Photoshop Pattern – The Ultimate Collection

Photoshop users can save themselves a great deal of time and end up with better results by taking advantage of readily available freebies, such as brushes1, pattern and shapes2. With the wide variety and (often) high quality of resources available, whatever you need or are looking for is in most cases already available somewhere. The only problem is that the vast quantity of freebies can make it difficult to track down what you need. Hopefully this collection of excellent Photoshop pattern will help. [Content Care Nov/27/2016]

You may want to take a look at the following related posts:

The resources featured here are all available as downloads in PAT format, which can be placed in Photoshop. In addition to this format, there is also a number of quality resources online for creating or using patterns in other formats that can be used by any program, not just Photoshop. As with any type of freebie, always be sure to check the license or requirements set by the creator.
