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!
So awesome, no more stamping individual dots.
Another awesome tutorial. I am always amazed about how much I don't know.
Why are there just big X's on the replies etc. where there should be a photo. On this one I can't see Marisa's reference to her video tutorial or Renee's paper she created. It is like that all over the forum for me. Does any body know what it could be?
Thanks for the video tut and link!
