Required to build GIMP

November 29, 2015

Recently the developers announced the release of GIMP 2.9.2. Congratulations!!

I have updated my builds as well. My builds are pulled directly from the master sources and hence are usually not in synch with the release version and consquently have a higher number. The installer, the Mac version, and the portable versions have been updated. Also, I am providing a portable Windows version with color management patches provided by Elle Stone. She has been working with the developers to get these patches incorporated into the master trunk. G'MIC has also been updated to the git pull from yesterday.

Gimp 2.9.3 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.
