Patterns for Photoshop and Elements and psp and gimp seamless tiles

 

 

dot patterns fills using magic wand in Photoshop to fill segments of the pattern

 

You can fill the patterns for Photoshop (as well as psp) using the powerful magic wand tool and fill the design with different greens or blues or other colors. You can also re-color those designs using the adjustment layers such as color lookup etc

3d patterns for Photoshop and elements text design seamless tiles fill

 

Presets can be applied (as above with 3D tiles) in all kinds of ways such as via layers. The designs can be small or huge and can be used as an abstract colorful fill as well as a more textured fill design

Applications

If the set includes PNG then you can use the tiles in

CC CC (2014) CS 6 5 4 3 2 1 Elements 12 - 1 and standalone 14 - 6

Corel Painter

Photo-Paint

CorelDRAW

Adobe Illustrator

3D Studio Max

Poser

PaintShop Pro X6 - 8

Microsoft Word

Publisher

Apple Pages

PhotoSketcher

Logoist

and many more

 

petal pattern in black in Photoshop as well as elements using pattern layers (using scaling)

 

They can be applied via the fill command as well as the fill new layer command (found in the layer menu) and via the layer menu layer effects (overlay). The above shows the petals tiles from one of our earlier sets. The design was applied using a small scaling setting in the new layer fill.

ripple pattern as a pattern layer in Photoshop (though elements as well) in black

 

Another design applied via the fill new layer command. Not all the tiles in the sets are B&W, many are colored. You can, of course, re-color the tile and then apply the design in red, green or filled with a gradient etc

contour block pattern - black and white dotted design with connection lines as a pattern layer in Photoshop

 

Another tile but this time from the pack 99 set - a contour black and white line design for use in PS as well as psp and other applications

gradient pads patterns in Photoshop - highlight pyramid design spark

 

Example above shows one of our gradient themed sets. Gradients are a great source for unique graphics, designs you can make as simple or as complex as you wish.

Converting PNG / BMP graphic files to other formats

The presets are seamless tiles and they are supplied in formats such as PNG or BMP - but what if you want TIFF or PSD or JPG ??? well, you can always convert the files. If you have PS or PSP then you can use the batch processes in those applications. GIMP is another great choice (especially as it is free). Many other applications can run through one or multiple folders to convert tile and texture files to other formats. Phatch is another useful application (free). Graphicconverter, Xnview, Irfanview .. there are many different tools all with batch processors and conversions to a wide range of formats. You can also find many online conversion sites

PAT and converting

If you are using Photoshop patterns in PAT then to convert them from PAT to PNG to BMP is impossible, there is no conversion tool but you can export the images. Place the mouse over the PAT tiles in the presets palette and you will see the size of the tile. Create a document with that file size and then use the fill command in PS and fill with the tile (or use the fill new layer command). You can then save that design as a seamless tile for use as TIFF or JPG etc. There is also a resource converter for items available on the web and that might be of use in converting resources such as presets

PNG images for Painter - Capturing tiles in Painter as starting point

Early versions of Painter could not load PNG images so to capture the PNG image as a file requires an initial step, converting the PNG image into TIFF or JPG etc. The reason I mention PNG images being that most of the sets and brush sets on this site include in PNG.

Capturing tiles in Painter

OK, once you have the PNG images and opened them in Painter. With patterns, for some reason, you do not need to select the design to capture the tile. Go to the painter palette (found via the media library / media control panels in the window menu) and right side menu and capture pattern. All the PNG images are seamless, the design will also be seamless. The capture Painter presets settings can be left as rectangle tile and bias 0. The tile has been captured and can be used as a file in Painter. You can now set the tile scale etc as well as capture additional tiles in Painter

Capturing designs in Painter - saving to patternlibrary

If you wish to permanently save the file then you have to save the captured tile to a library. Go to the libraries palette and right side menu and export library and export the captured designs. You can then re-use the Painter library at any time in the future (as long as the format is still valid).

Arrow tiles for PS and filter forge

The tiles make a great source for additional effects in the powerful plug-in tool, Filter Forge. You can find the plug-in on the filter forge site where you can purchase a basic as well as standard etc plug-in. It is currently on version 3 but it is also beta releasing a version 4. You can use PS and filter forge in combination, either using the standalone tool and / or the installed plug-in. The layers can be exported as designs which can then be re-opened in Filter forge and the end result can then be exported as a tiff or other format and then re-imported into PS as a new tile (or perhaps as a brush source). You can also miss some of those steps by simply using the PNG images that are included with the arrow sets (most sets contain the PNG images, some contain only PAT and some only contain PNG). The arrow sets all contain the tiles as PNGs. You can open the PNG images in filter forge. The original arrow tile is below (it is from the pack 49 set and is tile 80)

 

 

The same file is then opened in the powerful filter forge and this is using the grunge setting. Note that the filter might result in a non-seamless design. You could also just use the seamless tile option in filter forge and not return the result to PS. Of course, once you have this design you can then re-define the design via the edit menu in PS and then use the fill layer command to create a new layer. Filter forge is great at manipulating existing images but it also comes into its own with the creation of 1000s and 1000s of unique textures and tiles and those can then be combined with the arrow designs.

the image can be made up of X designs, cats, books, abstract designs and much more - they can also be made up of word art / text as above. You can also re-color the design as well as use visual effects and much to create millions of unique variants from the fill.

For most applications such as Paint Shop pro and others

The tiles on this page are all for use in PS and PS elements (they contain the PAT for use in PS) but they can also be used in most other applications as the sets generally also contain the PNGs - sources for the tiles - and they can be loaded as tiles in many other applications such as Paint Shop Pro, Xara, Adobe IND, Photo-Paint and many others. You can also use the super colorful exciting designs as layers in many applications as well as a source for stunning and unusual brush strokes. The tiles are in a variety of sizes all 300 DPI. They are all seamless tiles so you can use them with any size of design.

 

Photoshop patterns and selections and fills can be used with text

 

The tiles can be used to fill layers by creating a selection based on the text transparency; the tiles can be scaled as required to create an intense design for the text (in this case, the tile is from a 3D themed set) or a more abstract design. You can also then combine with PS plugins and more or just add more layers

 

pattern layer with scale 25% and dialog showing the star pattern design in Photoshop

 

Access the tiles in numerous ways in PS, you can also access the designs via layer menu new layer fill command. You can scale the tiles as well as align the PS presets as required. As layers, you can also combine the various tiles included in the set via the different blending modes for the layer - it is a pity that the fill doesn't include the blending mode and opacity on the fill dialog

Fill command in PS

They can be loaded into PS and elements in a number of ways. The best is probably via the fill command found via the layer menu and new fill layer command. The best thing about it, you can shift the tiles as well as set a scale (though why there is no angle has always baffled me.

 

star patterns over multiple layers to create a drop shadow in Photoshop in blue

 

The tiles can all be used as is but you can also combine the fills across multiple layers. Many of the presets in the packs include transparency so you don't need to use blending modes such as darked (as below) but if the layer has no transparency then you can always use blending modes such as darken or lighten or difference to blend multiple layers (as below)

Use with effects

You can apply them s as is but you can also re-color them using a variety of methods such as adjustment layers and image adjustments or styles. You can also use visual effects to the tiles such as oil paint or camera raw filter or paint daub and many other filter gallery plugins. Literally millions of amazing colorful designs can be created even from a single tile

Re-colored using the powerful camera raw filter plugin to add highlights and shadows to the design as well as new colors
