Open in GIMP photo editor extension adds a new item to your right-click context menu to open image links in GIMP photo editor. Using this extension you can directly send images to GIMP without the need to manually save them first. If the image has a valid URL, then the image's link will be sent directly to GIMP. If the image is in DATA URL format, then the image is stored in your temp directory and then GIMP is called to open this temp image (you can alter this behavior on the options page).

Note that for this extension to work you need to have GIMP photo editor installed; https://www.gimp.org/downloads/

You can visit the options page to define GIMP location if the extension cannot find it automatically.

--- Note
For this extension to open images in GIMP photo editor, you will need to install a minimal native client. The instruction to install the native client is displayed once a link opening is requested. There are two short video tutorials in the screenshot section for both Windows and Linux or Mac operation systems if you want to see the installation steps of the native client.

Change Log:
1. Adds a new option to download images and send local paths to GIMP

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
