Seamless 2: Pattern Utility Plugin - Full Guide

Creating seamless patterns involves some repetitive tasks, which was the reason for why I decided to build a Photoshop plugin dedicated to this topic. The result of that, Seamless, was released in 2019 and was actually my very first plugin, so I was just learning along the way. Undoubtedly I made some mistakes back then from which I learned, but despite that, Seamless still helps hundreds of people speed up their workflows related to seamless patterns and textures.

Anyways, it’s been a while and with the release of UXP in Photoshop 2021, I thought it’d be a great opportunity to rework the whole plugin to cover even more use cases, but also to be more performant in general.

Since I had lots of functionality planned, a single interface would be way too overloaded. This led to the decision to build standalone panels for every use case, which can also be used independently from another. You could say that Seamless 2 is actually a bundle of 9 individual plugins.

In this post I’ll explain the purpose and functionality of all the panels in full detail.

Shuffle Elements

Create unique element patterns by randomizing various layer properties, such as position, rotation, scale, color and more.
