The Gimp is the GNU Image Manipulation Program, a sophisticated cross platform image editor. The Gimp is Free Software.

The Panorama Tools Plugins are available for the Gimp as the Panorama Gimp plug-in.

The Gimp is available for Windows, OS X and Unix. For Photoshop users, there is an experimental GIMPshop with a similar menu layout to Photoshop.

Panoramic photography related gimp plugins

  • pandora plugin allows you to spread a series of photographs into a multi-layer image for easy editing.
  • Save Layers in seperate files. Little Helper for Multilayer TIFF. If you are using multilayer tiff with GIMP for optimizing blending with enblend, you might need this script for saving every layer to a seperate file. Download
  • UFRaw is a plugin for the gimp based on dcraw for reading RAW files from digital cameras.
  • resynthesizer is a very useful plugin that can be used for filling-in missing parts of stitched images.

Gimp drawbacks

  • The gimp doesn't currently support greater than 8 bits per channel, ie. it doesn't support high dynamic range images, though this is a target for future versions. However, there is a fork of the Gimp called Cinepaint that already supports 16 bits per channell.
