View Full Version : GIMP Question : Pattern folders?

12-01-2011, 07:51 AM
I'm still lurking, but getting very inspired.
Right now I'm trying to learn the basics about GIMP.

Q: Is there a way to group together patterns?

I've a lot of patterns I want to import, but I want some structure instead of having hundreds of them in one window, so I can easily go through just a subset. Kind of like a palette with only wood patterns or leaf patters for example.

Thanks for any help! /Thomas

Look fro GURM on the gimp registry... In 2.8, there will be a way to "tag" resources, but honestly, I like GURM's approach better even if it is slow with lot's of resources).

Hi Thomas!

You post was caught in moderation, so I have approved it, and will answer your question...

The next version of gimp (and the development 2.7.x snapshots) support resource tagging, so you can search for resources like patterns based on the tags you give them.

If you have python installed (you didn't mention the OS), I'd suggest the GURM plugin (http://registry.gimp.org/node/13473) which lets you manage resources as folders, and dynamically activate/deactivate them. Unfortunately it doesn't support sub-folders at this time.

EDIT: Ninja'd
