GIMP-ML: Python Plugins for using Computer Vision Models in GIMP

27 Apr 2020  ·  Kritik Soman ·

This paper introduces GIMP-ML v1.1, a set of Python plugins for the widely popular GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP). It enables the use of recent advances in computer vision to the conventional image editing pipeline. Applications from deep learning such as monocular depth estimation, semantic segmentation, mask generative adversarial networks, image super-resolution, de-noising, de-hazing, matting, enlightening and coloring have been incorporated with GIMP through Python-based plugins. Additionally, operations on images such as k-means based color clustering have also been added. GIMP-ML relies on standard Python packages such as numpy, pytorch, open-cv, scipy. Apart from these, several image manipulation techniques using these plugins have been compiled and demonstrated in the YouTube channel ( with the objective of demonstrating the use-cases for machine learning based image modification. In addition, GIMP-ML also aims to bring the benefits of using deep learning networks used for computer vision tasks to routine image processing workflows. The code and installation procedure for configuring these plugins is available at
