns (like leaves, trees, ocean waves, rocky areas), it doesn't work as well when it has to reconstruct unique objects or unique patterns (i.e. building faces with detailed decorations, monuments, etc.).

MultiView uses multiple images of the same area and removes differences (like cars, people passing through); instead of regenerating the background it takes "clean" pieces from the images available and combines them. Since it uses real parts from the images it doesn't have any problems with unique items and can produce perfect results, but it requires multiple shots to work.

Installed, apparently, on 8.1 x64 with no problem. Opened and loaded a picture and noticed, No Tools. I find it quite difficult to accomplish anything without any tools. Anyone else run into this or the sentence that tells us dummies how to work this program? I have a picture on the right and a blank space on the left. Closed/re-opened, no joy.

Took an image and drew a random shape on it, then saved, did this again and then brought the two images into the program.
Using the marker on one of the images I moved it over the object I had placed in it, and low and behold it was gone.
On a building project I have been keeping a record of it has been impossible to keep a clear view of an area because of parked cars, just maybe I can remove those cars and at last get a clear image.

Excellent software to remove unwanted objects from a photo....actually it’s probably the best one of this category and it's very easy to use as well, when compared to GIMP, for instance.

The idea is brilliant, namely combine different areas of two or more pics in order to produce a single composite image without the unwanted object.

Here is a funny way to use this GAOTD:

So my suggestion is to install it and enjoy it as much as you can (update limitation should not be an issue here).

For those using Photoshop CC or 2014 all you need to do is use a selection method for the offending object or person and then use content aware. Result are almost always near perfect. But if not it is only a few clicks away from good enough.

Yes it is true that you do need to pay for this. But it's value is well known and the things it can do are so incredible.

If given the choice...

I have used inpaint, it pretty much does what it says it will.

Back again!

I have taken some quick photos during shopping. 3 pictures with a person and the fourth "result.jpg" - it is indeed the first one.

You load the pictures, with the eraser tool you erase the unwanted objects. Works.

You can test it yourself :

Does what it claims, works very well. A simple and straight forward keeper.

You don't need to look for the exif data. They are removed with the "Free Exif Eraser", a simple and quick working tool for some additional privacy.

I'll keep it. It is simple and does what it claims.

Thumb me down all you want but isn't having people, critter's and bird's and such in the picture actually part of the story of the picture? Don't get me wrong, I understand the purpose of the software, I just don't understand the purpose of using it. It sounds very time consuming.
Nuff said!

Just an idea for those wanting to test this, you could get some grabs from online webcams, maybe lower resolution, but still usable. I can't test till I get home

One further note to my previous posting.
It's not really neccessary to use a tripod for the photos. I did not use one and the result is still excellent. Of course you shouldn't move between the photos. Just wait long enough for the person(s) to cross, so the images of them will not overlap on the two picture sources. Otherwise, you won't have background to fill in the persons area.
And finally, this tool can handle JPG, BMP, PNG, TIFF but (of course) not RAW or DNG. And there is a little bug. When you remove something on the edge of a picture, you will get some artifacts when using UNDO. That's not a big drawback and I'm sure the author will adress this in bug in coming updates.
Still very happy with this tool!

I really like the TeoreX tools I've gotten from GOTD. They're one-trick products, but they do that one trick very well. This one looks interesting, but I'll have to shoot some photos to see how well it works.

Thanks TeoreX and GOTD!

I always had good experiences with TEOREX software. Just six weeks ago, I've been to Rhodes and shot quite a lot of pictures. Todays Giveaway let me search for some pics for testing. I fished out a a pair of photos where a person crossed in the background on the ancient site of Kamiros. An idea came to my mind, that it should be possible to remove this person if i made two pictures in sequence. Download was quick, installation and activation went smooth and BANG! The effect I had in mind, when I was shooting these pics was perfectly established in virtually seconds!
This is a special tool, for one special purpose. But it's a lightweight little program and does that particular job in a perfect way. I can highly recommend it and will definitely keep it.
PS: i could have posted my pictures here, but the effect is exactly as can be seen on

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A (Russian) company without name and address, focusing on photo manipulation and removing unwanted objects.

The idea is excellent. You stack a couple of photos and you select the static parts - thus removing all moving objects like traffic and people.
Important, most important is that you take the series of photos without moving your camera too much (preferably not at all) and wait between the photos until the people have "really" moved. For best results use a tripod...

But the idea is quite old. A couple of years. And it was introduced e.g. in Zoner Photo Studio 13, which we had in June 2011.

Upon start a dark interface opens. In the preferences you can switch the language to Russian or not and you can define the marker size.

What a pitty that I have no sets of photos to really test the program. If I have some time, I will go out and take same pictures. Maybe I'll come back later.

Basically the best way to remove moving objects, depending on the tripod quality and the patience to wait minutes between the photos.
