GIMP Tubes

What are GIMP Tubes?

Gimp Tubes are called animated image or hose pipes. They are similar to Paint Shop Pro's "picture tubes" and work in the same fashion.  They fall under the Brushes dialog box in GIMP's UI (see image below). 

GIMP Tubes can be created very easily, by taking cutouts of various images, and placing them on an alpha transparent layer, where the placement cells are evenly divisible. A 400 px by 400 px layer, for example, could be divided into four 200 px by 200 px cells, and so on. GIMP Tubes have to have the *.gih extension.

In the collection below, I have converted several PSP picture tubes for use with GIMP. I will post a tutorial on how to quickly create or convert your own tubes. Be watching for it in the near future. It's now easier than ever to accomplish with the use of a special script created by Rob A.
You might want to change the description and rank setting to suit yourself, although the spacing of brushes can be set manually in the brushes dialog. (See screenshot below for manual spacing – click to enlarge) The description determines (alphabetical order) where your brushes show in the dialog list.  To make any changes to the brush, simple open the brush as an image, go to File – Save As, accept to replace, then on the menu prompt, change the description name. If you don't like the random setting for rank, change it to Incremental, then save the brush. Enjoy the collection!
