One way is to use the Scale window from Object > Transform > Scale but with only Transform Patterns ticked. If it seems to not work, make sure the selection isn't grouped. To apply this to everything a pattern is applied to, first select something that has the pattern, then Select > Same > Fill color.

Well you can actually make it a pattern in Photoshop. With the tile open, select all and choose Edit > Define Pattern. Then it's a pattern just like all the other built in Photoshop patterns. If you know the tile size you can create a new document the size of 4 tiles, then just apply a pattern fill layer. With a 500x500px tile, create a 1000x1000px ...

This is for GIMP Start with something like an A5 canvas size Create a new brush like this Create a new Paint Dynamic preset, and set the matrix as follows Increase the size of the brush as you like, and paint random coloured lines, choosing different colours, on a new transparent layer above a black background layer. Continue until you've built up enough ...

With a bit of boolean operation trickery this is a pretty easy process. Just take a set of the hexagons you have there, create a rectangle that matches the orange one I've got in the image above (make sure the corners snap to the appropriate points on the hexagons), and then use the intersection tool to get rid of everything outside of the rectangle. That ...

With a pattern. In this case a 3 axis grid (triangular). Once you know what to draw on each piece, you need to repeat this. You can have and use sub-patterns or smaller ones to be more exact. These patterns are pretty easy to draw, and they are used for example in architecture in different cultures. We are used more to a square pattern, but this triangular ...

Select the overlapping shapes and use Divide in the Pathfinder palette to chop the shapes into pieces: That will look something like this: Then select the appropriate pieces and use Unite in the Pathfinder palette to recombine them like this:

You could script something to generate these but it's easy enough with a couple of circles, depending on the level of control and precision you need. This is just a bunch of concentric circles with a dashed stroke set with 0.1pt dashes: You can use a width profile to control the size of the dots and simply add a gradient stroke for the color: If you need ...

Use the Polar Grid Tool. This is what it's for. Tap the ↑ arrow on the keyboard while dragging to add rings. Tap the ↓ arrow while dragging to remove rings. Tap → or ← arrows to remove or add dividing lines.

You can't really have solid shapes like that overlapping above and below different parts of the same shape. What I normally do is simply duplicate the shape. You then have one for the "behind" parts and one for the "in front" parts, and delete, mask or otherwise hide the appropriate areas... So you start with two shapes like this: Duplicate the bottom ...

(BTW - nuns also made illuminated manuscripts...) Very interesting question. I have studied old manuscripts for years, and there are a few things to keep in mind; either as explanations or as interesting anomalies. I think a general history of illuminated manuscripts might also be interesting, but that would be a different question. Vellum and parchment ...

Use a pattern... There are a bunch of line patterns loaded with Illustrator by default (Open Swatch Library → Patterns → Basic Graphics → Basic Graphics Lines). You can use them as a second fill using the appearance panel and use blending etc to get the effect you want. You can add a Transform effect to that specific fill (make sure to check ...

These images are called illusory motion, and curiously enough, there's still no solid explanation for them (there are strong theories, though). Some visual scientists think it has to do with fixation jitter: involuntary eye movements that give the illusion that objects near what you're fixated on are moving. Others think that when you glance ...

Here' my approach for Gimp: Used an interesting photo with colours I liked Source: Wikimedia - New York Times Square Chose a region of interest from this photo Increased saturation, contrast, and (optionally) made an indexed Image Used the inbuilt filter paper tile with broad width and low height Scaled image to desired width The fun part is when only ...

To create such organic looking shapes, it's IMO best to use some randomness as a starting point for your design. Thankfully some design tools (e.g. Photoshop) come with a handy "Clouds" effect, which renders some random noise, that looks initially a similar to clouds: From the main menu, choose Filter -> Render -> Clouds Now that you have ...

If you follow your own link and scroll a bit down, it's explained and exemplified how the patterns were made. It seems that the patterns are in fact closeup photographs of Poison dart frogs. So you need to find some free images of poison dart frogs online. Like this one from Wikimedia Commons (by Ltshears and in the Public Domain). It's easy to find a crop ...

Use Blend and Clipping Masks! Make a text by text tool and write anything! Press P to select pen tool and draw simple line (you can use line tool too). Remove Fill and Give Stroke to the line eg. 4px. Duplicate your line and drag it down and reduce stroke to very less eg. 1px; Go to Object → Blend → Blend Options and change spacing to Specific Steps and ...

As you have already selected the correct answer, this is for anyone who want to know the exact steps. Create your smallest circle using the ellipse tool, then create your biggest circle around it (copy the smaller circle then press ctrl+shift+v to paste in place and hold shift to scale up (On PC)); highlight the two and choose Object > Blend > Make ...

It is not that hard. And here is how you can make it: 1. Create a desired size rectangle, add a line across it and align them properly to center. Then copy-rotate the line by 10 degrees (or 6, 360 needs to be divisible without remainder). 2. Then select all objects and click on the Divide tool on the Pathfinder Panel. 3. Now easily select every secont ...

I started with creating a circle (50pt diameter) and using a few lines and the Shape Builder Tool, I broke it into 4 equal pieces: Then used Transform effects (Effect → Distort & Transform → Transform) to move the shape 50pt and create a bunch of copies. Now Expanded with Object → Expand Appearance and ungrouped everything. I now have a bunch of ...

The way to go there is to create the patterns yourself - and have GIMP load them as the existing patterns that can be dragged to an active selection or used with the Bucket fill or Clone tools. Of course, the easiest way to create them is to use GIMP itself - for a dotted pattern with B&W, for example: Create a new image 5x5 pixel in size, with white ...

You can create your own colorful pattern, but you can also simply change the color of the built-in patterns for your file. For example, starting from a simple shape filled with a built-in pattern: You can change default color (black in the example) using Extensions -> Color -> Replace color command In the pop-up windows you can replace the original ...

Create the largest one. Then create the smallest one via Edit > Copy (Ctrl/Option+C) -> Edit > Paste in front (Ctrl/Option+F) -> scale down. Then select both objects, go to Object -> Blend and select specified steps.

There are a couple possible workarounds. Construct patterns so the stitching is in non-critcal locations if possible. Apply a new fill behind the pattern fill which is the primary color of the pattern. Expand pattern fills in order to eliminate the stitching. Turn off "Enhance thin lines" in the Acrobat Page Display Preferences. (Obviously this item can be ...

Open image in Photoshop Go to Filters > Other > Offset Adjust vertical offset so that the image seam is in the middle of the image Use the liquify tool to seamlessly connect the ribbons together Fail miserably Consider trimming all excess whitespace, and use background-size: contain instead More info on the background-size property

In the end I couldn't find a mechanism to automatically distribute and repeat a pattern, but this article on The Noun Project's blog did give a really good runthrough of how to do it; manually, but reliably and relatively easily. Summary of article The most important thing to note, is that each shape on the edge of our square needs to have a ...

It is called a Voronoi (cell/noise) pattern. See: Wikipedia Photoshop has a Voronoi pattern filter: its called crystallize Image 1: A Voronoi pattern, usinhg Photoshop crystallize. Its often a good idea to trim the corner cells away. And if possible do the cells yourself. Fun link: A interactive Voronoi pattern click to add new cells. Edity: this can ...
