This video tutorial will show you how to make 2 kinds of polka dot patterns in Photoshop.
EDIT: After making this tutorial, an easier method was pointed out to me, so you can check that out too.
Great tutorial! I never imagine it was so easy.
I enjoyed your video. Easy to understand - your teaching skills are showing! I prefer the alternating polka dots, they are always so pretty with anything.
@Sunny: haha! shhh, don't tell my mom (both my parents are life long educators).
Not to rain on your parade, but i found a tutorial a while ago which explained an even faster way to arrange your dots... using the offset filter. If your interested, take a look: http://www.photoshopessentials.com/basics/repeating-patterns-intro/
Oh, and btw, this makes it unnecessary to find the exact middle (or quarter) of your polka dot! Heaven!
Well, that looks really excellent! Now I don't have to do all the complicated arithmetic! Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for the great tutorial (and the link to the 'easier' method too) - I'll try them out and see which one my brain prefers
I discovered I had an offset option in PSP last night. I have been doing this the long way for forever. I made a really cute paper last night (I think it's cute lol). I don't know how to openly share it, but I can post it here I think.
Cool! Thanks for sharing!
@Renee That is really cute! Thank you for sharing!
It IS really cute~! Thanks for sharing indeed
Thank you so much for the link! I have just managed to create my first "thing" in Photoshop Elements. Probably not worth an Oscar but I am so proud lol...There are plenty of tutorials on that side and for me as a super newbie its great that experts like you share their knowledge! So big thank you from Spain!
I was much more complicated. You do not know how to help me.
wow fab neded that help xxx
I wonder if anyone knew how to make the offset filter behave itself. Sometimes I have to try several times to get it to work correctly and I don't know what I am doing wrong!
Amazing!! this help me so much, thanks!
Thank you for the tutorial and for the Link
This is amazing and really the fastest way to create polkadot pattern I used to use ruler and it's quite take time to create it. Thanks for this, Marisa. Really appreciate it!
