GIMP 2.8.14 Released, Install on Linux Ubuntu And Mint

GIMP 2.8.14 Released, Install on Linux Ubuntu And Mint

GIMP is an acronym for GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed program for such tasks as photo retouching, image composition and image authoring.

It has many capabilities. It can be used as a simple paint program, an expert quality photo retouching program, an online batch processing system, a mass production image renderer, an image format converter, etc.

GIMP is expandable and extensible. It is designed to be augmented with plug-ins and extensions to do just about anything. The advanced scripting interface allows everything from the simplest task to the most complex image manipulation procedures to be easily scripted.

Instead, developers bring a fresh batch of bug fixes to the table aimed at improving the overall stability, security and style of the famous app.
  • Brush sizes from plugins are no longer distorted 
  • ‘More robust’ loading of .XCF files
  • Widget direction now matches interface language (e.g. RTL)
  • Security improvements to the script-fu-server

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otto-kesselgulasch/gimp
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gimp
