Choosing Patterns

The Patterns palette shows a preview of the pattern, gives tile image dimensions, and gives you options for scaling and arranging the tile in fills.

Scaling large textures can use a great deal of RAM. Most textures in Corel Painter are from 50 to 400 pixels square at 100% scaling.

Patterns are created by repeating a rectangular image tile across an area. Ideally, images intended to be tiled are created so that they tile seamlessly. Corel Painter provides ways to help you generate seamless tiles.

You can capture a pattern after you create it and manipulate it to be a half-drop design, traditionally used in wallpaper designs. Your patterns can be added to the Pattern library.
