Hi guys, I'm getting my mac laptop ready to use Gimp as I will be going on a trip home in a few weeks. I haven't figured out how to add patterns or gradients to gimp on a mac. I can't seem to find the folders. My mac runs OS X Lion if that helps in trying to figure out where the folders are. If anyone happens to know how to do this, I would be very appreciate of the advice.

I did a quick forum search but didn't find any info on this topic so I apologize if this is a repeat.
