Install G’MIC 2.0.0 Pre – Image Processing Plugin for GIMP

G’MIC is an open source and full featured framework for image processing, providing several different user interfaces to convert, filter, manipulate, and visualize generic image datasets, ranging from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images.

The developers have released a video showcasing whats to come in this release when fully ready.

This is a preview of the current state of the incoming new G’MIC plug-in for GIMP, recoded from scratch in Qt, by Sébastien Fourey at the GREYC Lab.
This is intended to be a ‘universal’ plug-in in the future, in the sense that several host software should be supported (GIMP, Krita, Stand-alone app…).

Here you can already see the cool features : a filter search engine, a nice preview widget, and so on..

Also David Tschumperlé has implemented a new interactive filter for quickly creating color masks from images. It’s already available in the +GIMP plug-in, for people working with the 2.0.0_pre development version of G’MIC

Basically, the filter opens an interactive window where you have to move your mouse over the colors you want keep (with left mouse button clicked), and then do the same for the colors you want to reject (right mouse button). The filter then tries to guess what colors to keep for the whole image, based on a very simple learning algorithm.

The video below shows how this filter can be used to quickly change the (ugly 🙂 ) color of a car !
