Once you have scanned your pattern, you need to put it together either on Illustrator or Photoshop. If your pattern has several pieces you need to create a file for each one. Even though you can use either program, Photoshop will give you more freedom when manipulating the image. Open the program you will be using and create a new document. Go to File> New and in the dialog box make type in the dimensions of your document. It should be a bit larger than the size of your pattern piece. This will be your piece base file, which should be named after your pattern and the piece number (ex: Pattern Name _01.psd) so that if you have 3 pieces in your pattern you would create a file for each (ex: Pattern Name _01.psd, Pattern Name _02.psd, Pattern Name _03.psd)
New pattern categories and how-to changes.
