Glimpse Image Editor was developed in two streams.

The “fork” stream was already providing a workable solution for people who dislike the “gimp” name or encounter barriers when they advocate the GNU Image Manipulation Program in schools, universities and workplaces. You can read more about our development priorities and our target userbase here:

The “rewrite” stream (also known as “Glimpse NX”) aimed to create a lightweight new interface for pre-existing GNU Image Manipulation Program libraries and frameworks. We will provide more details about that project in coming months.

Discussion and Technical Support

Note: Our Matrix channels were deprecated in January 2021. More information


We are no longer accepting new donations. If you can afford to do so, then we recommend donating to GNU Image Manipulation Program, the upstream project on which our fork relies.

Community Supported Channels

We welcome members of our community starting their own unofficial support forums and communication channels. Please note that we do not monitor or moderate those platforms, and cannot guarantee they are a safe and welcoming environment for everyone. If you choose to use them, you do so at your own risk.
