BIMP. Batch Image Manipulation Plugin for GIMP.

With BIMP you can apply a set of GIMP manipulations on groups of images. Documentation @

Compiling and installing under Linux/Unix

You must install libgimp2.0-dev and libpcre3-dev packages in order to have the full set of libraries and dependences to compile BIMP. Then:

make && make install


make && sudo make install-admin

to make and install for every user in the system (needs root privileges).

  1. Make sure that the "bimp-locale" folder is copied in the plug-in directory too! If not, you can do it manually by copying it from ./bin/win32.
  2. Don't mind the warnings...

Installing under Windows

BIMP plugin for Windows is already compiled and it's saved in bin/win32 directory. Just copy bimp.exe, pcre3.dll and bimp-locale into the default GIMP-plugins folder: <Programs-dir>\<GIMP-folder>\lib\gimp\<version>\plug-ins or <User-dir>\.gimp<version>\plug-ins

For Mac OSX users

There's no need to install or compile BIMP on Mac, because the default native build of GIMP for Mac OSX 10.8 made by Simone from already includes BIMP! (however, it's not guaranteed to be the very latest version)
