I was looking at the patterns that come with the GIMP.
They might have been nice for 320x240 web images that everyone edited
a few years ago.
But in a world of 7 MP cameras, all patterns that come with the GIMP
are nearly useless.
there are a few pending features for patterns on the program itself -
like categorization, possibly scaling, and so on.
That aside, these patterns are in urgent need for an update. Even if
not on the patterns that come along with the GIMP itself, nice
pattern collections would be nice - perhaps some that could be
packaged in a "gimp-data-extras" module, or something like that.
Even updates of the existing patterns so that they do no look a silly
square repetition when covering a surface more than 400px wide would
be a nice thing.
So - developers, what do you think might be the best approach? To
update the patterns that come with the program thenselves or make
additional collections available?
And everybody - let's start building some nice patterns - one way or
the other we have to collect then all an make then available for all
the GIMP users.
