Patterns - opening and loading in Adobe PS

They 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 files can be located anywhere and can be accessed in Adobe PS from any location; though the PAT are best used via the presets folder. All are seamless tiles for any size of work.

Modifying the source tiles

The patterns can be used as is in Adobe PS and psp but you can always edit them before use. Best to make a backup though before you do any work with the original. Edit the PNG images and use the define pattern command (edit menu in Adobe PS) and use that 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 PNGs as well as other paths, or re-color the tile and then define as a new pattern.


A set of 100 patterns can be turned into millions of amazing artworks.


You can also save all the actions to a Photoshop action or script and then apply the same changes to numerous other pattern tiles. If you open the same size of document as the tile, you can also use the pattern layer 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 tiles

Star patterns - layers in Adobe PS

If you open the 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 1000s of ways using the powerful blending modes (lighten, darken 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.


 and elements scaled


They can be scaled to 10% or 50% etc as required as well as offset as required


The pattern layers can be used to create ever more complex patterns as well as even more amazing unique patterns for use in Adobe PS (as well as other applications). With the pattern layer, you can even scale them (the fill command can also be applied to a layer so the patterns can be used with the new scripting features)


 and duplicated layers and image adjustments


They can be used on a layer and as a layer the stars can be duplicated over and over to create a far more complex. They were then flattened and re-colored using the image adjustments color lookup

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


and elements smart object metal styles


They can be used on a layer and can be turned into a smart object, as a smart object you can apply PS Styles such as metal effects and gel effects etc

Patterns and transparency in Adobe PS

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 down items can still be seen.


you can duplicate the items to create all kinds of artworks


You can use a single layer but with the transparency to combine multiple layers and create millions of variant artworks from the sets


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 work

The pattern sets all include the patterns in PAT but they are also in PNG. The PNG 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. They will lose any color.


retro colorize using adjustment layers


Retro tiles can be re-colored using the adjustment layers in Adobe PS


You can also, of course, use visual effects to the pattern or smudge or blur or apply black and white adjustments to create ever more unique brushes which can be used throughout Photoshop as well as PSP and other applications

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 images 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 patterns in Adobe PS and PS Elements. For example, the new scripted patterns feature can apply them as random fills, along paths, in spirals, 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
