How to rotate a pattern in Photoshop ? You can now rotate the selected pattern preset in Photoshop in a number of areas of the application though sadly not in some of the more useful areas such as the brush textures.

 

You can rotate the pattern in the layer menu and new fill layer and patterns. You can rotate the pattern in the layer menu and layer styles and pattern overlay.

 

You can set the angle to anything between 0 and 360. You can still scale the pattern also in Photoshop

 

For the fill layer, go to the layer menu and fill layer and pattern. Change the angle for the pattern, it is the first entry on the panel after the pattern preset itself. Hold down the shift key to restrict the angles such as 30 degrees, 45 degrees etc

 

If you want the pattern over, go to the layer menu and layer styles and pattern overlay and change the angle there, it is between the preset and scale setting
