Scanline Patterns & Loading Patterns

This is a tutorial on how to make a scanline pattern and how to load patterns into Gimp. First off - create a new canvas (CTRL+N or File - "New...") and make the size 3x3. Create a new layer (Shift+ctrl+n or Layer - "New Layer") and delete the layer "Background". This should make your background transparent. Now go to your paintbrush and select the brush "Circle (01)" which is 1 pixel in size, also make sure your foreground color is Black. You might need to zoom in on your canvas to assure that you do this correctly - At the top corner of your canvas (left or right, whichever way you want the lines to go) make a dot with your brush. Then do it again in the center and the bottom corner of your canvas. Now you have a scanline. Remember to save it as a ".pat" and in a folder that you'll keep your patterns. To load it into Gimp go to "Edit" then to "Preferences". Look near the bottom of the left side and find "Folders" and then click "Patterns". You'll see a folder icon and a text box. Click the icon and click on the folder that your patterns are located in. Then push the icon that looks like a sheet of paper with a corner folded. Make sure to put the checkmark beside it! Then you'll hit OK and you'll need to restart Gimp before your new pattern shows up.
