The Library contains a rich collection of textures and patterns grouped in sets.

To load your own texture into ArtSuite, select <Custom>… in the list.

This will open the dialog to load your own texture.

Step 4. Use the settings to resize, mirror the texture, adjust brightness, or flip the frame vertically to change the frame's appearance.

Pattern Frame

Step 1. Prepare the image which you will use for the frame. For best results, use a square image in the PNG format with a transparent background. If you have no such images, you can choose any other, such as:
