GIMP for Unix-like systems

Install GIMP flatpak

Warnings and information

  • Flatpak build available in: x86-64 and AArch64 (note: i386 and ARM-32 versions used to be published, yet are now stuck at GIMP 2.10.14 and 2.10.22 respectively).

  • 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 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

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.

Third Party Downloads

Third party packages are not officially supported by the GIMP project. Therefore you should report issues to the packagers first, before reporting to the GIMP team. We only list some of these package systems here because they are widely used FLOSS projects, though we won't list projects providing very outdated versions.


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 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 install --cask gimp.

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

on Microsoft Store

GIMP on the Microsoft Store is the same as the direct link installer. If you wish to install through the store, we recommend using the provided store link as our team cannot vouch for third-party packages of our code.

Warnings and information

  • Supported OS: Windows 10 or newer

  • This is an all-in-one installer containing the following versions of GIMP: x86 32-bit and 64-bit, ARM 64-bit (experimental). It will automatically install the appropriate version.
  • 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...
