There is  a C interface, and there is a Python interface which is quite


I see the following possibilities:
1. There is a Java wrapper for GIMP, see http://jgimp.sourceforge.net/, 
but this project hasn't been active for a long time.
2. A still existing way is to use the Java Native Interface (JNI), which 
lets you call C/C++ functions from Java and vice versa.
3. GIMP has a built-in script-fu server which interpretes GIMPs plugin 
language, a Scheme dialect. You could connect to it over a socket from 
an arbitrary language and control GIMP remotely, although it's a bit 
oversized if you could call GIMPs functionality directly from within 
your program.
4. IMHO you should be able to access C from C++ by including the C 
header files, but I haven't tried this for GIMP yet.
5. If you're only interested in accessing GIMPs graphics core, then you 
could use a wrapper around the GEGL library. A Java language binding has 
yet to be developed.

Best regards,


Great!  I look into those. Thanks.
