Windows

Glimpse Image Editor 0.2.0 is supported on 32-bit and 64-bit systems running Windows 7 or later. If you experience problems during installation, you should review the Known Issues page before reporting a bug.

If you do not know which installer to download, we recommend that you choose the 64-bit one as it is the best supported.

Glimpse Image Editor 0.2.0 Installer

This installs a native x64 version of Glimpse Image Editor 0.2.0 with G’MIC. You should choose this option if you know you are running a 64-bit version of Windows and do not need to upgrade an existing Glimpse Image Editor 0.1.2 installation.

Support for legacy 32-bit plugins is still experimental with the 64-bit Windows installer. You should review our wiki before reporting any bugs.

External Download Mirrors

These servers are not directly supported by us, and are maintained by third party developers. We strongly recommend running a virus scan on your system whenever you download the Glimpse Image Editor 0.2.0 installer from these sources.

Linux

We distribute Glimpse Image Editor 0.2.0 on Flathub for end users. We also provide a continuously-updating Linux AppImage that follows the tip of our development branch.

Flatpak

If flatpak is not already installed on your machine, follow these instructions: https://flatpak.org/setup/

Installing from Flathub

You can find Glimpse Image Editor by searching in your distribution’s software center, or you can click on this link from Flathub.

Alternatively you can install it manually at the command line:

$ flatpak install flathub org.glimpse_editor.Glimpse
Installing from other third-party Flatpak repositories

If you would prefer to use your own third party repository for dependency resolution instead of Flathub, we also provide a single-file bundle:

Snap

If snapd is not already installed on your machine, follow these instructions: https://snapcraft.io/docs/installing-snapd

Installing from Snap Store

You can find Glimpse Image Editor by searching in your distribution’s software center, or you can click on this link from the Snap Store.

Alternatively you can install it manually at the command line:

$ sudo snap install glimpse-editor

AppImage

AppImages for Linux behave much like a Universal Binary does on macOS. You download a single file containing the application and its dependencies, set executable permissions, then run it. You can find more information and links to optional update tools at https://appimage.github.io/Glimpse-Image-Editor/.

We have configured a Github Action that builds and publishes a new AppImage every time we make changes to our development branch here: https://github.com/glimpse-editor/Glimpse/releases/tag/continuous

You should select this installation option if a stable version of Glimpse Image Editor has not been provided in your package manager and you are unable to run our provided Flatpak on your system. You will also need to accept that you may have to deal with some bugs in exchange for receiving new features before everyone else does.

Please note: We do not include support for Python 2 plug-ins with our AppImage. Python 2 is now end of life, and as a result it is being phased out in many Linux distributions and package managers.

Community-supported sources

These builds are provided by third parties in the wider Linux community. We do not create, package or directly support these sources, so if you raise any bugs for them that would not apply to most Linux users, we may direct you elsewhere to get the issue fixed.

MacOS

Unfortunately Glimpse Image Editor is not supported on MacOS. We recommend either running the Windows version in a virtualized environment or sticking with the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

You may also be interested in trying Seashore, an older fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program designed specifically for MacOS. While it does have fewer features, it may still be suitable for your intended use case.

We are investigating the possibility of distributing Glimpse Image Editor through HomeBrew, a popular third-party package manager for macOS. #402

Build our code

We have provided instructions for building and packaging the Glimpse Image Editor source code on our project wiki: https://github.com/glimpse-editor/Glimpse/wiki

You can also test out our own beta and development releases by following these instructions: https://github.com/glimpse-editor/Glimpse/wiki#testing
