If we talk about quality open source software that has transcended in time, the first thing we think about is Firefox. However, there is another one that also emerges as a great application and an example that Open Source software is quality and is GIMP. Therefore, in this post, we’ll show you 3 very good extensions for GIMP and thus get even more out of this tool.

I started with GIMP, but I didn’t tell you what it was about. GIMP or GNU Image Manipulation Program is an open-source application used for image editing. We could say that it is a serious competitor to Adobe Photoshop but it is free and multi-platform.

Although it is a very complete application and has powerful features, you can even extend its functionality through extensions. These extensions, mostly designed by community members, help to cover specific user needs.

So, here are 3 extensions for GIMP you should not miss.

3 extensions for GIMP

1.- DarkTable

Although GIMP is quite complete, it does not have native support for RAW images. This format is uncompressed, i.e. it contains all the data that the camera has captured. In short, there is no loss of information.

Many professional image editors, need to use RAW images that are obtained by a good camera. So, that’s where Darktable and GIMP come to the rescue.

With Darktable you have access to the handling of this format, including Color gradient, Post-processing, and more. An affordable solution to high-quality image management.

2.- G’MIC

On the Internet, it is fashionable to apply filters to images, sometimes unnecessarily. But if you want to apply many professional filters, then G’MIC is for you.

Thanks to this add-on for GIMP, you will have at your disposal many different filters to apply to 2D images. However, the plugin does not limit itself to this, but it is also possible to reduce the noise of the images and improve the processing of them.

So you can see some of the filters and how good they look.

Finally, this complement that also works independently, has an extensive and very well done documentation.

3.- Hugin

If your images are related to a scenario, then Hugin is everything you were hoping for.

From the project website, we are told the following “Hugin is an easy to use cross-platform panoramic imaging toolchain based on Panorama Tools.

With Hugin, you can assemble a mosaic of photographs into a complete immersive panorama, stitch any series of overlapping pictures and much more.

Hugin’s work is spectacular and to see it, you’d better go to Flick.

Conclusion

GIMP is too good an application to even be free. It is a fundamental part of the work of many people in the world who have found in it an alternative to Photoshop. However, it can always be improved and thanks to these three plugins it can be even more efficient.
