Using the latest version of GIMP Portable, installed to the Desktop, I have tried to install the newer (I think) GIMP Resynthesizer plugin referenced in the Resynthesizer YouTube tutorial at:
I think this plug-in is newer than Resynthesize 0.13b, which I have used in the past. This newer version has additional options and features that (to me) seem to be a great improvement.
But, in GIMP Portable, the only new filter option is Resynthesize, found under FILTERS/MAP.
The YouTube tutorial shows a much more effective tool, Heal Selection, which should show up under FILTERS/ENHANCE.
In GIMP Portable, this additional filter does not show up (along with several others). In GIMP Portable, I installed all the appropriate *.py files and the two executables in Desktop\GIMPPortable\Data\.gimp\plug-ins folder, but again, only the single Resynthesize option is available after doing this.
As an additional test, I downloaded GIMP 2.10.18 (normal full version from the GIMP site, not the PortableApps version) and installed it using Windows Sandbox, then like above, placed the same plug-in files for Resynthesizer in:
C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins folder.
That version of GIMP, running from the Sandbox, has many additional Filters, including the missing FILTERS/ENHANCE/HEAL SELECTION which is NOT present in GIMP Portable. (as well as the other filters I have yet to try)
This tool (Heal Selection) is AMAZING in its ability to automatically remove selected portions of an image and blend the resulting void in with the background.
Can anyone please help me troubleshoot why these *.py additional features of Resynthesizer's plug-in do not work with GIMP Portable?
Thanks so much, especially for such a great thing as Portable Apps!!!
