grid fill - but not exactly

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to create effect like this - if you take a closer look, you'll see the small dots.


I was trying to achieve this by using grid fill, but the grid lines are too thin, and the squares are too big... and they should be rounded ...

can you help me please?

Best regards

I have found a solution - well, it may not be what your after ...

#1 Fill your background

#2 Make a new layer ( :AddNewLayer: ) Name it Verticle

#3 Make annother new layer ( :AddNewLayer: ) Name it Horizontal

#4 Make your main colour whatever colour you want the spacing (lines) inbetween the dots to be and completely transparent as secondary

#5 Do a fill ( :FillSelection: ) with the 'Light Verticle' on the layer Verticle

#6 Do a fill ( :FillSelection: ) with the 'Light Horizontal' on the Horizontal layer


Extra - you can blur ( :GaussianBlur: )the squares to make it look like your image
