Unhappy .jpg to a .pat

I've recently gotten Photoshop Cs6 and I have several small jpg images that I want to convert to a .pat file. I have searched online for what seems like a week (really 3 days) and I'm about to pull my hair out as I have followed every youtube video, every instructional tutorial and they do not work. I know that Photoshop Cs6 was created differently in some aspects than previous versions.

I know nothing about this program I'm just trying to gather goodies so I can start learning it; however I'm about to scrap it because its just become a headache. I've done the file , choose image , then I've gone edit "Define Pattern", the box opens with my image to rename it so for example I just add a letter at the end and then I save. I go back into patterns and its not there.

I have also tried this using the preset manger where I should be able to choose an image as the tutorial said from my hard drive , but when I do that I can't find the jpg images because its set to .pat and I can't change that..


So if there is anyone out there that can explain this to me like a toddler step by step I would greatly appreciate cause its obvious I'm not finding the right information online.

Desperate

Re: .jpg to a .pat

Try this I think it should work in CS6

  • Open your jpeg and then goto Edit > Define Pattern
  • Name your pattern and I believe it will be saved in the pattern presets
  • To use your pattern goto the Clone tool and hold mouse button down till you get the dropdown and select the Pattern Stamp tool.
  • In the window that opens below main menu select your pattern from the dropdown menu
  • Paint away with your pattern

No need to add an extension just use the name on its own.

Awesome! Thank you so very much. I'm so glad that I found a site that actually answers the questions. The Adobe site has never answered anything I've posted.

Have a great weekend!!
