GIMP (development version) for Unix-like systems

We provide 2 Flatpak unstable builds: on Flathub for point development release and on the GNOME nightly repository. The development releases are manually selected and tested snapshots of the code, hence deemed presentable to the public whereas nightlies are untested by definition. Nightlies are automated builds at random point in development process.
If there are no development releases, the latest stable version will be provided instead in the development repository whereas the nightly repository will always contain moving work-in-progress code.

Install GIMP development flatpak (unstable) Install GIMP nightly flatpak (very unstable)

Flatpak builds available in: x86-64 (both development and nightly builds) and AArch64 (development releases only).

Flatpak additional instructions

If the link above doesn't open your software installer, install with following command:

flatpak install --user https://flathub.org/beta-repo/appstream/org.gimp.GIMP.flatpakref

Run with following command line:

flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP//beta

To update:

flatpak update

Note: If you installed both the stable and beta repositories, the desktop (menus, etc.) will see only one version at a time. To make sure your desktop sees the development version, run this command:

flatpak make-current --user org.gimp.GIMP beta

Or respectively to restore the stable version as the visible GIMP application:

flatpak make-current --user org.gimp.GIMP stable

You may also create shortcuts running specifically one of the other version.

Systems without flatpak support

GIMP can also run on Solaris and is available for the BSD family of systems such as FreeBSD and OpenBSD. Third party development packages may be available for these systems. Please refer to the documentation for your Unix-like system on the installation of software.

Most Unix-like systems make it very easy to install a development environment for building software from source. If you can't find a GIMP package in your distribution's package repository or want to build a more recent GIMP version that what is available there, then see the source code section.

Automatic development builds

Automatic builds (sometimes called "nightlies") are generated at regular intervals by our Continuous Integration process. This allows to run the last version of our code, though it also means you will get possibly very unstable work-in-progress, just as it is made. Therefore ⚠️ be aware that you would be running very experimental code! ⚠️ These builds are meant to test future GIMP versions and help us debug, we do not advise to use these for production.

  1. Go to GIMP's scheduled pipelines listing and click the "Last Pipeline" ID listed next to the Windows installer item.
  2. Select the job named "win-installer-nightly"
  3. Click the "Browse" button
  4. Navigate to the
    build/windows/installer/_Output/
    directory
  5. Finally click the
    gimp-2.99.11-setup.exe
    file to download and install it.
Note
Additionally to the code being experimental, these automated installers themselves are an experimental convenience and may still have various issues. In particular, they are not humanly tested and are unsigned, unlike released versions.
