Filling A Layer Or Selection With A Pattern - Photoshop CS


Project Information: Skill level: Basic AdobeR PhotoshopR CS General tips

Filling an entire layer or a selected section of a layer with a pattern is an easy and fast way to create backgrounds for scrapbooking pages, greeting cards and other projects. Photoshop CS makes it as easy as a couple of clicks. There are two methods you can use. Below are the instructions for both methods.

Method One

Step 1. You can fill an entire layer by clicking on that layer in the Layers palette. If you prefer to fill only part of the layer, select the area using one of the Marquee tools in the Toolbox.

Step 2. On the Menu bar click Edit > Fill to open the Fill dialog box.
