Find and Replace graphic/texture within image
Is there a plugin of some sort that would be able to find your selection within an image and replace it with another graphic? For instance, I have this picture of a 2D "Minecraft" (A voxel-based game). There are different blocks that have textures on them. I am trying to replace all the wood textures with a new wood texture. The same with grass and stone.

So I would change this:
[Image: Xenocontendi.png?cf6bcc]

To this (Or another texture opack);
[Image: jehkobasfantasy.png?cf6bcc]

Is it possible to automate this process or do I have to paste the new texture over every spot I see the old texture?

Thanks in advance Smile.

RE: Find and Replace graphic/texture within image
I don't know of any way to locate a given texture like this. However, it would be more efficient to make a selection on areas filled with the texture you want to replace, set the pattern to the replacement texture(*), and bucket-fill the selection with the pattern.

(*) no need to use explicit patterns, copy the new pattern to the clipboard (from some image), and use the "Clipboard" pattern (first in the list)
