NAME
     gimp-remote - tells a running  GIMP  to  open  a  (local  or
     remote) image file.

SYNOPSIS
     gimp-remote  [-h]  [--help]  [-v]   [--version]   [--display
     display] [-e] [--existing] [-q] [--query] filename ...


DESCRIPTION
     gimp-remote is a small utility that tells a running GIMP  to
     open  one or more (local or remote) image files.  It does so
     by searching for a GIMP toolbox on the active  display.   If
     it  can  find  a  GIMP  toolbox,  a  synthetic drop event is
     created which makes GIMP think the  files  would  have  been
     dropped  onto the toolbox. More than one filename or URL can
     be specified on the commandline.


     If no GIMP window is found, gimp-remote  will  start  a  new
     GIMP instance and ask it to load the specified images. If no
     filename or URL is given, gimp-remote will start a new GIMP.
     This behaviour can be altered using the command-line options
     described below.



OPTIONS
     gimp-remote accepts the following options:

     -h, --help
             Display a list of all commandline options.

     -v, --version
             Output the version info.

     --display display
             Use the designated X display.

     -e, --existing
             If no running GIMP instance is found, don't start  a
             new one but exit.

     -q, --query
             Check if GIMP is running and exit. A status code  of
             0  indicates  that  a  GIMP  toolbox window has been
             found on this display.


EXAMPLES
     gimp-remote http://www.gimp.org/images/wilber_the_gimp.png
          Loads the image from the GIMP website  into  a  running
          GIMP or starts a new one.

     gimp-remote wilber.xcf wilma.xcf
          Loads the local files wilber.xcf and wilma.xcf  into  a
          running GIMP or starts a new one.
