Patterns - opening and loading in Photoshop
They can be opened in a variety of ways. The PAT format files are opened via the patterns palette in Photoshop. The PNG (or JPG) files are opened via the file open command in Photoshop or via the file place command (so the designs can be used as layers). The files can be located anywhere and can be accessed in Photoshop from any location; though the PAT files are best used via the presets folder. All are seamless tile designs for any size of work.
Modifying the source tiles
The patterns can be used as is in Photoshop and psp but you can always edit the designs before use. Best to make a backup though before you do any work with the original designs. Edit the PNG files and use the define pattern command (edit menu in Photoshop) and use that design as a tile. As long as you avoid the seams, any changes to the tile will remain as tiles. You can quickly add shadow effects to the PNG designs as well as other paths, or re-color the tile designs and then define as a new pattern. A set of 100 patterns can be turned into millions of amazing designs. You can also save all the actions to a Photoshop action or script and then apply the same changes to numerous other pattern tile designs. If you open the same size of document as the tile design, you can also use the pattern layer designs as a source for new tiles - so if the tile is a 1000 x 1000 (hover over the pattern tile in the palette to see the size) and the document is 1000 x 1000 or multiples of that (2000 x 2000 etc), you can also use that to define and create new amazing tile designs.
Star patterns - layers in Photoshop
If you open the PNG files via the file place command in Photoshop you can use the designs as basic layers and the layers can be combined and merged and blended in 1000s of ways using the powerful blending modes (lighten, darken etc) in Photoshop and PS Elements. The patterns can also be used as layers in Photoshop via the layer menu fill layer command and these also can be combined in millions of different ways. The pattern layers can be used to create ever more complex pattern designs as well as even more amazing unique patterns for use in Photoshop (as well as other applications). With the pattern layer, you can even scale the designs (the fill command can also be applied to a layer so the patterns can be used with the new scripting features)
They can be scaled to 10% or 50% etc as required as well as offset as required
Patterns for Photoshop and convert to Photoshop styles
You can also use the patterns via the layer style menu and the powerful pattern overlay. You can also use the patterns with the stroke section in the layer style dialog. The patterns can also then be saved as permanent styles ASL format for future use
Patterns and transparency in Photoshop
Many of the pattern sets for Photoshop include transparency - what use is that you may ask ?? well, you can combine the patterns so much easier when they contain transparency. One pattern can be placed above another and the lower stars can still be seen. If you don't want to use the transparency, you can quickly remove the transparency (it is a lot harder to add in). The patterns can also still be applied as Photoshop layers / PSP layers etc and blending modes applied such as lighten and darken and difference. You can combine the same patterns as well as different patterns as well as other patterns to create ever more complex or simplicity to your designs.
Star patterns as brushes
The pattern sets all include the patterns in PAT format but they are also in PNG format. The PNG format patterns can be used as a great source for brushes. Easy to use, simply open the PNG pattern file and then go to the edit menu and define brush. The design will lose any color. You can also, of course, apply effects to the pattern or smudge or blur or apply black and white adjustments to create ever more unique design brushes which can be used throughout Photoshop as well as PSP and other applications
Star patterns applying in Photoshop ?
You can apply the patterns purely as layers, as fill content layers, via the scripted patterns, fills, pattern stamp brush layer styles pattern overlay, bevel textures etc. You can also use the patterns PNG files as a source for brushes, displacement maps and more. Each of the tools mentioned here also have many different options so the patterns can be applied as is but they can also be modified in 100s of different ways to create many different pattern designs in Photoshop and PS Elements. For example, the new scripted patterns feature can apply the designs as random fills, along paths, in spiral designs, brick fills, cross weaves and more and even those different options include many different settings such as scaling and rotation and color and brightness settings
Star patterns for Photoshop etc videos
You can use the patterns as is but you can also add patterns to the patterns in Photoshop - use smart objects
The gradient maps feature of Photoshop is a very useful way to introduce a lot of great color designs to any pattern (which are often already super colorful)
