I found these as jpeg images already seemless so I just resized each one in increments of 128 pixels and saved each one in several sizes as a .pat file. This way you have different sizes and colors to choose from when you do a pattern fill.

Enjoy yourself O. ;)

Somewhat OT, but I made a script a while back to let you scale an pattern to avoid having multiple copies. I just uploaded the latest version to the GPR:

http://registry.gimp.org/node/13707

Quote:
A script to take the current pattern, scale it and leave a copy in the clipboard. Gimp 2.6 lets you use the image in the clipboard as a fill pattern, so you can just use it from there

Scale is from 20% to 500% It used Lanczos scaling working a a tiled copy of the image, so if the source pattern is tileable the scaled one will be as well.

You can access the script by right clicking on a pattern and selecting "Scale Pattern..."

I have added an option to call either sharpen or unsharp mask interactively so the sharpness can be adjusted visually before the pattern is placed in the clipboard.

Updated to v1.2 - Now handles patterns rescaled larger than 512x512. If larger than 512x512 it will save the scaled pattern to a file, refresh patterns, and set the active pattern to be the saved file. (It uses the same pattern file name every time, so calling the script repeatedly wil not build up a large number of scaled pattern files.)

Wow! Scales and a script to scale patterns all in one thread. :yes

Thanks tstandiford and RobA!

Just read where that script scales the pattern and copies the scaled one to the clipboard. All ready to use. Way cool.
