I know how to define patterns but what if I want to keep that pattern how can I save my PSD file as a .PAT file? and in my Adobe/photoshop7/presents/patterns folder?

I ask this because if I don't click append when choosing patterns I will loose it but what if I don't want to loose it?

Sue, I just had a quick lookie and I think you can do what you need in the preset manager. (Edit--preset manager). In the menu that pops up use the drop down menu to select 'pattern' and you should see all your current patterns in the preview window. You can select one or a combination (hold the shift whilst selecting multiple patterns) and then click on 'Save set'.

This then saves a new set including the patterns you have chosen. Now you have a new .pat file that is available to you.

This seems to be true for tool presets, brushes, etc :)

hope that helps

yw :)

I tested it out and it actually only saves the patterns you select in the 'new set' so in future you wont have to delete the ones you dont want :)
