Cloud patterns - opening and loading patterns in Adobe PS
The cloud patterns set can be opened in a variety of ways. The PATs are opened via the patterns palette in Adobe PS. The PNG (or JPG) files are opened via the open command in Adobe PS or via the place command (so they can be used as layers). The pattern files can be located anywhere and can be accessed in Adobe PS from any location; though the PAT are best used via the presets patterns folder. All the cloud patterns are seamless tiles for any size of work.
Cloud patterns applying in Adobe PS ?
You can apply the cloud patterns purely as layers, as pattern layers, via the scripted pattern fills, fills, pattern stamp brush layer styles pattern overlay, bevel textures etc. You can also use the cloud patterns PNG images as a source for brushes, displacement maps and more. Each of the pattern tools mentioned here also have many different options so the cloud patterns can be applied as is but they can also be modified in 1000s of different ways to create many different and unique cloud patterns in Adobe PS and PS Elements.
he new scripted (CC) feature can apply them as random sprays, along curves, / paths, in spiral paths, brick fills, cross weaves and more and even those different options include many settings such as scaling and rotation and color and brightness and density options.
Cloud Patterns in video timeline in Adobe PS
You can use the cloud patterns in video timelines. Create a new Photoshop layer and then add a pattern overlay via the style menu command to that layer and then go to the timeline (found via the window menu) and twirl open the options for that video layer such as position and opacity and (layer) style. Click the style enable button (a timer icon) and you can apply keyframes for the PS Styles to the cloud Photoshop pattern. You can change the scale etc of the pattern applied over time.
As you can add multiple layers with different blending modes and opacities, you can create ever changing and more complex pattern animations.
Once you have created the video animation (and you can add multiple layers as well as multiple keyframes so it might take some time), you can then render the video or save the file as an animated GIF. It would be lovely if Photoshop offered some quick and easy presets though for the video timeline for text / layers as in Adobe AE.
Cloud patterns - layers in Adobe PS
If you open the cloud PNG images via the place command in Adobe PS you can use them as basic layers and the layers can be combined and merged and blended in 100s of approaches using the powerful blending modes (lighten, darken, lighter color, normal, difference etc) in Adobe PS and PS Elements.
The patterns can also be used as layers in Adobe PS via the layer menu fill layer command and these also can be combined in millions of different ways. The layers can be used to create more complex patterns as well as even more amazing unique resources for use in Adobe PS and PSP and GIMP etc.
Cloud patterns - scripted patterns in Adobe PS CC
The latest version of Photoshop CC now uses the patterns in even more stupendous ways. To use the CC 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 Adobe 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 cloud patterns can be manipulated in a vast number of ways such as scaling setting a minimum and maximum for the cloud patterns as well as changing the color variance and brightness variance and rotation and also the density and as the cloud patterns can be seen, a whole lot easier to create stunning work.
You can also add the patterns to layers which means you can build up ever complex symmetry patterns, random fills, cross weave patterns, brick fills etc
