So when you replace tools' icons in GIMP's GTK3 branch with symbolic ones that +Barbara Muraus and +Jakub Steiner did last year, this is what it looks like. The are plenty more icons ready to replace the old ones, I just haven't used them.

Some icons are still missing (newer tools, selection add mode etc.), and most, if not all icons are finetuned for 16×16px size, so they are not pixel crisp in 22×22px size. But that still looks infinitely better to me.

That. Looks. Lovely.
 
WOW That looks soooo much better, wish these were default on GIMP.
Monochrome icons FTW they convey a much more professional look, Inkscape would also definitely benefit from a similar revamp.
 
Thats brilliant! Really nice and one of the things Gimp was in dire need of. I know the krita devs are kinda casting a stern eye towards their icon-sets too...
 
I am a big dark theme user so less color always good for me.
 
Waaaaaay better...! Looking so much forward to it!
 
+Lennart Östman I exported original SVGs to PNG, then replaced the original files in the theme folder, then recompiled GIMP. It's possible to create a new theme, but I didn't bother to.
 
Looks great. I think it's definitely time that GIMP shipped with a dark theme and icons such as these. Coming from Darktable, Krita, Blender and the Adobe suite (strictly during work hours these days!) I can say that I really miss something like this in GIMP. 
 
I really wonder how people can use dark themes and such icons.
 
Agreed. The longer I spend in the software, the more I need it to have dark themes. It's just easier for me to focus on the work that way. Having said that, in an ideal world there's a light symbolic theme to match the dark one, just because.
