GIMP Plugin: Texturize

Published › December 2, 2011 0 Comments


Imagine that you have an image with a small sample of a texture, like a few strawberries (out of a plate full of them), a few square inches of grass (from a large grassy field), or a few dozens of your cat’s hairs (your cat really has more than that). If you want to generate a larger texture with this small image, you could just copy-paste it, and put the copies (or “patches”) one next to another, but that wouldn’t produce a very good result, since the right (or top) part of the image usually doesn’t correspond to its left (or bottom) part, when two copies of the image are assembled.

A few images are indeed designed to be copy-pasted one next to another and still look natural, but the result is usually periodic and very monotonous (it looks like wallpaper — the one on your walls, not the one on your computer desktop!).

The Texturize plugin allows you to get all the strawberries, the whole grass field, or your whole cat (well, it doesn’t guess you cat’s shape, but you can at least get a lot of his hairs!). Moreover, Texturize lets you actually create tileable textures (which is great for game design).
