Would you like to help us create an end user wiki?

Someone that's also rolling out to 200 school computers has started hosting one for us, and they need your help!

Get started here: github.com/glimpse-editor/Glim

When it comes to progress on NX, there are exciting things happening already!

Check out our design repository here: github.com/glimpse-editor/glim

@brainblasted has also been doing some excellent work with gtk4-rs in preparation for us to port GEGL and BABL to that framework: github.com/gtk-rs/gtk4-rs/pull

This month we are taking a look back at everything we have achieved since we released 0.1.0.

That means a blow-by-blow account of which objectives we have achieved, how we have spent donated cash, and the latest download figures.

We also lay out our goals for 2021, and our plans for what happens beyond that.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us. Without you, this project would not have been possible.

We would like to thank everyone for their responses and feedback!

Our conclusions:
* Github is deeply unpopular
* We need to better communicate that we did try the self-hosting route
* Support for the Codeberg idea drops when we clarify we can't support issues/pull requests too

In the short term we hope that enabling people to submit bug fixes and feature requests by email instead of requiring a Github account will be helpful to our community and viewed as a step in the right direction. 🙂

Based on a great suggestion we had from our community (thank you @jhaye!), we are now experimenting with the possibility of accepting bug reports and feature requests via email.

You can find the necessary details on the "Contribute" page: glimpse-editor.github.io/contr

Did you know we have an FAQ answer for why we use GitHub? You can read it here: glimpse-editor.github.io/about

In recognition of the fact some have moral objections to using GitHub, we are thinking of possibly mirroring (but not migrating) our project on Codeberg. What do you think?

It's the blog post for October 2020 🎉

We've re-jigged how we support Windows, published 0.2.0 across more platforms, started work on 0.2.2, helped progress GTK4 as part of our Glimpse NX efforts, and much more.


This morning, we have delivered a new update for 0.2.0 through Flathub 🎉

The release is the same, but now based on GNOME Platform version 3.38 instead of 3.36. The standalone download has also been updated.


Congratulations to GNU Image Manipulation Program developers for their latest release, 2.10.22: gimp.org/news/2020/10/04/gimp-

We are already reviewing the change logs for 2.10.20 and 2.10.22 so we can understand which security/bug fixes we need to backport for 0.2.2.

Glimpse is a free open source photo and image editor, a libre alternative to Adobe Photoshop. You can follow the project at:

➡️ @glimpse

It's available for Linux and Windows from the Glimpse website at glimpse-editor.github.io

Glimpse is forked from the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), and is run by members of the Fediverse community.

We are pleased to announce that you can now install 0.2.0 via the Snap Store!

Our apologies for the delay. The update started rolling out from 2020-09-28.

Did you know the logo is actually a 3D cube?

This short video clip was made by James Daniel last year when the original artwork was being developed.

We are now tracking the issue here: github.com/glimpse-editor/Glim

If you have installed 0.1.2 through the Ubuntu Software Center, we are trying to resolve the delay on the 0.2.0 update and are working on backup plans.

We have just updated our explainer for how we run our project: glimpse-editor.github.io/about

The way we govern our project has not changed, but we do now better explain what "the governance team" is, and how our new Discord server is used.

Good news AppImage fans! Our automated builds now generate a version of from the tip of our development branch, and you can use supplementary tools to keep it updated.

Thank you to @azubieta for their amazing work 🎉


For those who installed 0.1.2 through the Ubuntu Software Center as a Snap, please accept our apologies for the delayed 0.2.0 update.

If you would like to upgrade today, try installing via Flathub: flathub.org/apps/details/org.g

If you’re a Pinebook Pro user, we confirmed this evening that the Flathub version of 0.2.0 works out-of-the-box on that machine. 🥳

The buildbot server we use as part of the Flathub publish process creates ARM64 and AARCH64 builds automatically to future-proof our project.

Hold onto your hats! We now have an automatic continuously-released Linux AppImage (without Python 2) that follows the tip of the development branch.

Our testing is still ongoing, and we expect to produce stable builds in next week or so.
