  • .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.

    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!!

            Moire pattern visible when printed.
            by Jo Jo
            Hi All,
            I've been sent an image by a client which has a moire pattern when viewed at 65.2% and below, however, when viewed at 100% you cannot see it. Now I know that this should not show up when printed but the client assures me that it does (it's been printed in the USA and the UK at high quality...

            Brushstroke texture/pattern
            by Guest
            It's fun and easy to make patterns to simulate brushstrokes for photo art paintings. As I make them, I will add them to this page and hope others will also. (Further down this page, under Van Gogh Patterns, I explain one way to create these.)

            First, here is an embossed texture/pattern...

            Trying to stroke a special pattern
            by Ken Rogers
            I am working on a map and I need to lay a pattern along a curved line. The pattern consists of a repeating symbol ] which must rotate to conform with the curve. A picture is worth a thousand words, so please see the attachment below. The red pattern is what I am trying to create. Can I stroke such...

            Any hope for this Moiré?
            by PixelHawk

            This is part of a client supplied image for an ad running in one of the publications I do image retouching for. As you can see there are horrible moirés in the fabric pattern on the sofa.

            I've tried just about every technique I could find in the books I have, searching...

            I would like to try some photo composites based on marine life, coral and /or shells but need a technique for producing realistic looking sea floors. I am looking for a sandy texture, wavy surface and realistic color gradients. I have made a few attempts at this myself but they all...
