Can I resize the texture pattern that applied via Illustrator graphic styles? And if not, is there any workaround to achieve this?

Maybe you could give a bit more information or even link a screenshot. What have you tried so far? – kontur Dec 21 '12 at 7:26

Sometimes, but it depends on the graphic style you're trying to scale.

Graphic Styles are just a collection of filters. You can edit the filters by expanding the Fill of the object the style is applied to (in the Appearance pane):

RGB Cobblestone

To scale this Graphic Style, we can click on the Stained Glass effect and edit the cell size:

Stained Glass Cell Size

This will increase the size of the "stones" in the Graphic Style:

Scaled Graphic Style

It will be a different setting to tweak for each Graphic Style since they are all different, but this should put you on the right track.

Thanks, John. But what about the RGB image that comes with the graphic style? – Bruno Dec 21 '12 at 5:50
Which part, the gradient? – JohnB Dec 21 '12 at 5:58
