This tutorial shows how to remove objects, smudges or items from photos and images. We are using GIMP for it.

Get Necessary software:

I assume you already have GIMP. If not then go to gimp.org and download it for free. If you have GIMP then you also need Resynthesizer. Resynthesizer is a Gimp plug-in for texture synthesis. Given a sample of a texture, it can create more of that texture. For Debian and Debian based systems like Ubuntu its possible to get the plug-in from repository.

Remove Object From Photo:

I picked a photo of a lamp that I made and remove the lamp with few clicks.remove object from image

Selected my lamp using lasso tool:remove items from photos

Then go to "Filters - Map - Resynthesize..." and press OK. This might take some time.unwanted objects from
