adob photoshop notes class 25
11. Use the small handle in the bottom right to enlarge the window, so you can see more patterns at a time. Drag out to get 8 patterns in each row as shown here:
12. You need to choose one of the patters. Choose Blue Daisies, which we have in the fifth row:
13. Click OK. Now you can see the pattern in place. It fills the whole background, so the teddy bear sits on a carpet of flowers.
14. Try some of the other paterns for yourself Ã¢â‚¬â€œ there is a wealth of possibilities!
Make your own pattern
You can also define your own patterns based on any open picture or a part thereof. You can make a square selection of an area and then use the command Edit --> Define Pattern; but you have to try that for yourself. Here we look at PhotoshopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pattern supply.
1. Make sure that the plys layer is selected in the layer palette. Then choose menu items Filter --> Pattern Maker. That opens this large dialog box:
2. Now you need to make a small selection around the text on the teddy bearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sweater:
3. In the right side of the dialog box you need to define the patternÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s size (in pixels). Enter 96 in the fields Width and Height:
4. Click on Generate:
5. Now you see the finished pattern in the large window:
6. That looks quite amusing. But try to see other variants of the pattern. Click on the button Generate Again:
7. Click a few more times on the same button. For each click, the filter makes a new variant of the pattern.
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"> <tbody><tr> <td valign="top" width="177"> 8. In the bottom right of the box you can flick forth and back between the different options by using the small forward and reverse arrows:
</td> <td valign="top" width="177">
</td> </tr> </tbody></table> 9. When you have decided to save one of the patterns, you click on the small diskette icon to the left:
10. Name the pattern plys1, and click OK. Now the picture is included in PhotoshopÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pattern library. We no longer need the large Pattern makers dialog box. Close it by pressing Escape.
11. Select the layer pattern 1, and insert a new layer. Name it pattern 2:
12. Select the Fill dialog box again with the shortcut Shift-+Backspace, and fill the new layer with the pattern plys1:
13. Save image file Ã¢â‚¬â€œ that is important, because it is finished now. You see the result in Figure 24 on page 60.
