GIMP 2.8 pattern issue Help Please
Before I used 2.8 I was able to save patterns from deviantart.com into the patterns folder. Now with 2.8 Gimp will not let me save any patterns. Please Help!Huh

RE: GIMP 2.8 pattern issue Help Please
This is what happens when I try to add patterns...
Failed to load data:
Fatal parse error in pattern file 'C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\patterns\MyPatterns\Dark Color Glitter Patterns.pat': Unknown pattern format version 65536.

There at least two pattern folders, one that contains the standard patterns (in the Gimp installation tree, somewhere in "C:\Program files", usually), and one in your Gimp profile where you can/should save your additional patterns (that will therefore survive a Gimp reinstallation, and be backed up with the rest of your data if you do backups). Folders in the installation tree should not be modified except by Gimp or plugin installers, and are protected against tinkering by non-privileged users in recent Windows versions (and in Linux/OSX).

See the "folders" tab in "Edit/Preferences" for the available folders (you can add your own...). This also applies to other data: gradients, fonts, scripts, brushes, palettes...
