I am a huge fan of POD Graphics Maker and of Hans' work. He has made it incredibly easy to be a designer. I love how easy I can make backgrounds and graphics for my journals and planners. And not only is it easy to use, it is fun!!! I have spent hours playing around with POD Graphics Creator and have come up with some really cool creations. I bought only the basic set originally and definitely plan to buy the whole set. This is a great investment. I highly recommend it.
I've been playing with it [POD Pattern Maker] this afternoon. It's going to save hours on creating patterns which are perfect for uploading to POD sites, etc. Brilliant!
Unlike our other apps, Tiling Tool only does ONE thing, and it does it well.
While POD Graphics Maker and POD Pattern Maker unleash your creativity and create gorgeous seamless patterns out of clipart or even from scratch, Tiling Tool is the perfect finishing app.
You can use Tiling Tool for any type of image you have. It will create a full pattern in the exact size you want.
You can set the exact format you need:
- 5000x5000 pixels digital paper?
- A 6"x9" page?
- A 8.5"x11" full book cover for 120 pages and bleed?
- A 1"x11" border?
Tiling Tool can do that for you.
Tiling Tool - How it works
Select your image.
In this example a seamless tile with donut images was selected.
Even though this tile is 5000x5000 pixels, you cannot just use it for a book cover - a 6x9" book cover is 1800x27000 pixels.
You can create a canvas either in pixels, or in inches. Perfect for both digital papers and Merch designs, and book covers or coloring book pages.
With the Tiling options you can create a far more enticing cover image.
This is a 6x9" page format, where the tile is repeated and rotated.
Note: The resulting page cover is not a seamless pattern, but you don't need that for book covers.
To create seamless patterns, make sure the "Pattern Repeats" is always set to a full number (no digits after the decimal point).
Now the fun begins.
The previous image is definitely not bad, but you can also totally change the colors.
In this example, the background is set to black, setting a totally different mood.
If the tile background is not transparent, you can change that too, allowing you to choose your own background color.
Last but not least, you can totally change the color of the image.
In addition to the Transparency, Saturation and Luminosity, there are also three sliders to change the Hue... Ranging from subtle to very crude effects.
In this case we changed the donut colors to more green'ish tints, to fit better on a green background.
