Flat GIMP icon Theme v 1.0.0 by android272 Flat GIMP icon Theme v 1.0.0 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.

NOTES:  I am moving to major.minor.patch versioning of Flate GIMP icon Theme. Current version is now 1.0.0. So now you can check back and see if I have made an update. To find out what version you have the zip file will have the version, you can also find this in the read me that comes with the Theme.

I added icons for GIMP 2.10 but commented them out in the imagerc. so if you are using GIMP 2.10 you can uncomment out the unified transform tool, warp tool, align horizontal fill(hfill in doc) and vertical fill(vfill in doc).

I have also been updating some icons here and there. The crop tool, free select tool and others have all been updated. So check back often I may release a silent update.

It is ok I like questions, but I am sorry for I don't know what your are trying to ask me. you have made your own icons but you are having trouble getting it to work for you?

I want to use your icons to create a theme for the program Gimp 2.8, I wonder what kind of license they have and if I can use them. Sorry,

I use google translator

I want to do something like this.

Oh ok cool I use google translate a bunch when talking to people accost the pond. Yes you may use my icons and even code. the icons are licensed under the creative commons, you may use my theme change it as you like and redistribute it and your changes as long as you give others the same rights and you attribute me.  The code is licensed under the GPL which is the same you may use it change it and redistribute it as you like as long as you give others the same rights.  if you private message me your email I can send you my working SVG files, this way you can edit the originals. I have wrote some scripts as well to automatically convert the SVG files into PNG as Windows and maybe Mac do not like SVG files in GIMP.

Ok thank you very much, do not need the zvgz file because gimp not read entirely and work with gimp, with the PNG are more than enough, when you finish the topic, you will the new link for you to download. You may not use gimp though very good program.

Your welcome.  Sorry but I did not understand "when you finish the topic, you will the new link for you to download. You may not use gimp though very good program."

in fact, releases with gimp.

Light theme not working - shows default GIMP icons. Also Windows-version (with classic theme) having several issues, seems it uses default Windows-buttons on some areas. Not big deal as using dark theme, mostly on Linux. Just thougt to mention. I'll note if I find easy fixes for those.

Otherwise, fantastic theme. Now GIMP looks professional piece of software. Something similar for Inkscape, and the question is Adobe-what?;)

Thank you for letting me know about this. I just updated the theme so it should work now.  I mainly use the dark theme as well so when the others get messed up I don't find it as fast. I wish Inkscape had as good as a theming system as GIMP does or I would also make some for it as well. currently with inkscape you can only change the icons, the window color is based on your systems theme.
