Glimpse is a free open source photo and image editor, a libre alternative to Adobe Photoshop. You can follow the project at:

➡️ @glimpse

It's available for Linux and Windows from the Glimpse website at glimpse-editor.github.io

Glimpse is forked from the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), and is run by members of the Fediverse community.

@FediFollows @glimpse sounds great. I already use GIMP but will give this a spin, thanks!

@FediFollows would have been better to actually recommend the project that does the work... instead of just a random fork that was annoyed by the name...

@reto

I think Glimpse do actually donate work and funds upstream as well?

By the way, I can only recommend follows, I don't think GIMP is on the Fediverse?

@FediFollows @reto Correct, we have donated $500 USD so far. We also provide direct donation links for GNU I.M.P as often as we provide our own so our users are clear that they have a choice.

We recently did an interview with Davies Media Design that clears up some misconceptions: daviesmediadesign.com/a-qa-wit

@reto @FediFollows changing the name was necessary work that the original project declined to do; all the more reason to support @glimpse

@relsqui @reto @FediFollows @glimpse I second that fully! No need to be a jerk by keeping a hurtful name.
