I created a pattern of concrete block coursing that I want to apply to a picture of the side of a building. The pattern is clipped so that it will repeat appropriately when filled into a large area. The problem is that depending on where I fill in the canvas, the pattern never fills in with the same start point. I want it to always start at the bottom left corner of the pattern (which is the bottom left corner of a block). Is there a way to set the point that a pattern moves out from? Also, does the pattern radiate from its center point or one of the corners?
In Autocad there is a snapbase command that lets you choose the start point for a pattern. This is exactly what I'm looking for in photoshop.
What's an easily way of browsing the patterns I currently have, but in a sense that they are already filled out on a large area so I can see the effect. So what I'm after is a way to ideally step through (single click) one pattern to the next, and see the effect it has as a pattern for a filled in area.
At the moment I see to have to keep going back to the Fill with Pattern for a given area and manually applying and then viewing. The only place I can find to see patterns is in the fill with pattern type dialog however (a) they are very small and (b) they are not tiled across an area so you can get a feel for what it will look like.
So my friend is making these designs on paper and i am tasked to put them into photoshop. The problem is when i scan them in they are patchy they look horrible. Is there a quick way to fill in the lines or do i need to find a better way to transfer drawings onto the computer such as a better scanner?
This is a basic question as I am a novice with both Illustrator and Photoshop. I have a vector shape of an apple in Illustrator. It is 2 piece- the body and the stem. I would like to fill this shape with a part of a photograph.
I'm wondering if I should do this in Illustrator or should move it over to Photoshop as a selection and then do it there? I'm also going to bevel the edges of the shape.
The next question is how to do it, which tool should I be using in either program? Is this considered a "fill" operation or am I cutting this shape out of the photo?
I'd like to select a section of an image and then fill it with a texture from another image. For instance, I could add bark texture from a tree to a section of a face. I'm not sure how to select a texture from one image and apply it to another.
I am working in Photoshop CS4...have been for years. All of a sudden, when I try to fill a closed path with a color, it fills the entire art board with color, except not inside the path. I have not selected "inverse" or anything....and it has never done this before....I can't figure out why it has started doing this, and I can't get it to stop. Most of the paths in my file, I have made in Illustrator and then pasted into Photoshop...they work normally....it is just the ones I actually draw in Photoshop that are doing this....one thing I have noticed is that in the paths palette, the paths I pasted in from Illustrator have a grey background.....while the paths I actually drew in Photoshop have a white background.
I've used Photoshop CS4 for sometime but I'm no expert!A club I'm in has asked me to fill in pre-printed membership certificates with members names etc. The only way I can think of for doing this would be to scan the certificate and call it layer
1. Then fill in the new details and call it layer 2.I then remove layer 1 and layer 2 is in the correct position for inserting the certificate into the printer and printing on it.Of course this is just my theory, how to even try it!
every time that I want to expend my picture resolution I using the crop tool and make the photo bigger but PS filling the new area with transparency instead of white. How can I set it to be white by default ?
I'm after a little info on an issue that I currently have with Photoshop. I want to make a logo that's filled with images but maintains an overall shape,for example, a outline of Australia that's filled with approx 15 images all combined but does not go outside of the overall Australian shape, would also like the outer images to bend and follow the outline without it looking"boxy".
this is not a hard one, but it is hard for me to figure out. i would like to find out how to fill a shape with some patterns exactly like how it looks in the below picture. As you can see, the filled pattern pictures(those small hearts) are not overlayed and the sizes are random. And the edge of the shape(that's the big heart) is just smooth. how to do it?
It's probably very easy, but I still can't figure it out. When I use the path-tool (Photoshop CS2), I keep getting a filled spline. But I'd rather just have an empty one instead, maybe even with a different brush? Is this possible without switching to Illustrator?
I dont really know what to call this thread as it is hard to explain what I want.... So lits say that I have a circle and I want my font to take shape and fill the inside of the circle, how would I go about doing this... I know that you can set a path and have the font foll the path but that I not what I want... What I am really asking is a fill but with the text that I am writing...
I am using photoshop for yesterday and it's black magic for me, so I ask you for a little favour. Namely, I owe a picture that needs new background, but just partial. Here's the link
As you can see there I am located between doors, that's good and I want them to leave untouched, but the point is to remove wall and stairs behind my back and switch it with sky, clouds texture (image). For example this one. I mean not to insert the whole background, just adequate part of it.
I'm working in a multi layered CS5.1 Photoshop project (I did not create it). One of the adjustment layers in the project needs a layer masks, and when I create one it is not working properly. I make my selection that I want to mask off and create the layer mask it creates it with White and a 50% gray insted of black. Likewise when I alt click to create a layer mask it fills it in with black and 50% gray. The layer did have a 87% opacity to it so I thought this was causing the gray to happen, but when I turned the Opacity to 100% the mask was still being created with gray.
I use the fill tool to fill the gray with Black or White (Fill settings are opacity 100 and fill 100) it fills the mask more like my fill opacity is set to 50%. Likewise it does this for the pant brush as well. I have messed with every layer setting I can find including the layer mask panel and the adjustment layer panel, and nothing seem to work.
when I pressed ctrl + 0 in Photoshop, an image came to fill up the available window space within Photoshop. Now, ctrl + 0 causes the image to become roughly 3 inches tall. If the image is twice as tall as it is wide, it becomes roughly 1.5" x 3". If it is twice as wide as it is tall, it becomes 6" x 3". But it never fills up the entire window space, which is about 5". I don't know why the image is defaulting to this size, and it is too small to work with. Did I inadvertently change some setting? Is it possible to restore ctrl + 0 to make the image fill the available window size again?
Create a shape with the Rounded Rectangle > I apply a Gradient & Bevel
New Layer > Fill with White > Ctrl + Alt + G (clipping mask) > change Layer Blend to Multiply > Opactity to 35% > Filter > Noise > Add Noise New Layer > Ctrl + Alt + G > Ctrl + Click on the Rounded Rectangle Shape to create a Selection
From there I am suppose to add a Stroke by right clicking on the object but that doesn't work. The only menu that pops up is a list of my layers. So, rather I select the Rounded Rectangle layer and then click Effects and select Stroke and then set the values for the stroke. Next I am suppose to add a blur.
Blur > Gaussian Blur but the Stroke ends up filling the entire object. No, I didn't set the Blur to like 1,000 it's only set to 5.9 . I tried this on an other computer and the same thing happens. I called Adobe but they were unable to assist even get as far as the Stroke.
I use to work with PS Elements 11 but now consider changing to CS6 since PSE11 photo merge does only use maximum of 3GB memory, means I can not merge more than maximum 3 pictures at the time. I tried CS6 which , however, does it properly. But it does not seem to have the AUTOMATIC FILLING OPTION PS11 consist of. Is this true or do I have to use certain settings?
I have used Photoshop 5.5 for several years, but not very often. Many times I have filled a circle or rectangle with color. but lately I have two thing going on that I can't figure out. When I fill a circle or rectangle, the color goes outside the marching ant's and fades. The second thing is, using the rectangler tool, the corners always rounds. They use to not do that. I would think it is a simple setting in both cases.
Why is it that Photoshop always fills in a shape every time you create one with the shape tools and how can I stop it from doing that? I'm trying to create just a single line of color and nothing else. Ideas?
