background patterns for Photoshop and elements and psp oil paint effect

Above, the original background was added using the fill layer content command. Using the artwork as a smart object, a number of oil paint filters were applied to smear and blur the original tiles and then a camera raw filter was used on the pattern to darken the edges of the artwork and add a red glow to the center of the image. The filters (especially camera raw filter) can be used in countless ways to manipulate the color of any image in PS and personally, I find the radial tool really useful for all kinds of highlights and glows and much more

How to use the script features

The latest version of Photoshop CC now uses the tiles in even more amazing ways. To use the new script features in Adobe ® Photoshop ®, go to the edit menu and fill command and select the pattern option and select a tile from the offered selection and this can be updated to display any number of sets of tiles - ones that can be found on this site as well as ones that can be found generally on the web (preferably one with transparency otherwise you will see square tiles in the end result) and then select a scripted option such as "random fill" or symmetry. You don't have to use the scripted features, you can leave the check to off and just generate the standard artworks. With the earlier versions of PS CC you could still use the patterns but with the latest version you get a dialog and a preview of the tiles which means the backgrounds can be manipulated in a vast number of ways such as scaling setting a minimum and maximum for the effect as well as changing the color and brightness as well as rotation (the background patterns can be applied as is and not randomly rotated) and also the density and as the background can be seen, a whole lot easier to create stunning designs. You can also apply them to layers which means you can build up ever complex symmetry, brick fills, random fills, cross weaves and all the variants etc. I would love to see a feature in the scripts to use blending modes as well as perhaps use multiple tiles but at the moment it is a single tile though you can always workaround this by using the routine more than once and using them on layers and modifying the density etc to display more or less of the tiles in each pass. Personal favorite is definitely the random fill script

How to use as displacement maps

Displacement maps are in PSD format so you will have to either export the PAT / preset panel item or convert the JPG / PNG etc to PSD. You can combine multiple PNG tiles and export them as a flattened PSD. To find the dimensions of the document for the PAT to PSD just hover over the tile you want in the preset's panel and you will see the dimensions listed and then create a document of equal size and then use the edit menu fill command to fill with the current selected tile. The displacement maps can be used in a variety of filters throughout PS such as displace / glass distortion / texturizer etc. If you are interested in other displacements then there are a large selection of maps available on the graphicxtras site including Photoshop displacements (Xmas, hearts etc)
