Software: Add Filters To Gimp

I spend a lot of time reading other Linux blogs, and subscribe to dozens of Linux resources on Twitter. It’s amazing what you can learn about Linux by doing so!

Over the weekend, there was a great article from TechRepublic about a GIMP filter add-on that I somehow missed in the repositories. That add-on is called G’MIC.

If you use Gimp, the most popular Linux image editing software, you can never have too many filters! Head over to your Software Manager and search for GMIC.

Once it’s installed, open GIMP, and you’ll find G’MIC at the bottom of the Filters tab.

There are tons of effects available, and you can spend hours playing with them, learning how to make them give you the look that you want for your image editing.
