I am providing a special build of the 2.9 GIMP series with color management patches provided by Elle Stone. She has been working with the developers to get these patches incorporated in to the master trunk. The code is under review. In the meantime, you can download the portable version to enjoy the color patched version now. You can explore all about color management at her site.

I have also updated GIMP 2.9 series to the latest git pull from today. G'MIC has also been updated to git pull from today.

Gimp 2.9.1 Running G'MIC

Important: Uninstall previous builds from the target installation location. Installation has been streamlined as much as possible.


Download and double-click on the installer and follow the instructions on your screen. The portable versions are self-extracting 7z archives. Double-click and extract to a location where you have write privileges.

File Association

Remove all references to GIMP from the registry and then use Windows to associate this version of GIMP with your desired image formats.

Mac OS X

Download the zipped App and unzip it in your Application Folder.
