Community-supported sources

These packages are provided by third parties in the wider Glimpse community. We sometimes merge changes to the codebase they provide us with but they are not directly supported by the Glimpse project.


The Glimpse project does not currently support the MacOS platform, but we are actively working on it.

As a temporary work-around, we recommend using the Seashore variant of the GNU Image Manipulation Program instead.

Build our code

We have provided instructions for building and packaging the Glimpse Image Editor source code on our project wiki:
