Free Transparency Halftone Patterns for Photoshop

With transparency seriously trending in web design right now, I thought I would put together a set of patterns for different strengths of transparency to place over images. They are all on transparent backgrounds, so you can either use the Fill Tool to place the pattern directly on the image layer, or create a new layer and fill it will the pattern – that way you can adjust the opacity and even overlay with a color if you don’t want black.

Transparency Patterns

Here are what some of them look like over an image – however, please remember that these images have been reduced in size. The top center segment shows the original image with no transparency.

Jigsaw Puzzle Pattern for Photoshop

I have created this free pattern for Photoshop that will apply a jigsaw puzzle effect over any image. It is easily re-sizeable.

To use the pattern:

  • Create a new layer and fill it with any colour – then reduce the fill to 0%.
  • In the blending options, select Pattern Fill and fill your image with this jigsaw pattern. Now you can adjust the size as required.
  • Reduce the layer opacity slightly (your own choice here), then create a new, empty layer and merge this and the pattern filled layer together.
  • Blending options again – Bevel – Emboss – set as required.
  • Create another new, empty layer and once again merge these 2 layers.
  • Set this layer to Overlay. You will probably need to duplicate this layer at least once to achieve your required result.

Enjoy!

Photoshop Pattern: Tulip & Willow

This unfinished textile design created by William Morris in 1873 is still as inspirational today as when it was first drawn. I have spent many hours, much use of the Clone Stamp and copying and pasting to get this pattern to repeat seamlessly. The lines that are visible on it are on the original image and not due to my bad joining!

It is a fantastic design and I thought it deserved to be singled out to convert into a Photoshop pattern file. I hope you enjoy using it!
