Gmic for Gimp on OSX


#1

Hi!
I have just installed Gimp 2.8.22 on my sierra OSX.
I intent to install also the gmic for gimp. My last experiences with this installation are not too positive (as an example, for gimp 2.8.20 i was not able to install any gmic).
I have 3 main questions:

  1. which version of gmic is suitable for gimp 2.8.22 on mac?
  2. from where to download it?
  3. how to install it?

thank you!

Hi, gmic gimp plugin is not standalone, it is built against certain Gimp builds. Best, you should use Gimp from GimponOSX. Still you can try the plugin gmic_gimp_ngtk from latest git build 2.0.2 (pre-release #170615) http://karo03.bplaced.de/gmic/git/Macgmic_macosx_64-Sierra.dmg, provided your Gimp comes from Gimp.org http://gimp.org/

WoW! The touch of the master. :slight_smile: It has worked!

So what I have done:

  1. download gimp from http://gimp.org/
  2. download gmic from http://karo03.bplaced.de/gmic/git/Macgmic_macosx_64-Sierra.dmg
  3. Because the gimp is the one from gimp.org, I used then gmic_gimp_ngtk to put it in the location:
    ~/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/plug-ins/

The … Gmic Gtk appear in my menu (gray) and when open a photo, it is fully accessible.

Thank you! :slight_smile:

PS I am assuming that if i use the gimp from gimponosx I must use the gmic_gimp_gtk in the plugins location. But there I see only the gimp 2.8.18, not the 2.8.22.

From my point of view, case closed (for the moment).

… only for info, there are a lots of persons working on Mac Gimp independently, hence there is the GimponOSX actually 2.8.18 (but with gmic, which can be updated as written) and there is the Gimp.org http://gimp.org/ version which is rather naked in terms of plugins, but more recent. For the latter I have tried to prepare some sort of hack (or poor) plugin, the gmic_gimp_ngtk. Still there is the Partha Gimp 2.9.5 with gmic plugin too!

Thank you again - it is good to know all this kind of stuff. :slight_smile:In windows sometime it is more simple - just click and install LOL. But I preffer OSX (and I am not alone… :smiley:)
