What is a GIH file?
Image pipe used by GIMP, an open source image editing application; contains one or more images stored across multiple sequential layers; also stores settings such as the brush spacing between each image in the pipe.
GIMP image hose files are used for brushing images on a canvas. Each image in the sequence is painted at the brush's spacing interval as the user draws on the canvas. Some built-in GIH files are located in the /share/gimp/2.0/brushes/ directory of a GIMP installation.
NOTE: GIH files should not be confused with GIMP non-pipe brushes (.GBR files), which do not store multiple image layers in the brush.
