Inpaint is a software product for Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac performing basic photography editing operations. The product is positioned as a simple yet effective photo retouching tool for beginner designers, web developers and home users. Inpaint is a software application that makes it very easy to remove unwanted objects from your digital photos without any specialist knowledge.[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. Just like 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]
