I want to show you some plaids now. Basically a plaid is made up of bars of stripes woven at right angles to each other. To create a plaid pattern in Photoshop is basically the same steps as creating a check pattern. I created a few different plaid patterns using the stripe patterns I created earlier in my blog. The first stripe pattern I am going to use is my Pattern 50 that I posted on Thursday, March 5th. To create it, I followed the same steps I did for my check patterns:
Step 1 - Open the pattern file for Pattern 50. I had saved it as a jpg file when I originally created it so I could use it or modify it later if I wanted to. See image one below.
Step 2 - Copy the layer and rotate it 90 degrees right. See image two below.
Step 3 - Lower the opacity on the copied layer to 50% and there is your plaid pattern. See image three below.
Step 4 - See image four below for the pattern repeated in an eight inch square.
