G’MIC released with new features

G’MIC is an open and full-featured framework for image processing, providing several different user interfaces to convert, manipulate, filter, visualize generic image datasets, from 1d scalar signals to 3d+t sequences of multi-spectral volumetric images. This release comes with a number of bug fixes and changes / improvement since the last release 1.6.0


G’MIC new features:

  • New web page dedicated to G’MIC film emulation filters
  • Added new recognized typedefs for describing parameters of a GIMP filter : ‘argument = const(value)’, which sets one (invisible) parameter with a constant value, and ‘argument = button()’, which create a button on the interface (boolean value).
  • GIMP filters can now return a status containing a list of values (each encapsulated in parentheses) which is used as a modifier of the current filter parameters values. It adds a possible feedback between the filter interface and the command.
  • The GIMP plug-in is now compiled by default with the ability of opening display windows. Filter can now use G’MIC display windows and events to propose better interactions with the user.
  • New command ‘-x_segment’ and associated GIMP filter Contours / Extract foreground that propose an interactive interface to segment foreground objects from background in an opaque RGB image. It uses a simple watershed technique as a segmentation algorithm.
  • New type of global variables has been introduced : variables starting with two underscores are intra-thread global variables (can be read and modified in parallel), while single-underscored global variables stay local to a thread.
