Does Gimp still use .pat files for patterns?

I've noticed that most of the patterns I have downloaded for Gimp lately are just .png's. That makes it nice but does Gimp still use .pat files for patterns as well or did they get rid of that? It seems like Adobe Photoshop still uses .pat files.

Does Gimp have scripting or 'macro' abilities

I use Photoshop to do repeated tasks over and over on a group of images. Can Gimp do anything like that where you know a process you want to perform over and over? For example:

1) Resize image
2) Add a layer
3) Put another image in that layer
4) Save result as a new image somewhere

Remember Photoshop .pat pattern files are different then Gimp .pat pattern files!

abrMate Tutorial: Export a Brush to a .png Image

Exporting Adobe Photoshop brushes to .png's in abrMate is very easy. First, you must have one or more brush sets open on your PC. Single-click the thumbnail of any brush to select it. You can now click the 'Export Selected Brush to .png' button to begin the exporting process:

Select a Brush and Click 'Export Selected Brush to .png

abrMate 1.0 Released!

Well I want to apologize for not releasing as many textures, brushes, and patterns lately. It's because I finally decided to write a freeware Windows application for viewing, organizing, and exporting brushes to .png's. Go ahead and check it out if you're interested and remember this is version 1.0! Texturemate users can submit feature requests and bug fixes from their Profile Page.

abrMate Introduction

abrMate is a freeware Windows application I wrote that has the ability to open Adobe Photoshop .abr brush preset files for previewing, organizing, or exporting brushes to .png's. I began writing abrMate because there didn't seem to be a full-featured free Windows application out there for opening and organizing brush files.

Tutorial: How to Adjust Color Curves in Gimp

One tool I have been finding very useful in Gimp lately is the Color Curves adjustment dialog so I figured I would make a quick tutorial or guide on it. I have been finding that it allows you to make nice smooth appearing adjustments to contrast in the image or layer you are working on. Often times I want to increase contrast just a little bit and this tool works very well. Here's an example of a crumpled paper image with the contrast increased for fun:

Apply Halftone Effects in Gimp

Sometimes halftone effects are useful in graphic design applications. Halftone is essentially reproduction of an image where changes in tone are produced by changes in dot size and/or spacing. There are various halftone methods that come from the printing world such as staying in greyscale or using CMYK color models. Applying halftone effects to an image is fairly straight forward in Adobe Photoshop using the Apply Halftone Method, but not so straight forward in Gimp.
