Pattern Brush Tool
 

 

This tool uses the image set as the texture to fill an area with a pattern, replicating it if and when necessary. To use this tool, you must first load a texture pattern. To load a texture, use the Texture option under the Objects menu.

You can set the size of this tool's tip by setting the width entry on the toolbox. This tool is pressure sensitive when using a graphics tablet; the pressure varies the width of the tool tip.

You can select a brush-tip mode for this tool:

Options

Normal Mode

In this mode, the texture should be an image that can be tiled to form a continuous, larger image. Below is an example of such an image:

 
 

Once the texture is set, it can be applied to the surface by holding down the left mouse button and dragging, just as you would with any other of the brush tools. You are not restricted as to the size of image you can set as the pattern, nor are you restricted as to the size of the area you can fill.

 

Alternate Mode

This mode is quite similar to the first, except that the tile is inverted after every step. This usually eliminates the need for the pattern to be continuously tillable, but may not be appropriate for some patterns.

 

Blended Normal Mode

This mode is quite similar to the first, except that the tile is alpha-blended into the image based on the value of the level parameter.

 

Blended Alternate Mode

This mode is quite similar to the second, except that the tile is alpha-blended into the image based on the value of the level parameter.

 

 

 

These are the Tool-box, Palette and Layers windows, respectively. For help on how to use them, consult the User Interface article.
