GIMP: how to remove any part of an image without being noticed

The other day I came across an interesting extension guidance on GIMP allowing remove objects or people of a image automatically.

You simply have to have GIMP and the Resynthesizer extension installed. To install the latter, open a terminal and run:

sudo apt-get install gimp-resynthesizer

All that remains is to follow the instructions shown in the following video.

    Make sure you have correctly installed the gimp-resynthesizer package, in case you have the GIMP open you have to completely close it and reopen it for it to load the new plugins.

    I hope these indications help you, greetings.

    When I put the mouse pointer on Enhance, I don't have the option to Smart remove selection. Do you know how I could have it? Thank you.

    I suggest you visit the official page of the project:

    There you will find the source code of the extension. Yes, in Fedora you will have to install it by hand. Still, I think there is also an old package for Fedora.

    Cheers! Paul.
