trouble installing g'mic for gimp portable (win10)


hi, I have trouble installing g’mic for gimp portable for windows. I got gimp 2.10.4 portable from the portableapps website and g’mic form I have tried both 32 and 64 bits. gimp just does not recognize g’mic.

thanks in advance for the help


Should work, might depend where Gimp is installed, memory stick, second hdd… A quick check.

PortableApps had problems with Gimp 2.10.2 - looks like Gimp 2.10.4 is better.

For maximum portability it is a 32 bit Gimp so you need the 32 bit gmic_gimp Which is probably your problem. Get the zip file

Look in Edit -> Preferences -> Folders -> Plug-ins for the path to the plugins folder. Should be …\GIMPPortable\Data.gimp\plug-ins screenshot:

Unzip gmic_gimp, keep the folder name same as the plugin and put it in that folder.

Start up Gimp, open an image, check if it works. Does here:


thanks, it worked. apparently the problem was that I did not copy gmic to the plugins folder in an own folder
