The backgrounds of websites usually are textured with a pattern that is essentially a repetition of a simple image. This simple repetition can attribute lesser page loading times. Many site designers try to work out ways in which these patterns can be created to look visually appealing yet use only simple images. Their job has now been made much easier with an online tool which I have recently discovered.
Anybody who wants patterns created out of specific image [or images (plural)] can do so in a few simple steps using Repper.
Repper is a web application that comes in free and paid packages. “Lite” is what the free package has been named. You can start using it by clicking on the “Start Tool” button next to Lite’s link.
Once you click on that link you will be taken to a brilliantly textured webpage which will outline how we can create patterns using Repper Lite.
The first step is to select an image from our computer or use one of the samples provided at Lite.
The second step lets us easily modify the pattern which we can see in the background of the webpage.
To change the pattern we move the box in the middle of the image and choose from one of the three options at the bottom.
Before making any changes to these settings I was seeing this pattern:
Just by moving that box I was able to create a different pattern, like this:
Our final step is to save our pattern on by downloading it on our computer or share it by obtaining a URL for it or sharing it on our social media accounts.
Repper Lite is a wonderful free tool for easy pattern creation that will help all site designers and designing enthusiasts. People who are looking for more advanced features will find Repper’s paid service more suitable.
Give Repper a try and let us know what you think.
