GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is used to edit and manipulate images. It can load and save a variety of image formats and can be used to convert between formats.
GIMP 2.8.12 was released on 25 August, 2014, with a lot of bug fixes! This is a bugfix release in the stable 2.8 series, no new features were added.
Below is an overview of Changes from GIMP 2.8.10 to GIMP 2.8.12
- OSX: Fix migration code for old GIMP directories

- Make XCF loading more robust against broken files
- Make sure the widget direction matches the GUI language
- Remove the option to disable the warning when closing a modified image
- Fix canvas overlay widgets (like the text options) for tablets
