Okay, so GIMP 2.9.8 is finally out. On-canvas gradients editing, faster color space conversions, slightly improved PSD support, bugfixes etc.

@patdavid @GIMP I really wish we had Flatpaks for all the tools, including the development versions.

It's a bit ironic that it's much easier to install a lot of the FOSS graohics tools and the dev versions of all on Windows and macOS than it is on Linux. 😐

Hopefully that will change soon.

(I wonder if we should start a thread on the forum about it and ask people to help out?)

A new 2.9.8 release of @GIMP is now available (windows and macOS builds to follow)!

Have a look at some of the great new features (on-canvas gradient editing, clip warning, wayland support, paste in place, and more)!


One of my favorite portraits from LGM2014 was of @ryanlerch

The beard, hair, expression and everything came together very nicely I thought.

Noticed a bunch of new followers, so: Welcome aboard!

My illustration in three panels of the Dream Quest of Unkown Kadath, by HPL.(This was him at his most Dunsany, which i like) HPL is a problem. Hopeless, Maine can be said to be part of his legacy, in part, but we reject his racism vehemently.
