This GIMP (GNU) tutorial demonstrates how to create a Colourful Ethereal Background Pattern.

You can quickly Undo a step at any time by pressing Ctrl then Z. Alternatively, click a previous Undo History snapshot - Windows then Dockable Dialogues then click Undo History. In addition, to Zoom in (or Zoom out) of your image; from the top menu choose View then select a Zoom Tool from
the subsequent drop-down list.

Launch GIMP & Organise Its Workspace & Palettes

Create a New Image, and set the following settings, then click OK. (Ctrl then N).

Now, from the top menu, choose Filters then choose Render then choose Clouds, and then choose Plasma. Then, setting the following attributes, click OK to the subsequent Plasma dialogue box.

From the top menu, choose Filters then choose Render then choose Nature and then choose Flame. And from the subsequent Flame dialogue box, click the Edit tab. Then from the subsequent Edit Flame dialogue box, left-click to activate a design you like the look of, as illustrated below.

Unless you have previously “saved” a design, (as illustrated below), it’s difficult to replicate the exact pattern twice, using this filter.

It’s therefore important to be creative, and discover the endless design possibilities yourself.

After you have Edited the flame, and clicked OK in the Edit Flame dialogue box: from the subsequent Flame dialogue box, enter the following settings, or experiment - and then click OK.
