Glimpse Image Editor
Glimpse is an open source image editor based on the GNU Image Manipulation Program 2.10.18. The goal is to experiment with new ideas and expand the use of free/libre software.
A new name and logo, a cleaner UI, and fewer "easter eggs" make an already amazing open source software package feel more enterprise-ready. For improved performance and security on mission-critical workstations, we only include Python 2 runtime components in securely-sandboxed Linux packages.
Easier To Deploy
Our lightweight Windows installers can be easily imported into existing centralized software management tools. We also manage our own Linux packaging and updates on Flathub and the Snap Store, so you always get our latest security updates and bug fixes.
We have added keyboard shortcuts and configuration settings from PhotoGIMP to make your transition from expensive commercial image editing software easier. Future versions of Glimpse Image Editor will bundle additional third-party plugins, and make further tweaks to improve accessibility.
Cooperating, Not Competing
We pass along a portion of our donations to the GNU Image Manipulation Program contributors, provide appropriate credit through our UI, and work closely with that project to share our improvements and resolve problems. Our objective is to expand their userbase, not replace it.
Planning For The Future
"Glimpse NX" will provide a lightweight newcomer-friendly image editing experience with accessibility as its primary focus. We will provide more details about that exciting new open source software project as it develops.
