Generating patterns/textures on image?
Is there a way to select a portion of an image, and create patterns/textures that fill the selection?

If yes, is there the option of using my own images as the pattern/texture to be used? And is there the option to fill the selection either randomly or pattern-like? 'Noise' is not what I'm looking for. Thanks.

You sort of answered the question yourself. Paint operations only apply to the selection, and the bucket-fill tool can use a pattern.

The pattern can be:
  • any of the standard patterns
  • any image (preferably .pat or .png) that you add in one of the directories Gimp look up for patterns (See Edit/Preferences ->Folders/Patterns to locate them)
  • The content of the clipboard (the first pattern in the list is actually the current clipboard contents)

"Random" means "noise". But you can fill several layers with different patterns, and use noise in the selection (RGB, noise, followed by threshold) to delete them in random areas and obtain a final result made of random bits of each pattern.
