Creating a seamless pattern isn’t as easy as it looks. It’s easy to spend hours in Photoshop trying to create texture that will repeat perfectly, only to find that it’s slightly off, but it isn’t easy to get those little imperfections fixed. Instead, you need a tool that will automate the process of making your pattern repeating, taking care of the hard part while freeing you to focus on your design.
The COLOURlovers team has created a ton of tools for anyone who loves colors, palettes, patterns, and more. Their web site lets you discover new designs and share them, and their development team has been creating new creative tools to help you get in on the creation process.
Starting with their simple Seamless Lite web app, a free tool to create basic patterns online, COLOURlovers created an advanced pattern creation tool for your desktop: Seamless Studio. This app lets your pattern designs come to life easier than ever. Let’s take a look and see if this is the tool that’s been missing from your design toolkit.
If you’re interested in getting more creative with your Twitter profile, chances are, you’ve either chosen a stock theme, created your own theme or went in search of backgrounds to use in your theme. Either way, there’s an easier way to get the personalized Twitter theme you’re looking for that’s a whole lot more creative.
If you’ve been on the design page in your Twitter settings, you might’ve noticed a little something about Themeleon (Thee-mee-lee-uhn, like Chameleon). Themeleon, by COLOURlovers, has more than 600K seamless background patterns and more than 1 million color palettes! Although those numbers sound daunting, it’s fun and incredibly easy to use. We’ll take a look at quickly personalizing a Twitter profile just to our liking.
