Photo Rotating the brush along the path
Is there a way to have a brush rotate to follow the path (in other words, be always aligned to the tangent to the path)? For instance, if my brush is three stripes and the path is a circle, it would generate 3 concentric circles?

RE: Rotating the brush along the path
The problem with Google is that you have to know the proper words... maybe there is a very technical term for this but unit I know I'm quite helpless. I did search onr "Gimp brush rotate path" and variations before asking here :-)

RE: Rotating the brush along the path
I would do this -

make one circle, the size of the biggest circle.

then select the circle, and fill it with a colour

then shrink it ( select - shrink )

then fill it with another colour

then repeat step 2 &3 again until you have enough circles,

in the layers dialog box, right click and choose "alpha to selection"

now choose the brush you want, and colour it in how you want

EASY!

as a thanks, can you join my forum ( link in sig ) and post? i offer more help there if you post in the off topic section!

I used stripes and a circle as an example. But I want an arbitrary shape and an arbitrary pattern (a line of pixels with gradients). The method you suggest (I used it, even on arbitrary shapes sing selection growth) becomes labor intensive very quickly.
