You can probably create scallop patterns the loooooooong way and add individual circles, one by one, using a guide to align them perfectly, but that is so tedious.
This Paintshop Pro script will do all the calculations needed to align all the circles and create a seamless tile.
You can choose a solid color with an outline (obviously, without an outline, a solid color scallop won't show much!), or use a gradient. And furthermore, you can use linear, radial or sunburst gradients for very unique effects.
You can get this time saving script in the store: Scallop Pattern 1 script.
Do you want a chance to win this script? Tell me, in the comments below, how you would have made a scallop pattern before using this script (template? manually? other?) I'll pick a winner next week and it will be announced in the newsletter. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).
For a sample, this week, i made 3 different tiles using the script.
For the first tile, i simply used a solid white and a black outline. The script did the rest.
For the second tile, i just used a linear gradient, going from black to white and no outline.
For the third tile, i used the exact same gradient as for the second tile, but i inverted the colors (so it went from black to white instead of white to black)
Isn't that simple?
