This is the download page for the development version of GIMP.
That means these builds are a work-in-progress. Please proceed with caution because they may be unstable. If a crash does occur, please report it!
If you're looking for the stable GIMP 2.10.28 release instead, you can find it on our downloads page.
The current development release of GIMP is 2.99.6 (2021-04-26).

We provide 2 Flatpak unstable builds: on Flathub for point
development release and on the GNOME nightly repository.
The development releases are manually selected and tested
snapshots of the code, hence deemed presentable to the public
whereas nightlies are untested by definition. Nightlies are
automated builds at random point in development process.
If there are no development releases, the latest stable version will be provided instead in the development repository whereas the nightly repository will always contain moving work-in-progress code.
Flatpak builds available in: x86-64 (both development and nightly builds) and AArch64 (development releases only).
If the link above doesn't open your software installer, install with following command:
flatpak install --user https://flathub.org/beta-repo/appstream/org.gimp.GIMP.flatpakref
Run with following command line:
flatpak run org.gimp.GIMP//beta
Note: If you installed both the stable and beta repositories, the desktop (menus, etc.) will see only one version at a time. To make sure your desktop sees the development version, run this command:
flatpak make-current --user org.gimp.GIMP beta
Or respectively to restore the stable version as the visible GIMP application:
flatpak make-current --user org.gimp.GIMP stable
You may also create shortcuts running specifically one of the other version.
GIMP can also run on Solaris and is available for the BSD family of systems such as FreeBSD and OpenBSD. Third party development packages may be available for these systems. Please refer to the documentation for your Unix-like system on the installation of software.
Most Unix-like systems make it very easy to install a development environment for building software from source. If you can't find a GIMP package in your distribution's package repository or want to build a more recent GIMP version that what is available there, then see the source code section.
There is no macOS package yet, sorry. 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.
These links download the official development GIMP installer for Windows (~100MB). The installer contains the 64-bit version of GIMP.
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...

Automatic builds (sometimes called "nightlies") are generated at regular intervals by our Continuous Integration process. This allows to run the last version of our code, though it also means you will get possibly very unstable work-in-progress, just as it is made. Therefore ⚠️ be aware that you would be running very experimental code! ⚠️ These builds are meant to test future GIMP versions and help us debug, we do not advise to use these for production.

GIMP releases available from gimp.org and its mirrors contain the source code and have to be compiled in order to be installed on your system.

We had a server move a while back that caused us to lose our existing mirrors (moved from physical to virtual server and to an environment that doesn't allow FTP access). On the plus side, we are now able to offer rsync access to download.gimp.org.
If you are running one of the existing GIMP mirrors, or want to create a new one, please contact us to get your rsync credentials.
