1 Select the part of the image you want to fill.

2 Do one of the following:

• Choose Edit > Fill. In the Fill dialog box, for Use, choose Pattern, select a pattern from the pop-up palette, and click OK.

If Pattern is dimmed, you need to load a pattern library before you can select this option. (See "Managing libraries with the Preset Manager (Photoshop)" on page 54.)

• Select the paint bucket tool ^ . In the options bar, choose Pattern from the Fill pop-up menu and select a pattern from the Pattern pop-up palette. Then click to fill the selected area with the pattern.

Note: You can load additional pattern libraries into the pop-up palette prior to making a selection. (See "Creating and managing patterns"on page 252.)
