A Photoshop-compatible filter interface for G'MIC

Post by null54 »

G'MIC is an open-source C++ image processing framework with hundreds of effects.

I wrote an 8bf filter that interfaces with G'MIC-Qt, it allows programs that supports Photoshop-compatible filters to use the G'MIC effects from within the same UI as GIMP, Krita, digiKam and other software that has support for G'MIC-Qt.

When installing the plugin both the 8bf file and the gmic folder must be placed in the host's plug-in folder.
The filter has been tested in Photoshop 2020 (64-bit), PaintShop Pro 2021 (64-bit) and XnView.

Depending in the G'MIC effects that are used the 8bf filter may prompt the user so save the modified image(s) after the G'MIC-Qt UI has been closed.
This will be done if the G'MIC effect resizes the image or produces multiple output images.
