I have been ignoring everything else - except for the phone call from the 6 1/2 year old and her soon to be 2 year old sister. Even an addict has to draw the line somewhere.
At any rate I have been back here playing for a little more than an hour ignoring the hubster and missing the Tiger game.
Here is what I have come up with so far:
A couple of things to remember:
For those patterns that you just don't like go to Edit > Preset Manager and choose Patterns from the drop down menu. Hover over the patterns to find the ones you want to get rid of and do an Option/Alt-click. When you hold down the Option/Alt button the little cursor changes to a pair of scissors and when you click they cut it out.
For those that you do want to save, go to Edit > Preset Manager and select the ones you made (if they are adjacent, select the first one and shift click on the last one. All the ones in between will be selected also. If they are nonadjacent, click on the first one and then Command-click on each of the others.
Once you have them selected, choose Save Set and name it. I put mine in Applications > Adobe Photoshop CS3 > Presets > Patterns.
Hope you have fun trying these!
