Checkmark brushes


Checkmark Brushes - 1.0
Initial release

To install:
Stick them in the GIMP brushes folder and either
"refresh brushes" or restart the GIMP.
I put them in the system-wide folder,
on my Slackware machine this folder is located at:

You should also have a local brushes folder at:

On Windows this should be:

Checkmark brushes are my fourth brush
collection for use in the GIMP.

I love 'em !

Just another item I like to have around,
because if I need a little something, I
don't want to make a small idea for an image
enhancement into a major side project --
which making or finding a good-looking
checkmark can be.

I realize most folks use brushes for more artistic
purposes than as a &quot;rubber stamp&quot;, but
let's face it, if we want to get things done in a
timely fashion, it behooves us to have simple tools
and objects at our disposal.

Since checkmarks will vary only so much, I decided
to go ahead and make some of these in color. (Kind
of makes a separate package of them worthwhile.
(Although most folks would find it easy enough to
change the HUE/SATURATION on their own.)
Use them for anything you'd like.
If you redistribute them,
please include this file.

I post these, and perhaps make updates, at
All the items will also be included (in png format)
at, the Public Domain clipart site.
