V1.9 repeat pattern layer with multiple images?


Recommended Posts

is there a way to create “half drop” repeat patterns in version 1.9 or does it limit you to only single image simple even patterns? 
How about patterns with multiple images? 


Also, Can I import other elements from another file or another layer to incorporate it into the repeat pattern layer?

I have no idea what  "half drop" means. I think you are restricted to what you can actually draw in the repeat area, there is a New Pattern Layer from selection which might get you partway there.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Right-click on another layer, Merge Down. (in the layers panel)

The only problem with this method is that it crops images on the edges.  It doesn't treat it as a compete continuous pattern. I am restricted to uniform straight looking patterns and I have to stay within the layer border.  This created boring uniform patterns.

Corel Painter and Clip Studio paint allow me to add or draw extra images, and if I go out of the border, it compensates for that and makes sure it remains un-cropped and as part of the image. 

Am I missing something or misunderstanding the pattern layers?
