Background patterns - scripted patterns in Adobe PS CC
The latest version of Photoshop CC now uses the patterns in even more amazing ways. To use the new pattern features in Adobe PS, go to the edit menu and fill command and select the pattern option and select a pattern (preferably one with transparency otherwise you will see square pattern tiles in the end result) and then select a scripted pattern option such as "random fill" or symmetry.
You don't have to use the scripted patterns, you can leave the check to off and just generate the standard patterns. With the earlier versions of Photoshop CC you could still use the patterns but with the latest version you get a dialog and a preview of the pattern which means the background patterns can be manipulated in a vast number of ways such as scaling setting a minimum and maximum for the background patterns 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 patterns can be seen, a whole lot easier to create stunning designs.
You can also apply the background patterns to layers which means you can build up ever complex symmetry, random fills, cross weaves, brick fills and all the variants etc. I would love to see a feature in the pattern scripts to use blending modes as well as perhaps use multiple patterns in the apply, at the moment it is a single pattern. Personal favorite is definitely the random fill pattern script
