Hello, I have CS5 extended. I know with corel draw I can use a paint bucket to fill an area with a premade pattern and on CS5 I found the pattern stamp tool where I can paint a pattern but is there a way to dump or fill a set area with a pattern? I find when I paint a pattern even the smallest mistake of painting a section twice can lighten or darken the pattern.
Any advice on filling an area with a pattern?
There are several ways including making a selection and using a pattern fill layer, Edit>Fill>Pattern or the paint bucket tool set to pattern
paint bucket tool set to pattern:
pattern fill layer after making a selection (adjustment layer icon at the bottom of the layers panel)
Edit>Fill set to pattern:
Thanks, I knew I had to be overlooking it.
