I have a point-and-shoot camera with which I made multiple high-resolution, but not raw images of about the same scene - I didn't use a tripod, so the camera moved slightly.

It is an open place where I want to remove tourists / dogs / cars from.

I have seen this question from 2012 about Photoshop.

I would like to do pretty much, the same, but with software that runs on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04).

    AFAIR there was some article on how to do that with GIMP. Though most of those describe how to do it on a simgle image using the Resynthesize filter. Maybe this tutorial on merging images in GIMP could serve as a starting point? – Izzy Dec 9 '18 at 13:38

    I know one way ow to do it with gimp. That would, however, easilytake about 30 minutes per scene: (1) Aligning all photos would take about 15min (2) Searching the right crop (3) adjusting colors at the borders. I don't think gimp is the right tool for the job. – Martin Thoma Dec 9 '18 at 15:45
  • Was just an idea. I know on Android, Almalence's Better Camera has that feature. So if replacing your point-and-shoot by an Android device is an option, that would be worth a try (I haven't tried the feature there myself, I just know it was advertized). – Izzy Dec 9 '18 at 21:48
  • Can't Martin just import his photos to an Android device & run the app? – Mawg Dec 10 '18 at 13:59
  • I have no conclusive suggestions, but this sounds like something that might be possible with OpenCV, possibly with some pre/post processing using ImageMagick. – Austin Hemmelgarn Dec 10 '18 at 19:28
