I am interested in understanding how this system works, and how single users could design patterns of symbols that Photoshop would not be able to import.
From what I have gathered online, the pattern itself is detected by Photoshop, so I am assuming that a user couldn't design their own pattern to protect their work individually.
But is there a way to reuse the already existing pattern in a graphical document to block a user from opening an image that contains it?
