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 :

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

Partha just compiled G'MIC for 64-bit Windows with the caveate that it will only work with a static compiled GIMP (which his version 2.7.3 64-bit is). The only thing I found is that Internet refresh doesn't work, however, it did find my presets that I had from 32-bit so I bet it found the refresh from that too. Happy I am. Now looking for 64-bit PSPI (I doth ask too much; lol). Can download all these things at Partha's site. :)

I was try to create a cool graphic for my site but it just won't compile. I am also using 64-Bit Windows. I guess I will keep trying.

Hope you don't mind a shameless plug ;)

Downloaded 32 bits linux version, put gmic_gimp into the plugin directory (followed the instructions in the readme) but it seems not to be installed if I looked under the procedure browser so I guess I am doing something wrong.

Trying to instal GMIC in an Ubuntu 11.04 OS failed sofar so what am I doing wrong????

Oh yes I am using Gimp 2.6.11

By the way I have installed GMIC with succes with the XP OS but the readme is wrong (the executable is an installer)!

Save yourself a lot of aggravation and use the debian file for Ubuntu, instead.

I think David should make a separate readme for the installer because it has confused a lot of people.

Gmic_gimp should be placed in:
$ HOME/.gimp-2.x/plug-ins / '(for local installation) - with direct execution.
It should still download and install the deb package: gmic_1.4.9.2_i386.deb
For me, just so it works in the GIMP 2.7.2 (Ubuntu 11.04)

Thanks a lot I have installed an older one (1.4.8) with the package manager from Ubuntu.

Also forgotten in the Readme that GMIC has some dependencies with other packages :-(

Later on I will try to install the latest version.
