Flat GIMP icon Theme by android272 Flat GIMP icon Theme by android272
The Flat GIMP icon Theme was created to modernize GIMP and keep people focused on their art.  I have heard it all over the web that GIMP is ugly and I wanted to change that. 

I wanted to provide people with options that make them comfortable so they can stop looking at the theme and UI.  I personally like Darker themes but others Like lite themes, many people asked for a smaller theme just like GIMP comes with so I made those to.

I think that GIMP is an amazing program that many people don't even give a change because it does not look a pretty as Photoshop.

Just extract the .zip and place it under home/.gimp-2.8/themes (supposing that you use GIMP 2.8)

special thanks to :iconknozos: maker of the DPixel theme for help with theme,  :iconzzdas: maker of the minimo for small theme text, Eckhard M. Jäger maker of the ProGimp theme for colored icons, :icondoctormo: maker of PsIcons themfor getting rid of tool box lable and help with gtkrc, Mirek2's flat icon concept from LibreOffice and the GIMP dev team. all of you really helped make this theme.

Thank you
Can you tell me how did you remove toolbox label?

Yes, put this [1] code into your gtkrc and change the hex color code to what ever your themes background color is.

Never mind, I found it :P

I just ask my self why it is no the default Gimp icon theme, maybe for the 3.0....:)
Thanks a lot.

I have been talking a lot with the devs trying to salve some problems people were having with my theme and I might be working with them on a theme like this for GIMP 3.0. don't worry it will be coming.

This is simply beautiful! GIMP feels gorgeous now with the Dark Small theme on my Ubuntu Unity desktop, and I've got more screen space for the canvas too. The program had fairly nice icons by default to me, but wow, these deserve to be packaged with GIMP.

Thanks for making this theme. I primarily draw and paint with GIMP, so I'm going to enjoy using it a lot more now.
