G’MIC – GIMP Plugin With 230+ Image Effect and Filter. G’MIC (GREYC’s Magic for Image Computing) is an open and full-featured framework for image processing, providing several different user interfaces to convert/ manipulate/ filter/ visualize generic image datasets, from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images.
G’MIC – GIMP Plugin With 230+ Image Effect and Filter
GIMP Plugin called G’MIC has predefined preset for image processing along with flexibility for creative applications. It has a very lightweight core that is mature code and comes with a complete set of manipulation and filter commands which operate on a stack of images.
G’MIC has been made available as an easy-to-use plug-in for GIMP. It extends this retouching software capabilities by offering a large number of pre-defined image filters and effects. Of course, the plug-in is highly customizable and it is possible to add your own custom G’MIC-written filters in it.
GREYC’s Magic Image Computing (G’MIC) provide important functionalities for image retouching tool which has been made available as a GIMP plugin. G’MIC comes with a large number of pre-defined image filters and effects (more than 230) and works on Linux, Windows and Mac OS.

G’MC Review – Plugin Image Filter and Effect for GIMP
G’MIC is focused on the design of possibly complex pipelines for converting, manipulating, filtering and visualizing generic 1d/2d/3d multi-spectral image datasets. This includes of course color images, but also more complex data as image sequences or 3d(+t) volumetric float-valued datasets.
G’MIC is an open framework: the default script language can be extended with custom G’MIC-written commands, defining thus new image available filters or effects. By the way, it already contains a substantial set of pre-defined image processing algorithms and pipelines (more than 1000).
G’MIC has been designed with portability in mind, and runs on different platforms (Windows, Unix, MacOSX). It is distributed under the CeCILL license (GPL-compatible). Since 2008, it has been developed in the Image Team of the GREYC laboratory, in Caen/France, by permanent researchers working in the field of image processing on a daily basis.
