Welcome to the ingimp home page! ingimp is a research project whose goal is to develop and test new tools to support open source usability.
ingimp is a version of the GNU Image Manipulation Program that has been instrumented to collect real-time usability data. It is not a plug-in but a complete, standalone version of the GIMP. All usability data is automatically transmitted to this website for anyone to download and analyze.
To aid with data analysis and discussion, we have developed StatsJam, a modified wiki that allows anyone to view, edit, and create live data analyses of the data within a wiki.
Jump straight to the downloads to grab a copy of ingimp for Windows or UNIX.
Not only do we provide numerical summarizations of overall ingimp usage, we also provide personalized mirrors of your own personal, usage. Each ingimp user has an online persona that grows to reflect how they use ingimp. For example, if you are an artist who makes heavy use of the pencil tool, your persona will be seen clutching a pencil. Just use ingimp as you would the normal version of the GIMP and use the "Website + Stats" button at start-up to view your own persona along with a summary of your own usage of ingimp.
