Cutout Patterns For Brochures

Patterns are fashionable on interior design brochures and can be created in Photoshop. To make cutouts from a conceivable pattern in the software, you need a distinct set of objects, which you can print on brochures afterwards. Below is a how to guide on creating patterns in Photoshop.

Choose the Rightly Sized Canvas

To make the patterns, choose a canvas that is neither massive nor small from Photoshop presets. Go for a canvas having width and height of 50 centimeters each for instance so that you can avoid blurs on the product photo. Moreover, set the color mode as RGB Color (8 bit), the photo resolution as 300 PPI, and the background as ‘White’.

Create Shapes and Set Color Palettes

To make digital drawing easy, you can manually draw the shapes on paper with pen and then replicate the same on digital canvas. Experienced professionals in real estate photo retouching can do that straightaway in Photoshop, or create the patterns in Adobe Illustrator and then export it to Photoshop. No matter what process you choose, make sure to store the documents having drawn shapes in the software so that you can work on that in future. When choosing the color palette, go for figurative colors that are different from one another so that the patterns shall be appealing.

When you export the pattern from Illustrator to Photoshop by dragging and dropping, ensure to go one at a time since Photoshop creates a different layer for every new object. The software would also turn them into a vector shape, which you can enhance by scaling. Once you get the right size of the object, rasterize the chosen layer and alter the colors using the paint tool. In addition, ensure the sides of the object will not turn out a touch blurry or out of shape by keeping space in between the objects. The white canvas is equally important like your elementary patterns.

Split your Canvas to Seamlessly Make Patterns

Once you fill the canvas with all objects, merge the layers into another layer. Once merged, navigate to Filter > Other > Offset. This would let you make a repeating pattern in Photoshop by cutting the canvas into four portions and overlapping the objects.

Repeat the Main Pattern

Navigate to Edit > Define Pattern and choose Layer > New Fill Layer > Pattern. Do this many times over when creating a pattern to get a gist of what is on the cards. Once editing is done, change the position of objects until you meet a satisfactory cutout.
