Finding A Pattern And Making It Work

There are many reasons for wanting to blend Patterns perfectly into photos in Photoshop. It will allow you to add interest to photos and shape the way they come across. Sometimes you will be asked by clients to put their Logos on products in an image, you can use the same techniques that are covered in this episode on making Patterns blend in. We decided to edit this amazing image by Barias Sahinoglu and add a houndstooth pattern to the left subject’s shirt. The Pattern was simply found online, cropped, and duplicated in a way that kept the houndstooth Pattern consistent.

Once we had our Pattern on the image, it was time to make it blend in like it was actually part of the shirt. By warping it to the Contours of the fabric, it doesn’t look fake. After that we added Highlights and Shadows with different layer blending modes, making it even more realistic. This technique can be used for many different purposes, such as putting designs on blank t-shirts or even changing larger objects! Let us know what you come up with and submit it in a comment below!

Blending Patterns

When you are blending Patterns in Photoshop make sure to use Tools such as the liquify tool or the Warp Tool to have the fabric wrap around the piece of clothing. This will make it appear more real and keep it from looking like it is just repeating over and over again.
