Powerful, free image editing application; now a native Mac app.

Overview

GIMP is a multi-platform photo manipulation tool. GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. The GIMP is suitable for a variety of image manipulation tasks, including photo retouching, image composition, and image construction.

GIMP has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... If just half of the people who give Adobe all of their money and know have to pay monthly to upgrade would just donate $10 to the development of The Gimp it could really be a game changer. I love the Gimp and have for a long time. Now, native on OS X and maturing nicely. This is such a great gift to the Mac community. Thank you, so much!

I have just downloaded The Gimp. I have not had time to try it yet, but I do have project that I think that will do the job well. I have a photo of a very close relative that died 32 years ago. This photo was the last photo ever taken of him. Unfortunately, the photo was left on a windowsill and the sun has bleached out much of the colour. I do have other photos of him from which I can get an accurate colour match of his skin tone. I’ll keep you informed on the progress I make. Any tips or ideas please let me know.

My image editor of choice for over five years. It doesn't get much better for free.

Found this great site with excellent tutorials and tips on using GIMP and Photoshop. https://howtogimp.com/ I like GIMP, but I wouldn't call it 'intuitive', especially for newcomers. This site helped me a lot. I use GraphicConverter 90% of the time, GIMP when I have to, like when sharing with other GIMP for Windows users, or need to load Photoshop files.

MACUPDATE: The link to the developer on this page is mislabeled, it reads 'GIMP On OS X'. The link is correct. The label should read 'GIMP.ORG'. "GIMP On OS X' was a separate project of GIMP, headed by an independent developer with the avatar 'Lisanet', who created custom builds of GIMP from the official gimp.org release. These custom GIMP On OS X builds had additional features and some mods in the menu structure to make easier for users who used Photoshop. The GIMP On OS X project is deprecated, and hasn't been updated since Jan 2017. This label is left over from the time when Macupdate actually had two landing pages for GIMP, one for the GIMP.org build and one for the builds by 'lisanet' for the GIMP On OS X project. Here's the link to the deprecated project to validate what I'm saying: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gimponosx/ it even says on there 'Superseded by the official Gimp release: http://www.gimp.org'

2.10.12 on Mojave quits upon launch (without even a startup banner window). I tried both the torrent download and the direct download with the same results. My copy of 2.10.10 still works fine

Might the System Requirements be wrong? Shouldn't they be from OS X 10 . 10 and higher?. Because OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) doesn't accept this one.

Brandon, thank you for your reaction. I'm still uncertain if this version is ment for OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) and above, or OS X 10.10 and above. Because via your link the version is still ment for Mavericks and above.It is not a disaster: version 2.10.10 still works fine on my Mavericks!

Please accept my apologies for the confusion!
We post information only from official sources.
In this case we just announced the System Requirements from developer's web-site (OS X 10.9 or later).

@Slurp, I have no problem running GIMP 2.10.12 on Mavericks 10.9.5. If you previously had, or still have an older version of GIMP still installed on the Mac you are trying to run 2.10.12 on, you may want remove it, and remove the preferences files.
