In GIMP-for-Mac 2.8, 2.9, and 2.10, when I try to apply one of the (just fantastic) G’MIC-Qt filters, the status bar shows the plug-in is processing … for as long as I allow it to run. After half an hour or so I cancel the plug-in.
The picture files are Panasonic .RW2 RAW files, average size 21.5 mb. 1200 x 900 jpegs suffer the same fate.
I have used the Apply and OK commands, but once I start a filter going it never stops. My systems (this happens on the laptop and the tower) are running Mac OS 10.11.6, El Capitan, and right now I am running GIMP 2.9 color corrected, which came with G’MIC installed. The top of the G’MIC window says:
G’MIC-Qt for GIMP 2.9 - Mac OS 64 bits - 2.0.3 pre#170821
I have experienced this ‘effect’ after installing GIMP 2.8 and 2.10 for Mac, so I am fairly puzzled.
Am I missing some obvious step or parameter or command?
