Viewing Images tiled in gimp?

Hey, I was just wondering how I could view images tiled in gimp, for making tileable pictures, there is a way right, I just can’t find out where.

One way is Fliters > Tile > Map
You may need to copy visible, then paste as a new layer, as it creates the new image from the layer chosen.

If you want to see your image as several small tiles, you can use: Filters > Map > Small Tiles
If you want to make you’re image automatically tileable, you can use: Filters > Map > Make Seamless
