I'm not sure what the "corner effect" you referred to is, but the seamless
option seems to work fine.  Although when I experimented with a textual image,
it scattered the text all over the image with different opacities - weird.

Your second option seems too complex for a newbie like me, and I'm not very
clear on what the difference between evening and tiling is.  But anyway,
thanks for pointing me to the seamless option!

>You could do Filters>Map>Make seamless on your plasma, tho this tends to
create a "corner effect".  Another possibility would be to use the layer
offset (Layer>Transform>Offset and click the button that says X2/Y2)), then
carefully add some new plasma with a custom feathered selection over the
resulting "cross tile" in the center, then doing the layer offset again to
"put everything back" where it was.
>There is also something I came across long ago, can't remember where, about
creating a "high pass" filter effect that tended to "even out" the relative
exposure of tiled textures, this wasn't about making them tile, but mitigating
the obviousness of the fact that they were tiled, makeing them appear smoother
and more uniform.
