GIMP - Patterns - [ID:776] (3/11)

in series: GIMP tutorial by example.

video tutorial by gasto, added 07/08

Series ID: 282 Video ID: 776

We create a patterned image by using various contiguous tiles. These creates a seamless background, useful for 'infinite' scrolling backgrounds in videogames, or webpage backgrounds, wich simplifies the works required to create complex backgrounds. Just imagine how much time it would take for a 2D artist to create a detailed 800 times 600 image. Now imagine how much would it take to make a 256 times 256 image... much less.

Thank-you all of the videos I've seen have been the best explanations of GIMP I've found. You are clear and easy to follow. The menus in spanish are a little confusing, but I finally found the forum comment about the changes in 2.6 to the menu (that helped a LOT!!). Thank-you.

good tutorial helped a lot thank you


Hello Karen,

Please view the GIMP 2.6.1 changes. That tutorial should answer your question.

Long answer short: The Toolbox menu, has disappeared in GIMP 2.6.0 onward , I am assuming that is the version you have, there is no other way the pattern creation is not available at the menu.

So in GIMP 2.6.0 or later, go to File->Create->Pattern->Land ; to follow the example.

I do not have some of the features you used in the tutorial. There is no Extras in my tool menu. I could not find the pattern dialogue.

Thanks,

karen

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for gasto
