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 32-bit one, as it is compatible with the widest range of systems.

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.


We distribute Glimpse Image Editor 0.2.0 on Flathub for end users. We also partially support Canonical’s Snap Store.

To assist users of some Linux distributions, an AppImage is being developed. #108


If flatpak is not already installed on your machine, follow these instructions:

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:

To install the single-file bundle at the command line:

$ flatpak install glimpse-0.2.0.flatpak

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.


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:
