multi-image pattern help
I downloaded what is supposed to be a gimp fill pattern pack but it turns out that there is only 1 pat file named 'love patterns.pat'... I open it with gimp to view them but I get an error message 'Opening <file path>\love patterns.pat failed: GIMP pattern plug-In could not be opened'

how do I use multi image pat files in GIMP???

This is not a Gimp pattern file (many programs use the same .PAT extension for patterns). A Gimp pattern file contains the string "GPAT".

Possibly, but you have to know what format (PS?) it is. For PS, you can try this.

In practice, Gimp no longer uses .PAT files, PNG files do the job nicely.

@moltres_rider
It is a fairly old plugin - 2008 - could be that it needs recompiling for your OS version.
Compiles ok in linux, Gimp opens the .pat file as indivual layers. They are small tiles 100x100.
IMHO they are not wonderful for tiling even in PS7
see http://i.imgur.com/8GSr5.jpg

FWIW I have separated the gimp layers into png images ready to go into your patterns folder
This is what they look like

and you can get them from my rapidshare account
