You can't use effects or brushes with entire rectangles. Simply create one side, then draw the other three sides of a rectangle. Create the triangles easily by drawing a path and choosing Effect > Distort & Transform > Zig Zag Choose Object > Expand Appearance Grab the Pen Tool and draw the other three sides of a rectangle.

In your screenshot, the Layers Palette shows the layers folders open, showing the contents of each layer / sub-layers. A shape is simply a closed path — a path in which there are no open end points. I think what you are trying to do is "subtract from shape." Select the Window drop down from the top menu and make sure Pathfinder has a checkbox by it. In my ...

In Photoshop CS6 or newer, you can simply set the Stroke Options for a vector path....

I'm not entirely sure it will work as intended, but you could try to give the image a text wrap. Select it, and find the Text Wrap palette through Window > Text Wrap or Alt+Ctrl/Option+W. Click the second icon 'wrap around bounding box'. That way, the image will not tolerate any text on top of it, pushing any text that would come under or over it to lower ...

The script does work if you mess around with it a bit. And yes, joojaa is correct, it is a JSX. Line 2 needs to be changed to an actual destination using slashes instead of backslashes, plus a semicolon at the end. I.e., var destination = "C:/Users/USERNAME/FOLDER/"; You could also alter line 9 to options.quality = 100; if you aren't actually saving ...

Ok do this: Make a line about the length of the ZigZag size you need(use the line tool or pen tool). Make sure to put a color on the Stroke or Fill of the line before the next step. Go to Effect > Distort & Transform > ZigZag Click the preview checkbox and adjust the Size and Ridges per Segment sliders until satisfied. Once you've hit OK you'll have ...

The most difficult part of pattern creation is finding the proper pattern tile. You essentially have to examine what you see to figure out the smallest area possible which is repeating. When you try and create a tile which is too large you can easily run into alignment issues. For example, in your art, the circles are of varying sizes. Some are larger than ...

While Vincent's answer is correct if this image were to be on a single page to be placed inside a text block I think you're going to run into issues on the export because you will have to export the ePub as a fixed layout to get this to work as a spread on a device. Since you will run into complications with the text and the image I would use what's ...

The basics, however, are to create the pattern, then select it and drag it into the swatches pallette (or use Object > Pattern > Make). In order to make the seams more seamless, you can resize the artboard to the appropriate dimensions and export just the artboard portion. In this case, I'd guess you can just resize the artboard to surround one of the ...

You can also do it with other CS6 compatible scripts: Select Open Paths Close All paths Select Open Paths And this super nice one that lets you select open paths, gradients, transparencies, etc: Extended Select

As I said, a task better suited for AI, but this is how I would do this in PS. There may be a better way to go about this, but I don't use PS for this kind of stuff, so I don't know about it, if there is. The initial shape: I made a duplicate of the shape and decreased the Fill to 0%. This is the shape that I then applied my stroke to. I then selected ...

Make sure that the initial jpeg and the CS6 file resolution are both on inches. The conversion done on Adobe's cut/paste between software usually works best on the same suite (within CS6 all around, etc.).
