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???

is there any way to convert it???

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
