Giveaway of the Day - InPaint 3.1 (for Windows and Mac)
Looks like a simple picture "mender" touch-up proggy.
19hrs 20mins to go as at time of posting this.

Thanks IainB.
I have 2.4 and 3.0, so, to keep the older versions, and 3.1,
I added 3.1 to the destination directory and program group.
It activated properly, even with changing those.
Added 3.1 to the shortcut too.

Iain, this is a terrific program, and I'm glad you've mentioned it.  But I'm surprised that they're giving away version 3.1, since I already have version 4.0.  But I should add that I was also very enthusiastic about version 3.  Photoshop CS5 made a big splash with its Content Aware feature to remove unwanted items from photos, but I've found that InPaint is just as easy, just as effective in most instances, and infinitely less expensive (even when it's not on GAOTD).  :Thmbsup:

Yes.
Having now had some opportunity to play with InPaint myself, I have to say that it seems like a classic example of a specialised/niche software tool - it really seems to do only one thing, and it seems to do it really well.    :Thmbsup:
That "one thing" is a very common requirement - remove or repair/mend objects/blemishes in digital images.
For example, I have been looking for something like this for ages, to repair blemishes in old photos. There's a similar tool in Picasa, but it doesn't seem to work all that well as it is difficult to avoid having it leave residual "ghosty" image particles around the repaired areas.

There is no reason to vote for a feature already being default, I would say; it is not even possible to save a picture other than "Save as..."
 ;)
