About This Class

Photoshop for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn how to create more complex patterns in Photoshop. You will learn to take shapes and arrange them in a document to create a large seamless repeating pattern tile. See how to edit and add detail to the pattern and how to save it as an external .pat file that can be saved and shared. This is a sample of the pattern we will create:

Loved how this class completely clarified for me why I couldn't seem to move my objects the correct amount. Without adding or subtracting the right number, it all falls apart and I've spent hours and hours trying to figure out why my patterns in photoshop simply didn't work! But Helen makes this clear and the math is crucial. Thanks so much!!
