Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Type patterns with symmetry fill, part of Photoshop for Designers: Type Effects (2018).
- [Instructor] In this movie, I'd like…to show you some options, working with…Photoshop's Pattern Symmetry Fills.…In my finished state, I've made several takes,…all of them using the same pattern tile.…So, the first thing we need to do,…is create a pattern tile.…Here's my starting state.…Because I want to create a pattern that uses…overlapping shapes, my type is negatively tracked,…so that the characters overlap each other,…and also, on two, separate type layers.…
To accentuate the areas of overlap,…I'll change the blending mode to Multiply.…I also want to add some texture.…So I'll turn on this layer above, a layer of crumpled paper,…and I want this to be clipped to the type layers below.…Because there are two, I will need to group them,…Command or Control + G, then hold down…the Option or Alt key, and click on the line…that separates them from the texture above.…
So, the texture is now clipped to the type.…When making a pattern tile, you probably…do not want any opaque color in the background.…So, for that reason, I'm going to throw away…
