  • when your mum calls you by your full name
    There is a bunch of folks who forked Gimp because they find the name offensive. Since they still have to refer to it they use euphemisms (such a "upstream") or call it "GNU Imp".
  • I REALLY want to create TakaMori fanart and post it here. | 2021-05-01
    Glimps is a good one. It has pressure sensitivity support for drawing tablets. If you want something closer to Illustrator, Inkscape is your best shot.

    They're named by committee. No committee would have come up with "GIMP" (also forked as "Glimpse").
  • Founder of Adobe and developer of PDFs dies at age 81
    I've been enjoying the Glimpse fork a lot more these days.
  • The amazing Grant Sanderson (3Blue1Brown) demonstrates seam carving in Julia.

    Am I missing something? Because the UI they show on looks almost identical to GIMP's UI. The only difference I can spot is they got rid of the mascot.

    I’ve found that technical types often don’t care about issues like this... but the name GIMP is imo an abelist slur and I really wish they would change it. Sadly the devs don’t seem to care, but there is a fork called Glimpse that aims to remedy this. If any of y’all care about removing discriminatory language from open source projects, please promote Glimpse!

  • Only one app is stopping me switching to Linux
    what about glimpse? it's a gimp fork.
  • I am trying to install Photoshop CC 2015 by playonlinux. However it comes up with this. What I have to do? Thanks
    What about Glimpse? I looked at Krita website and it looks like it's focused at drawing, not image editing.
  • I'm on the fence again of going back to W10 full time - and feeling tired | 2020-12-29
    Glimpse's primary purpose was to change the name from GIMP to something more presentable.
  • Linux Alternative | 2020-12-24
    No, "glimpse" is a fork of GIMP, where their number one "primary objective" is to "fix the problematic name".
