This is the current supported version of vips. Check the documentation page.
VIPS comes as part of many popular versions of Unix. If you're running Debian, Ubuntu, FreeBSD, Gentoo, Arch Linux or RedHat check your package manager and click install. The links page has details on how to find the packages if you have trouble.
You may find that the version packaged for your system is not the latest one. If you need a more recent version, you will have to build yourself from source. Check the notes below.
There's a windows installer, called typically
nip2-7.x.x-setup.exe in the supported download area.
nip2-7.x.x.zip if you prefer to unpack and install yourself.
nip2 has some problems with UTF-8 and filename encoding conversions at the moment. If you have problems loading files, try checking for accented characters in filenames.
Development on Windows
win32 directory has a variety of zips. A good starting point is
vips-dev-7.x.x.zip, this has a complete set of headers and DLLs for vips and all of the libraries it needs.
These binaries use
msvcrt.dll, so you need to build your applications against this runtime as well, unless you are an expert. It'll 'just work' if you use mingw, if you want to use the MS compiler, This helpful blog post has some tips to get linking working.
There are other zips you can use to build a complete vips system from source, check the Build on windows page.
Mac OS X
There's a .dmg, called typically
nip2-7.x.x.app.dmg in the supported download area. There's a problem with rendering text into images, but otherwise it seems OK.
See Build on OS X for hints on building yourself or getting a library made.
Go to the supported download page and grab the latest nip2-7.x.x.tar.gz and vips-7.x.x.tar.gz. See the READMEs in the packages for build and install notes, but generally the usual
./configure ; make ; sudo make install will work, provided you have all the development packages they need installed.
For the latest sources, see Development.
Go to the supported download page and grab vips-examples-7.x.tar.gz for a collection of simple examples and a sample plugin. There are some test images too, hence the large download.
The Hello World page has some very simple programs you can use to test your build environment.
