    does this pack work with illustrator cs2 and how do i “install” it?
    I copy the file PAT file to the folder of swatches/patterns in illustrator but i cant find them in the program.

    Thanks

    @dcsscd: I don’t think it’ll work with Illustrator, nope. I don’t believe Illustrator can use patterns, or at least not PAT (Photoshop) patterns. However, there are ways to “import” the pattern, once placed, into Illustrator… I’m just not all that familiar with them, as I don’t use patterns much. Also, you could download the image pack, and use those – they’re just the JPGs I used to make the patterns, and – when placed together – will still be seamless.

    They weren’t really made for Illustrator, though, nope.

    so how would one add a layer style in photoshop elements? Are you able to in elements? Because I can’t find the button anywhere :S

  • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

    @Kailey: I’m not sure about Elements and how to do it. However, I DO know you CAN do it. You’d be best off to search for “layer style photoshop elements” and see what you come up with. It may be called something else, even – in fact, if I remember right, it is – but doing that search should still net you some results.

    Good luck, and sorry I couldn’t help! Been a while since I used Elements.

    >< I can't get them to work. I dont know how to put them onto gimp. I tried using JB's method, but i couldn't make much sense of it, and it didnt work really. I searched on youtube for a tutorial on how to do it, but no luck :( I really want this!

    @problemer: I’m not sure that you can use Photoshop PATTERNS with GIMP. You can with BRUSHES, but maybe not with patterns. Not that I know of, anyway. So, your best bet is to download the images, and look up how to make your own patterns in GIMP, then use those JPGs you downloaded to make them into GIMP patterns.

    Voila!

    Re Problemer: the easiest way to use PS patterns in GIMP (I’m using 2.6.7) is to download the image file, not the pattern file. Then unzip it and save the folder in your pattern folder in GIMP, just like you do for PS brushes.

    Then, when you open GIMP, those new patterns will be available under Bucket Fill, Select Pattern.

    This is because GIMP can turn most image types (jpg, gif etc) into patterns automatically as long as the images are in the Pattern folder in GIMP.

    I just downloaded this pack of images, saved them in Pattern and they were all available for me when I restarted GIMP.

    Hope this helps

    I cant unpack the fire patterns from the zip

    is the zip file damaged?

  • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

    @Rob: I just tried it, and it worked for me. Perhaps your download was corrupted? Try downloading once more, and if you’re still having trouble, let me know and I can try emailing it if you’d like.

    How do I create pattern from images? I downloaded and they were just image files.

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      @ViserExcizer: You downloaded the second link rather than the first one, then. The first download is patterns. The second is for people that can’t use patterns, and still want the images. Make sure you’re choosing “Download the patterns” :)

    its not workin on cs3

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      I have CS3 and they work just fine. Where are you running into trouble?

  • cj

    i cant get the brushes i downloaded

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      I’m not sure entirely what you mean. These are patterns. I have instructions for installing both brushes and patterns in my sidebar, under “Getting Started”. Give those a shot, and let me know if you’re still having trouble – and what’s happening.

      Hope this helps!

  • Zach

    im trying to download but it just says conecting

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      It’s downloading for me, albeit fairly slowly. It may just be a temporary server error, try again in a bit?

      If you can’t get it, I can email it to you.

  • StartAllOVERxx

    Does your flames tutorial work on GIMP? :}

  • StartAllOVERxx

    oops! sorry! I meant I downloaded your brushes on GIMP and wondered if the tutorial for creating realistic flames would work! :)

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      The concepts are still the same. GIMP should have most of the same features, but the way that you go about doing them in GIMP will be different. If you understand enough about GIMP to know what “equivalent actions” you’d have to take in GIMP rather than Photoshop (for example, if I say to make a new layer, as long as you know how to make a new layer in GIMP), then you should be able to follow it.

      Unfortunately, I know nothing about GIMP, so I can’t help you beyond that. :(

      Good luck!

    Woo hoo! This is a gnarly pattern pack thank you, Flame goes well with anything

  • Lee

    I have attempted to follow these instructions for the fire patters but it is not a .PAT file and it wont read is there any way i can get this right??

  • Lee

    Sorry Correction
    I Used your instructions on how to load the patterns and its not a Pat file.. How could i correct this?

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      You downloaded the wrong thing, then – or you didn’t unzip it. I have instructions on how to unzip here: http://www.obsidiandawn.com/how-to-unzip-a-file

      Make sure you’re downloading the pattern, and not the image pack. Then these should work just fine for ya.

    STEPHANIE,

    A QUICK COMMENT AND A COUPLE QUESTIONS..THANKS MUCH FOR THE BRUSHES, THEY ARE AWESOME!
    I USE PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS 7
    QUESTION 1#. WHEN I GO TO USE SOME BRUSHES SUCH AS THESE THEY GO WITH THE TOP PRIMARY COLOR VS MULTI COLORED LIKE NATURAL FIRE. AM I DOING SOMETHING WRONG AND WHAT STEPS CAN I USE TO GET THE RIGHT LOOK???

    QUESTION 2# I SNAGGED A BUNCH OF BRUSHES FROM HERE AS I LOVE TO USE AS MUCH MATERIAL I CAN OF VARIOUS TYPES OFTEN AS POSSIBLE…DAILY IN FACT. I LOADED THEN CORRECTLY AS SUGGESTED. BUT FIND THAT THE LIST DOESNT SEEM TO BE ALL THAT BIG AND SOME SEEM TO BE HIDDEN. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG OR HOW DO I SEE AN ENTIRE LIST OF THE BRUSHES??? DO I ONLY LOAD ONLY SO MANY AT A TIME OR WHAT???

    THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR TIME AND ANSWERS…

    REGARDS,
    JIM

      Question 1: Brushes are made to come out in only one color. But there’s ways around that. Check my tutorials section, and you’ll find two useful ones – one made just for these brushes, to show how to make a realistic fire effect. Another called “Multiple Colors with Brushes”, which explains how to get multiple colors out of other brushes.

      Question 2: I’m assuming you mean the list that loads up when you click on the small arrow on the upper right of your brushes window? That should show ALL of the brushes in your presets > brushes directory. And you can load them one at a time by clicking on the brush set’s name OR together (although there’s likely a limit to how many brushes you can have loaded at once) by choosing “Load Brushes” and adding them to the existing set. Now, keep in mind, these instructions are for regular photoshop. But it should be very similar for Elements. Sorry, but it’s been years since I’ve used Elements.

      Hope this helps, and thank you! :)

    Just used these brushes to create an awesome flyer for a BBQ competition that a neighbor and I are going to have. Turned out great thanks to you. (see link)

    I can’t download the “Fire Pattern” brush. I’ve tried several times and it doesn’t show in my files. Could you please e-mail it to me?

    • http://www.obsidiandawn.com Stephanie

      I doubt that any email will accept a file as large as this one is. I just checked it, and I’m downloading it just fine – so the download DOES work. Make sure you don’t have any download managers installed in your browser, and if you still have problems maybe downloading Firefox or Google Chrome and trying with those, fresh out-of-the-box.

      But it’s 90MB in size, which is huge. I don’t think Yahoo will allow you to accept a file of that size. And Google won’t let me attach one larger than 25MB.

      Perhaps the problem is the file size, and it’s getting hung up for you for some reason? I’m not sure what else I can do to help, other than upload it somewhere else for download.

      Let me know if you continue to have problems, and I’ll try to find a way to get this to you if you do.

      Also, it’s not a brush, it’s a pattern. That’s why it’s so huge.
