Inpaint is a graphics software for retouching photos and removing unwanted objects, supported on Microsoft Windows and Macintosh.[1]


Inpaint focuses on photo editing via simplified semi-automatic tools and mechanisms. The program includes a tool similar to the Healing Brush tool in Adobe Photoshop CS5 with the Content-Aware mode on. Similar to Healing Brush, the tool tries to replace bad or damaged texture with good texture from another area to create a seamless repair of an image.

Specifically, Inpaint is capable of performing the following functions:

  • Removal of unwanted objects from an image[2]
  • Facial retouching
  • Old photos repair
  • Arbitrary merging of multiple images into one[3]
  • Object cloning
  • Restoring empty areas on panorama photos

Batch processing of multiple images is possible via the Batch Inpaint version.

It also contains online tutorials.[4]
