Repeating pattern / seamless tile design in Photoshop and Illustrator -- do I need plugins?
posted by kmel to Computers & Internet (11 answers total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
I'm interested in generating repeating patterns for silkscreening. I know that you can make seamless tiles with Photoshop but I haven't figured out all its possibilities and limitations. Ideally I would be able to vary the scale, rotation, drop, etc. of the motif. I'm not as familiar with Illustrator so I have very little idea what its capabilities are for repeating motifs.
I also know that there are Photoshop and Illustrator plugins out there, but don't know if they're worth it. Anyone here ever used any of these? Or know of other plugins I should look into?
Any additional pointers to books or websites that could help me with this quest would be much appreciated.
