Properties

 

 

Property

Description

Mode

Specifies the type of pattern to be created.  For example, "24 Triangles" will create an image by fitting together 24 triangular slices of the original image.

Area Selection

Below the Mode property will be a copy of the input image with a white shape on top of it that specifies the region of the source image that is to be used to create the pattern.  Drag the large shape to reposition this region, or drag the small square at it's top right corner to resize it.

Size

Sets the amount to scale down the pattern along the axes.  Although any real number can be entered, results will only tile with whole numbers.
