Create patterns with nodes: Patternodes 2

Photoshop and Illustrator, as well as Affinity Designer and Photo, allow you to create patterns that you can use and reuse as backgrounds, desktop or real-world wallpaper, etc. They all require you to start from a vector or bitmap image such as a drawing or photograph and then work out how to make it seamlessly repeating. That’s not too easy, to say the least, but Patternodes has found a simpler, more user-friendly way to do it.

The Wacom Intuos Pro Paper Edition Review

Wacom’s new Intuos Pro graphics tablet is the thinnest since the company started selling graphics tablets many years ago.
