Remove timestamp


Post by Jerry3904 » Thu Dec 08, 2011 12:00 pm

This is cool: for a book project I needed to remove the timestamp from a picture. Talked to Mr. Google, ended up on this page. Install gimp-resynthesizer from the repos, 4 quick steps, and bingo!

Two things I had to do differently: rename the downloaded file by taking off the final ".txt" so it endes in "py", and increase the variable option to 2px under Step 3.

Result attached--timestamp was in the lower R corner.

Nice tip, thanks for sharing. I just added the gimp resynthesizer and tried it. Select by color is a tool I never think about using.
