"The GIMP comes with a wide variety of patterns that can be used on your compositions. A pattern can be applied as a fill into a selection or to an entire layer, or it can be painted onto a specific area. Click the pattern selection at the lower right of the toolbox and you'll see thumbnails of the available patterns. As I said, there's quite a variety, but you're not restricted to just those. You can easily add new patterns to the collection by saving a graphic as a PAT and placing it in the patterns directory. Begin by making sure you have write permission to that directory."
