Enhance your GIMP with GIMP plugins and scripts

Filed under
GIMP

In English slang, the word gimp used to denote football-challenged people in olden times, but now it is mostly used as the witty and surprisingly non-recursive acronym for an open-source image manipulation software called GIMP, all capitals. A great program, a poor man's alternative to payware stuff. But also a rich man's alternative. Why? Because you get plugins and scripts.

Like any self-respective open-source project, GIMP prides itself at being extensible. Firefox has it, GIMP has it. Plugins are the smartest way of making something good better. You do not need to make any changes to core software, you just add extra stuff. For people who use GIMP for their art work, having some of these extras is exactly what they need.

Let us explore.

Kernel and Graphics: Android Kernels, Mesa, and Vulkan 1.0.59

  • Android kernels: does upstream matter?
    There is this false narrative floating around in the dev community on how upstreaming breaks drivers and OEM code. Upstreaming breaking drivers and OEM code is not universally true- in contrast, it defies the very definition of a stable kernel. You see, each and every Android device out there runs a version of the Linux Kernel– and it doesn’t have to be the latest version all the time.
  • Mesa 17.2-RC5 Released, Final Should Come Within One Week
    The fifth and final planned release candidate of Mesa 17.2 is now available for testing.
  • Vulkan 1.0.59 Released With Shader Stencil Export
    Vulkan 1.0.59 is now available this weekend as the latest minor update to this high-performance graphics API. As usual, the bulk of this Vulkan 1.0.x point release is made up of document clarification/fixes to the text. Of those changes, nothing too notable stands out for Vulkan 1.0.59 but there is one new extension.
