GIMP 2.10.34 introduces support for importing JPG XL and these other new features

Created with GIMP

It had been available on Flathub for days, but its launch It has not been made official until a few hours ago, already on February 28 in Spain. Waiting for GIMP 3.0, which will include news such as uploading to GTK3, and happening to 2.10.32, they keep delivering us smaller updates, like the latest GIMP 2.10.34. There are few news that are going to change our lives, unless our preferred format to work with is JPG XL, the same one that Google seems not to want at all in its Chrome.

Also in the formats section, GIMP 2.10.34 adds improvements in TIFF, PSD, PDF and RAW files. The GNU Image Manipulation Program often delegates RAW photo editing to other programs, but it has still improved its support for “raw” images. What you have below is a summary of the most outstanding news from GIMP 2.10.34.

GIMP 2.10.34 Highlights

  • Improvements in TIFF, PSD, JPG XL, PDF and RAW data formats. As for the latter, it is a small backport that they have made of the beta version of GIMP (2.99.12), and it will be possible to export the RAW data with the precision used by the image backend. In other words, RAW images can be exported with a high bit rate depth.
  • Improvements to the layer template chooser.
  • Improved color picker support on Windows, and on Linux when using X11.
  • Now remember the model and color scale preferences.
  • Improvements in the version for macOS.
  • Plug-ins API improvements.
  • Updated versions of babl and GEGL.

As we mentioned above, GIMP 2.10.34 has been available on Flathub for days, but the release announcement has been published today. For those of us who have installed the version from the official repositories of our Linux distribution, the new packages should arrive in the next few days.
