The Pattern frame is generated with regular patterns along the borders of the picture. You can use a sample from the built-in Library or your own image.
The Library includes a wide range of texture samples and patterns. The samples for the Pattern frame are divided into groups; you can switch between them in the drop-down list.
Below, you can choose a texture sample.
Hint: It is possible to load your own texture by selecting Custom… from the drop-down list. You can load the JPEG, BMP, TIFF, and PNG images as textures. However, we recommend using PNG images with a transparent area for this type of frame.
Adjust the parameters:
Size (1-100). The parameter changes the width of the frame.
|Size = 20||Size = 60|
Texture Brightness (-100..100). The parameter adjusts the color brightness. To darken the frame, set a value less than 0; to brighten it up, use higher than 0.
|Texture Brightness = -100||Texture Brightness = 100|
Flip Vertical . When the button is enabled, the outer and the inner edges of the frame swap over.
|Flip Vertical button is disabled||Flip Vertical button is enabled|
Flip Horizontal . Enable the button to interchange the left and the right parts of the texture.
|Flip Horizontal button is disabled||Flip Horizontal button is enabled|
The two last options allow you to arrange of the texture along the image borders and in the corners:
|Without Rotation||Rotation on Vertical Sides||Rotation on Sides and in Corners|
Random Patterns. When the check-box is enabled, the pattern frame is generated using randomly selected objects.
Count (2-20). The number of patterns taken from the Texture Library to create a frame.
|Count = 2||Count = 10|
Random Seed (0-9999). This is the starting number for the random number generator. Every number corresponds a particular set and distribution of patterns.
