The G'MIC plug-in for GIMP proposes a set of various filters to apply on your images, including artistic effects, image denoising and enhancement algorithms, 3D renderers, etc.. It is a quite large plug-in, integrating a lot of different effects.

This plug-in is able to :

  • Propose an image preview window for each available filter.
  • Manage multi-layers inputs and outputs. G'MIC defines filters to compose layers or create animations from static images.
  • Update his list of filter definitions from the Internet, so it is able to improve itself over time.
  • Allow any user to add its own custom filters in it, written in the G'MIC language interpreted by the internal image processing engine.

G'MIC has been written by the author of GREYCstoration, a GIMP plug-in dedicated to image denoising and smoothing. All former GREYCstoration algorithms have been improved and integrated into G'MIC.

Latest version of G'MIC is numbered 1.5.5.0 :

A quite complete overview of available image effects can be seen on the official G'MIC plug-in page.

Hi, I'm happy to announce thee release of the 1.4.7.4 version of the G'MIC package, including the plug-in for GIMP. The Changelog is available here :

This is (probably) the last version of the 1.4.7.x series.
Hope you'll enjoy it.

I'm happy to announce the release of the 1.4.7.3 version of the G'MIC package.
The changelog is available here : http://www.flickr.com/groups/gmic/discuss/72157625642942193/
Hope you'll enjoy it !

The 1.4.7.0 update of the plug-in has been released. Some new filters, some optimizations and simplifications have been made for this version.

I always look forward to the next version ...
It is thanks to You we can talk - GIMP eternally alive !
And it is You are creating an advantage - thank You.
Have or not have GMIC - creates a big difference

Does anyone know why the best set of filters GMIC is not installed automatically with the Gimp?

Because the GIMP staff want maintain the code as simple as possible

GIMP is developed in pure C, and C++ is one language that seems to be not welcome for code contributions.
That's their choice, why not.
I simply hope they will retain the compatibility of the plug-in API in their future versions.
I won't develop a new G'MIC interface to GIMP from scratch again !

Without GMIC Gimp seems (at least for me) very poor. For beginners (children and young) members of his installation is a problem - why the best additives are not added to the first installation of Gimp - as with other scripts or plug-ins ?
GIMP Plugin Registry does not affect the contents of the installation package ?
All you can install yourself - but the best should be included automatically.

You provided a example of script fu calling GMIC but seems nobody could find it ,because is not in the Docs or reference
I think will be a good idea post it (here link http://gmic.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/gmic/gmic/src/gmic_in_script.scm?...) as a new script in the registry , (with a name as Script fu_gmic template ) so may be noticed and anyway easily found

BTW i suppose also python scripts could call gmic..correct?

PS a brand new script fu that use gmic is here http://www.registry.gimp.org/node/24930
and is maybe the best "cartoon " script i tried

Today, I've released a small update of the G'MIC package, namely the 1.4.5.1 version. Here are very few changes compared to the 1.4.5.0 (and that sounds like a positive thing to me :) ) :

- Raised precision for the sliders in the G'MIC for GIMP plug-in (requested by PhotoComiX).

- Windows version of the plug-in now output log messages in a specific log file instead of the standard output (which requires a terminal, knowing this is pain to get a decent terminal on Windows). The log file is located in the default Temporary path, and is named 'gmic_log.txt'. People can now look at this file to see what G'MIC commands have been used to generate the result in the plug-in
(setting the 'Verbose' mode is mandatory by the way).

- New bash completion file has been created. It is installed by default when installing the debian package for G'MIC. That is useful to auto-complete command names and arguments when invoking 'gmic' from the command line (with the TAB key).

- Corrected a bug (reported by zonderr) related to the invalid reading of custom filter files in the GIMP plug-in when last character of the file was not a carriage return.

Hope you'll enjoy it !

As always, it is already available for Windows and Linux. Mac version to follow (I guess).
