How can I create a texture similar to this one?
Hello, I am searching for a tutorial which can help me create a texture similar to the one attached. I am not looking for the same exact result, but want to learn how I could get similar results with gimp.

RE: How can I create a texture similar to this one?
It seems to be a very dark checker board (2x2px) (values around 30) with some variation. Typically:

- fill a layer with checkerboard pattern (if you haven't got one already, create it in a layer, Edit/Copy, and use the "clipboard" pattern
- with the Levels tools restrict the whole range (0-255) to something small (120-136) by dragging the handle of the output levels towards the center.
- add a layer
- Filters/Render/Clouds/Solid noise
- with Level tools shrink the range to something even smaller (124-132)
- put that layer in "grain merge" mode
- add a new layer, fill with dark gray (90-95)
- put that layer in subtract mode (120 from previous layer minus 90 = 30 for final layer)
