Download the latest version of GIMP for Mac. Free and open-source software for creating and editing images. For several years now, GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation.

Sharpen your skills. The great flexibility of this program brings the downside that basic and advanced tasks are complicated to complete.

Unless things have changed drastically in Catalina (and from what I read, they may have, and not for the better), you need to left click on the installer and when it opens drag the resulting icon onto your desktop, after which you'll get a warning about it coming from a non-Apple source and so on. Tell it to install anyway. Whereupon it will install. Or should, anyway -- Catalina seems to have broken several things, including some photo-related ones.

Yes. Open GIMP; also if you cannot access e.g. Desktop files with the File → Open dialog, you can drag a Desktop file icon to the GIMP window to open it.

This is a fault of the GIMP (GTK?) File → Open dialog; in MacOS, if you try to access a “protected' directory (Downloads, Documents, Desktop, …) a requester *should* *open*, asking if you want to give your program full disk access, and transferring you to System Preferences → Security & Privacy when answering “OK”. Please, change this behaviour.

And, for what concerns the issue 'dragging the GIMP icon to the Applications directory', just dragging under MacOS on the same volume creates in Applications a soft link to the executable. If you want *move* the whole executable to Applications, use Command-Drag instead.

Current Stable Version

The current stable release of GIMP is 2.10.18 (2020-02-23).

We think your OS is Well, we don't actually know. Either JavaScript is disabled, or I am not working quite right... So I am showing you all the options.

Show downloads for GNU/LinuxOS XMicrosoft WindowsAll

GIMP for Unix-like systems

If available, the official package from your Unix-like distribution is the recommended method of installing GIMP!

The flatpak build is new and has known limitations, though it will likely provide faster updates, following GIMP releases closely.
Therefore choose your installation medium according to your needs.

Flatpak build available in: i386, x86-64, ARM and AArch64.

Flatpak additional instructions

The flatpak link above should open your software installer and prompt you to install GIMP. Yet it may not work out-of-the-box on some platforms since the flatpak technology is new. If that is the case, ensure flatpak is installed and if clicking the link still does not prompt to install GIMP, then manually install by command line:

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

Once installed, it will be made available exactly the same way as other applications (menus, desktop overview, or any specific application launch process used by your desktop).
If this is not the case, we suggest to report a bug to your desktop or distribution asking for proper support of flatpak. In the meantime, you can still run it by command line (not as the recommended method, only a workaround):

flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP//stable

This installation will also provide regular update. You don't have to come back on this page and install again (it will not work!) when a new version of GIMP is released. Instead if your distribution and/or desktop has a good support for flatpak, it should propose to perform updates.
Once again, if your distribution does not have proper support, you can always fall back to using the following command line:

flatpak update

Systems without flatpak support

GIMP can also run on Solaris and is available for the BSD family of systems such as FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

Please refer to the documentation for your Unix-like system on the installation of software.

GIMP for macOS

Note: the currently available package provides GIMP 2.10.14 and has not yet updated to the latest version, GIMP 2.10.18. We're working on that, please check back later.

The download links above will attempt to download GIMP from one of our trusted mirror servers. If the mirrors do not work or you would rather download directly from our server, you can get the direct download here.

Supported OS: macOS 10.9 Mavericks or over

Since the 2.8.2 version, GIMP runs on OSX natively. No X11 environment is required.

Native build

The official GIMP 2.10 DMG installer (linked above) is a stock GIMP build without any add-ons. Just open the downloaded DMG and drag and drop GIMP into your 'Applications' folder.

The SHA256 hash sum for gimp-2.10.14-x86_64-1.dmg is: 52654d85f894834f6c134c724beff3eddf212a1bda317299314322cfeff97e52

Check it on VirusTotal: gimp-2.10.14-x86_64-1.dmg

Older Downloads

Previous installers for OSX can be found here: download.gimp.org.

Mac

Macports

An easy way to compile and install GIMP and other great Free software on your Mac is by using Macports. The installer allows you to choose from a large directory of packages. To install gimp using Macports, you simply do sudo port install gimp once you have Macports installed.

Last we checked, the GIMP port file pointed to the current stable release and we have reports from people who've built GIMP successfully this way.

Homebrew

Homebrew is similar to Macports and provides packages (aka formulas) to install, either by compiling them from source or by using pre-made binaries. There are indications that there is now a formula for GIMP, installable with: brew tap homebrew/cask && brew cask install gimp.

NOTE! Please be aware that it was announced recently that Homebrew is using analytics. To turn this off in homebrew then run: brew analytics off
You can read more about this on Brew Analytics.

Fink

Fink is a package repository that offer mostly precompiled binaries. It provides the apt-get command known to e.g. Debian and Ubuntu users, and installing GIMP is as easy as sudo apt-get install gimp once you have installed the Fink installer.
If there's no binary package, then fink install gimp will compile GIMP from source.

Disclaimer: we haven't been able to determine if it is possible to install or build recent GIMP from Fink. Last we checked, GIMP 2.6.12 appears to be the most recent GIMP package that is offered there.

GIMP for Windows

Updated on 2020-03-24: GIMP 2.10.18 installer revision 2
Fixes GEGL issue #231, which caused corrupted images once the swap file size reached 2 GiB

The download links above will attempt to download GIMP from one of our trusted mirror servers. If the mirrors do not work or you would rather download directly from our server, you can get the direct download here.

Supported OS: Windows 7 or over

These links download the official GIMP installer for Windows (~200 MB). The installer contains both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of GIMP, and will automatically use the appropriate one.

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file sharing system. It works by downloading GIMP from a distributed network of BitTorrent users, and may improve download speed dramatically. Choosing this option will download the torrent file for the GIMP installer. You may need to install a torrent client to make use of this file. Learn more...

Hash Sum

The SHA256 hash sum for gimp-2.10.18-setup-2.exe is: bf6ce59587e63e1e8bab923e7dfdaa0f2c8bd3ac4d0ced602f3c063f9e32465c

These links download language-specific Windows installers for GIMP's local help. By default, they will place the help files with your GIMP installation.

Note: GIMP uses online help by default. If you want to use this local help offline, you will need to change GIMP's help settings.

  1. In GIMP, select [Edit] > [Preferences] > [Help System]
  2. For 'User manual', select 'Use a locally installed copy'
  3. Under 'Help Browser', you can choose between your system's web browser and GIMP's help browser plugin (if available).
