Load External Bitmap Fills

 

 

 

Open Pattern Fill Window
Create a rectangle at least 3" wide and high, with no fill. Select the rectangle with the Pick Tool. Choose the Fill Tool from the Toolbox to open the fly-out. Choose the third icon to open the Pattern Fill Window.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose Bitmap Pattern Type
Choose the Bitmap option in the Pattern Fill window.

 

 

 

 

 

Load Bitmap File
Click on the Load button to open the Import screen. Specify the folder where the file you wish to load is located. You may wish to specify the type of file from the Files of Type drop-down selector. (The selector lists all types of files that can be used for Full Color fills - not all files are appropriate for patterns - this is simply the list of accepted formats.) Choose the file you wish to use and click Open.

 

 

 

 

 

Choose New Pattern
The pattern you have chosen will now show in the pattern selector preview in the Pattern Fill window. Click OK.

 

 

 

 

 

Pattern Fill Results
Your rectangle will be filled with the Full Color pattern. If you would like the pattern repeat to be larger or smaller, or start in a different position within your object, see Pattern Fill Options later in this tutorial. Note how one repeat of the pattern you chose fits exactly into a 2" square. The default size for pattern fills is 2". The guides are placed at the pattern repeat from the bottom left corner.
