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.

Dear all,

I finally had some time this week end to look at how a script-fu could call filters from the G'MIC plug-in directly, without having to use the command-line version 'gmic'. This was not too hard at all, since the GIMP plug-in API eases a lot of work. So, now it is possible to do so. Please, take a look at the example script I provide in the G'MIC source package :

I've started to update the plug-in on the G'MIC website. Already available for Linux, should be available for Windows before the end of the day.
I didn't change the version number since this is only a small patch that has been finally applied on the plug-in code.

Let me know if you think this is a useful stuff.


Here in th registry i saw a plugin that require and call GMIC

i can't remember the name now
(or if was a python script)

You can already call a g'mic command line from a python-fu. Of course you need g'mic command line installed and not only gmic4gimp. To call it from a script-fu a solution could be to create a second menu entry called g'mic command line where a string as command line will be the single parameter. Then any script or plug-in could call it.

I only see the tarball and the .deb files.

What about the direct link that is included in the description?

My first attempt, the direct link just dropped me off at the sourceforge website. I came back later and the direct link uploaded a win32 zip file. Guess it was being picky beforehand.

This is mainly a maintenance version, with some bug corrections. One filter has been added, allowing to transform images according to polar transforms.

I'm happy to announce the version of the G'MIC plug-in for GIMP. It defines some new filters, and improve some of the existing ones. You are welcome to test it ! Regards, David.

G'MIC package has been updated to version This is a quite stable version, hope no minor releases will be done for a quite long time.

It's a very quick and small update of the version, which corrects two small bugs and which add new entries for creating 'animated' versions of filters, i.e. filters that create image sequences from a set of starting parameters to a set of ending parameters. Two screenshots of this particular feature follows : and
