Install G’MIC 2.0 Plugin For GIMP in Ubuntu Linux via PPA

Install G’MIC plugin for GIMP image editor in Ubuntu Linux. G’MIC is a full featured GIMP Plugin for image processing. The latest release, G’MIC 2.0 comes with a new versatile interface, based on Qt. It also brings smart coloring, an original automatic line-art coloring filter.

G’MIC is an open-source project that provides a variety of user interfaces for manipulating generic image data, that is to say, 2D or 3D multispectral images (or sequences) with floating-point pixel values. This includes, of course, “classic” color images. The popularity of G’MIC mostly comes from the plug-in it provides for GIMP (since 2009). To date, there are more than 480 different filters and effects to apply to your images, which considerably enlarges the list of image processing filters available by default in GIMP.

G’MIC also provides a powerful and autonomous command-line interface, which is complementary to the CLI tools you can find in the famous ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick projects. There is also a web service G’MIC Online, allowing to apply image processing effects directly from a browser. Other (but less well known) G’MIC-based interfaces exist: a webcam streaming tool ZArt, a plug-in for Krita, a subset of filters available in Photoflow, Blender or Natron… All these interfaces are based on the CImg and libgmic libraries, that are portable, thread-safe and multi-threaded, via the use of OpenMP.
