Well I gave this a shot tonight, but I can not find this "smart remove selection".
I am running Gimp 2.6.6.

Thanks,
Tim

I put the exe file in C:\Program Files\GIMP-2.0\lib\gimp\2.0\plug-ins
It shows up under Filters/Map. Nothing under filters/enhance.
Here is a shot of it.
Thanks,
Tim

John,
i've just read it. Very understandable and a detailed illustrated explanation.
I guess this will helps me to win over my own stupidity a bit. :-) And the "polar pinches" do not spread phobos & deimos (=fear and fright) any more ;-)
Thanks a lot for this work.

not structured? That's not necessary (for me). I am used to it. If you could see the surface of my untidy desk... First and foremost i need pictures to understand things better.

I have to drafting my text with notepad. The main and only reason is the foreign language, you know :wink:

Thanks again
