    That was another great one Corey. I liked both of them, but the first one would be great for people who do scrapbooking. They could take the persons name and scatter it like that and set the picture of the person on top of it. I am gonna go do that for my neice right now. Thanks Corey!

    Hi! I came back here from the first page, from your post, well… So the new version of Photoshop doesn’t have this feature… I must say that I feel that usually they should wait some versions, not just one, to see what people really think of the app, not just the feedback sent to them, but people «with power» like you (you can begin a lobby with Scott Kelby and other people you guys know) can send them the feedback needed so that they don’t end up with features like this… Although, I must say, from the pattern itself, I don’t see much of a point in keeping it… But, that is like most stuff… After seeing the tutorial by itself I seen a nice stuff YOU can do with almost everything from Photoshop… This is why I said… If you feel it is useful… Go for it! Do a poll here at Planet Photopshop and ask people what they think, to keep, to return, to dump, whatever!
    Mate, keep your tutorials like this, they are really nice and good!

    P.s.- I will just copy/paste this comment to the post itself!

    This definitely works for me! After trying to create an image to appear as if it was crumpling (for hours end), I was able to use the pattern maker. Thank you Corey, you’re the best! I only wish I started using adobe in 1997 … when I first started out. Man would I be advanced! oh well
