How to Create Seamless Textures with Gimp



In this new quick tip Gleb Alexandrov shares a hidden gem in the Gimp - how to turn your textures into seamless tiles with one click.

Gled writes:

Seamless textures, also known as “tileable” textures, is an old but very important card in a digital artist’s deck. When done right it’s a great way to get lots of detail cheaply compared to hand-painting complete textures and also in terms of computer memory. There are several methods for achieving seamlessness but with Gimp we can do this with a single click. Seriously!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Hey Gleb, :))

    I'm participating in this blender community more than 2 years and I would like to say that your tutorials are one of the best I've ever seen, they are really good, not only as performance and end result but also as quick and clear learning materials. And I mean not only for our blender community but also in general for the 3d world. (I've previous experience with Cinema4d § 3Dmax.)

    Thank you, and please keep going :)

    Actually I will appreciate to see some tutorials made by you into a nature - theme. Some grass :), trees, waterfalls something like that! :)) Take care
