Texsynth..

I used to think this program was good. But after using other tools, i have decided to modify this reveiw, to tell the truer story

The main problems are:
-> Texsynth is slow. I don't want to have to wait 1/2 an hour just to get a tilable texture.
-> lack of features. Texsynth only tiles textures, whereas other tools out there have the ability to "remove features" in a texture, using the material on either side of the feature to fill in the gaps. Other apps can remove luminence gradients in images, and a whole lot more

Personally, i don't care if texsynth can do this process 7 different ways, what i want is something fast, and with more features.

For the above reasons, i give this program a 3.2...sorry, but that's it. If you want a quality app, download "resynthesizer" and "homogoniser" for the GIMP. they take about 5 seconds to do a 256X256 pixel texture, and it has a lot more features. best of all, it's cross platform, and open source
