GIMP Image Editor 2.10.32 is out with BigTIFF & JPEG XL Support

GIMP, the popular free open-source image editor, has a new point release for the 2.10 stable series.

The new 2.10.32 release introduced 8 and 16-bit CMYK(A) TIFF support on export, and import/export support for BigTIFF format. BigTIFF is an evolution of the original TIFF format allowing files bigger than 4 GB.

The JPEG XL file support is now in the stable release, though a third-party plugin is ready there for this function.

When exporting DDS, new “Flip the image vertically on export” option is available to flip image vertically.

  • Add ‘locl’ support for the Text tool.
  • Support loading transparent EPS files.
  • Metadata handling improvements.
  • XCF import code improvements.
  • New PDB procedure file-bmp-save2 for plugin developers.
  • Alpha channel for indexed TGA images.
  • Improve themes and icons with on-hover indicator.
  • The screenshot tool now has “Include mouse pointer” option on Windows.
