If you people don't know, recently Bobby Moss was forced to leave the Glimpse project due to his employer. This means I have to take over handling the fork.

As of current I don't have time to maintain it, but I plan to get 0.2.2 released during my easter break. Which will be the last version of fork-glimpse before it goes maintinence/hotfix-only.

Glimpse NX is now the main focus of the rest of the contributors, which I have minimal involvement in, in terms of coding. So I hope you will support their work going forward.

Hello everyone! As you have noticed, we are running late on the 0.2.2 release.

There are packaging issues on Windows, the Snap Store and our automated AppImage. We are working hard to resolve them so we can start our two weeks of beta testing as soon as possible.

Happy holidays to all of our users, contributors and followers that celebrate them!

2020 was a big year for , and with your support we look forward to continuing the good work in 2021.

And by "GIMP Studio Paint", we in fact mean "GIMP Paint Studio" 🤦‍♂️

We are clearly far too excited about this!

Did you know works with a plugin called "GIMP Studio Paint" that expands the range of brushes, patterns and palettes?

We now have a wiki page with instructions here: github.com/glimpse-editor/Glim

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:

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.
