Easiest way to make this?
I've attached someone else's logo.
I'd like to recreate this in gimp.
It appears to be two striped traingles.
I'd just like to create one striped triangle.
Can you tell me the easiest way to do this?
Thanks

RE: Easiest way to make this?
  • First, create an upside-down equilateral triangle selection:
    • Position a horizontal guide where the base should be
    • Position three equallly spaced vertical guides.
    • Start freehand selection tool
    • Click on intersection of base guide with leftmost vertical
    • Click on intersection of base guide with rightmost vertical
    • Move your mouse towards summit
    • Depress the Control key for constrained angles: the line between the pointer and your previous point is now constrained to a 60° angle. Zoom in for accuracy (Ctrl-mousewheel) and click on the middle vertical guide
    • Strike [enter] to close the selection
  • add layer
  • Filter/Render/Pattern/Grid to create horizontal stripes inside the selection
  • remove selection and rotate layer by 60°

   

As you can see the borders are slightly fuzzy due to the rotation, and it's not very easy to obtain a full triangle at the tip. This kind of logo is more appropriately done with vectors graphics. I'll try to come up with a reasonable solution using Paths, but you can also investigate using Inkscape for this.
