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
Therefore choose your installation medium according to your needs.
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:
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.
Supported OS: macOS 10.12 Sierra or newer
These are vanilla builds without any third-party add-ons. Just open the downloaded DMG and drag and drop GIMP into your "Applications" folder.
Since version 2.8.2, GIMP runs on macOS/OSX natively. No X11 environment is required.
Previous installers for macOS/OSX can be found on download.gimp.org.
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.

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.
Supported OS: Windows 7 or newer
