RE: [Gimp-user] A nice toy

 1. Let's say I have this image I need to rotate precisely by 2.5
 degrees CCW. How I am supposed to do this simple task in Gimp?

Use the transform tool and set its options to rotation, traditional.
Click on the image to initiate a transfrom then type -2.5 into the Angle
field of the Rotation Information dialog before clicking Rotate.

  2. I still didn't figure out how to quickly create my own patterns
  (this is a simple procedure in Photoshop).

Save any image you wish to use into your patterns folder with the
extension .pat.  Open the pattern chooser and click Refresh to load the
pattern you have just saved.

 3. A Distort tool seems to be missing in Gimp. Correct me if I am
 wrong.  Running Gimp 1.2.3 on a Mandrake Linux box.

Take a look at the Filters|Distorts menu, perhaps it contains what you
are looking for.

The answer is simple. Use the Transform Tool from the toolbox.

It is a simple procedure in GIMP as well.

Patterns are saved with the .pat extension. To make the pattern
available from within gimp-1.2 you should save it to one of the pattern
directories (e.g. ~/.gimp-1.2/patterns/ on GNU/Linux)

  3. A Distort tool seems to be missing in Gimp. Correct me if I am wrong.

Did you check the Image/Filters/Distorts/ menu? Not exactly a tool,
but I am not sure what it is exactly you are looking for here...

I think you might be looking for the Interactive Warp tool.

Filters  Distorts  IWarp

The interface is not what you are used to but you'll find it quite capable
once you learn how it works.

 Thank you all. Btw I loved the Iwarp distort thing. Also Transform - Perspective is 
indeed very similar to the Free Transform Photoshop tool.
 Migrating from Photoshop to Gimp will be less painfull than I thought :-)
