You're looking at the wrong place, "This tool has no options" on the toolbox is normal, it is always there, even when the tool is successfully opened. When the Colorize settings window does not open, you should look at the status bar at the bottom of the window. It is easy to miss since when you move the mouse over the menu, hints are flickering there, so you don't notice when it has changed to something important, and then the message disappears in 7 seconds. The error looks like this:

Here I was trying to run it on an opened GIF file. Since in GIF colors are stored in indexed format, I had to switch the mode from Indexed to RGB (Image - Mode - RGB) to be able to use the...

In the Update Manager

If you are not familiar or comfortable adding PPAs and installing software through the command line, then you can accomplish everything we wish to do with the Update Manager, but it may take slightly longer.

In Precise, open your Update Manager. Then, click Settings. Under the Other Software tab, click Add. Paste the following line into the box and enter your password when prompted.

Repeat for this line.

Close the Software Sources window and Check for Updates.

Open the Software Centre and search for Gimp, or just Install Gimp.

Once you've found it or clicked that link (which you may be asked to confirm, tick the checkbox so you don't get asked again), you'll need to click Install in the top-right-hand-corner of the Software Centre.

In the Terminal

Adding the repository, updating, and installing the latest gimp, can be done via one unified command. You will need to enter your (administrator) password,...

FAQ Nathan (aka RockWalrus) is organizing a re-write of the gimp developer faq. I made a few contributions... I am in now way attached to the comments that I wrote. Feel free to change/steal/sell/dowhateveryouwant with the answers I have made to these questions.

So far the comments are made without reference to any other documents (ie from memory!) 1. What is the GIMP? The GIMP is a program for manipulating and creating images. 2. What does GIMP stand for? It stands for GNU Image Manipulation Program, it used to stand for General Image Manipulation Program, but the authors were approached and convinced that GNU was a better choice for the "G". 1997 Intervew 3. What features does it have? Almost all standard image manipulation features are available in the GIMP, and there are non-standard ones as well. In addition there are some great features to create logos and buttons with just the entry of a few parameters. Features include,...

This site is about a


plugin called

Liquid Rescale


It is a free, open source frontend to the Liquid Rescale Library, which provides an implementation of the Seam Carving algorithm as described in this paper by Shai Avidan and Ariel Shamir.

The Seam Carving procedure aims at resizing pictures non uniformly while preserving their features, i.e. avoiding distortion of the important parts.
The plugin supports manual feature selection, and can also be used to remove portions of the picture in a consistent way.
Since version 0.6 it also supports real-time interactive scaling.

The latest version is 0.7.2, released on Aug 5th, 2013.
It requires GIMP 2.8 or newer.

After installation, you will find it under the Layer menu in GIMP.

This site is a Wiki, and it is always in need of improvement. Every contribution is welcome, all you need if you wish to help developing these pages is site...

GIMP began life in the 1990s as the GNU Image Manipulation Program, and the free, open-source image editing tool has evolved in both complexity and ease of use alongside the personal computer, itself. The latest version, GIMP 2.8, maintains the program's legacy as a powerful and up-to-date, yet totally free image editor. GIMP is modular in appearance and structure and accepts all kinds of plug-ins and tools. It's a paint and drawing tool, a photo retoucher, and a batch processing and conversion tool, all in one, with sophisticated features like layers, filters, and effects. You can script virtually anything GIMP does, too. But don't be put off by GIMP's considerable talents: Not only is its layout logical, intuitive, and even attractive (in a form-follows-function way) but it also comes with tons of assistance; from multiple Help files (Help; Context Help; User Manual) and considerable online resources such as a forum, FAQs, documentation, tips, source code, and much more.

GIMP 2.9.6 was released recently. Kudos to Mitch and the team on this tremendous achievement. A lot of improvements have been made since the last release. For those who have been following these builds, you are already aware of most of them. If not, please read the release notes above. The default raw editor in these builds currently is NUFRaw version 0.41.

Good News! The Linux AppImages are now available. These images have been kindly provided by Carmelo DrRaw and available here. They should work for all distributions.

Here the image was processed in NUFRaw, and then opened in McGimp-std. The image was exported with the Melissa ICC profile in 16-bit. The image was then subsequently opened with the Color Efex Pro 4 plugin from the Nik Collection. You must install the collection at its default location for the plugins to work properly with GIMP.

Recently G'MIC was updated to version 2.0.3. The version included in these builds is the pre 2.0.4 build....
