Glimpse is a downstream fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

Glimpse is a downstream fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program. You can find out more information on our FAQs page:

The initial aim is to provide a downstream fork of the GNU Image Manipulation Program that has a less problematic name so there are no potential barriers to using the software in businesses and educational institutions.

This is a long-standing problem that has drawn user concern for over a decade, but whenever the issue is raised it tends to be dismissed. We do not believe the upstream project's explanation or workaround is enough to address the problem.

In future versions we intend to address other long-standing complaints, particularly around the graphical user interface.
