It has been six years since the release of GIMP 2.8. The Adobe Photoshop's open source image editing software was finally updated on Friday.The version of GIMP 2.10 is officially released.Many functions including multithreading, high bit depth (high-bit-depth) and hardware accelerated pixel processing are introduced.
The hardware acceleration function is mainly because GIMP transplants the image processing engine in the GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) and carries all the filter effects by default in the GIMP 2.10. Another interesting adjustment is that color manager has become one of the core functions of GIMP. In addition, most of the preview areas and plug-ins now have color management. Many tools in GIMP 2.10 have also been improved, including Handle transform, Warp transform and Unified transform tools.
