This post is meant to house links to download software built by the community that does not have a proper distribution place (… or we’ll become the distribution place?). You should have a look at our software page for a large list of software and links to their home pages.
Some of the provided or linked packages provide software in alpha or beta state and are hosted here for the tester’s convenience. If you are uncertain which version to install, please check the software’s original home page or feel free to ask in the forum.
GIMP Image Editor
The GIMP editor is provided in two different versions: the standard one, and the one patched by @Elle Stone (called “Color Corrected Experimental” or CCE) which allows editing in RGB colorspaces other than sRGB.
GIMP AppImage x86_64 for GNU/Linux (by @Carmelo_DrRaw)
Installation instructions here and video tutorial here.
The above links provide the latest development version of GIMP in the form of an AppImage package, which can be downloaded and run on virtually any Linux distribution without installing additional packages.
The AppImage should work out-of-the-box on most Linux distributions.
If it doens’t work on your specific system, you can try this alternative version with additional libraries included in the bundle.
The GIMP AppImage package also contains few useful add-ons:
- the base set of MyPaint brushes
G’MIC plug-in, a large collection of very useful image filters (G’MIC still needs to be updated to the Qt version in the AppImage package)
- RAW loading plug-ins: nuFRaw, Darktable and PhotoFlow
PhotoFlow filter plug-in for non-destructive editing
Resynthesizer plug-in, for texture synthesys and selective healing
Liquid Rescale plug-in, for feature-preserving image scaling
Some tutorials that explain how to use the GIMP and PhotoFlow AppImage packages together can be found here, here and here
GIMP for Windows & Mac (by @partha)
GIMP for Windows and McGimp for Mac (In the site’s sidebar).
The site provides the latest development version of GIMP, bundled with several plug-ins: G’MIC, PhotoFlow, the Nik Collection and Microsoft “Image Composite Editor” (panorama stitching).
Both “standard” and Elle’s “CCE” versions are available for download.
Windows and Mac builds are on this thread.
Updated packages for Windows, OSX and Linux (in AppImage format) are regularly provided here.
The filmulator AppImage is available here.
