Patterns are used with several tools in Photoshop CS and the program comes with many preset patterns. But there will be times when you want to create your own pattern for a special project. In Photoshop CS it is easy to "define" a new pattern and save it to the list in the Pattern pop-up palette. Follow the steps below.
Step 2. On the Menu bar click Edit > Define Pattern to open the Pattern Name dialog box.
Step 3. Give your new pattern a name and click OK.
Your new pattern is now on the list in the Pattern pop-up palette. You can use any pattern with the Paint Bucket tool, Pattern Stamp tool, Healing Brush tool, Patch tool and the Layer Style dialog box.
