Adds context menu items to send image links and image files directly to the GIMP photo editor
Open in GIMP photo editor extension adds a new item to your right-click context menu to open image links in GIMP photo editor. Using this extension you can directly send images to GIMP without the need to manually save them first. If the image has a valid URL, then the image's link will be sent directly to GIMP. If the image is in DATA URL format, then the image is stored in your temp directory and then GIMP is called to open this temp image (you can alter this behavior on the options page).
Note that for this extension to work you need to have GIMP photo editor installed; https://www.gimp.org/downloads/
You can visit the options page to define GIMP location if the extension cannot find it automatically.
For this extension to open images in GIMP photo editor, you will need to install a minimal native client. The instruction to install the native client is displayed once a link opening is requested. There are two short video tutorials in the screenshot section for both Windows and Linux or Mac operation systems if you want to see the installation steps of the native client.
