Photoshop Pattern Filetype (2012-12-04)

11 posts in this topic

This plugin allows Paint.NET to load and save the Pattern files used by Photoshop's Fill command.

Only Grayscale, Indexed and RGB mode patterns (8-bit and 16-bit) are supported.

File version 1.0.0.2.

Nice. Would you add some more info about (or a reference to) the file type specification and maybe some example files?

Always interested in this file type stuff.

As far as I can tell the pattern format has never been publicly documented by Adobe, this is the closest thing to a spec I have found (although it is wrong in a few places).

You can find plenty of example files on the web, I also created a few samples to test the indexed color and 16-bit formats.

Just confirming - load only/no save?

Yes, it is currently a load only filetype.

Plugin placed in the Paint.NET\FileTypes folder. But it does not appear in the open file selector after restart.

W7, Paint.NET 3.5.10. Any idea?

That issue has been fixed along with another bug, file version updated to 1.0.0.2.

Works for me now. You may add a little bit more information about what the plugin supports.

My interpretations ;-)

- Creates for each pattern in the file a new layer (using the name of the pattern)

- The layer size is the maximum width and height of all patterns in the file

- Supports transparency

Make sure you have placed the plugin in the FileTypes folder, then the Photoshop Pattern option should appear in the File->Open dialog
