To use a preset pattern from the Post Script Patterns folder:

1 Choose File > Open. Each preset file in the PostScript Patterns folder (which comes with Photoshop) contains a single pattern in the Adobe Illustrator format. You can scale and render these patterns at any resolution.

2 Select the pattern file you want to use, and click Open.

3 Select any rasterizing options. (See "Opening and importing images" on page 73.)

4 Make a rectangular selection around the pattern, or make no selection to use the whole image.

5 Choose Edit > Define Pattern.

6 (Photoshop) Enter a name for the pattern in the Pattern Name dialog box. Managing patterns (Photoshop)

Preset patterns are displayed in pop-up palettes in the options bar for the paint bucket, pattern stamp, healing brush, and patch tools, as well as in the Layer Style dialog box. You can load, reset, and save libraries of preset patterns, and rename and delete individual preset patterns.

Note: You can also use the Preset Manager to load, reset, and save libraries of preset patterns, and rename and delete individual preset patterns. For more information, see "Managing libraries with the Preset Manager (Photoshop)" on page 54.
