Frequently Asked Questions

How to install Illustrator and/or Photoshop Patterns?

- Illustrator: Patterns are .AI or .ASE Swatches

Go to Window > Swatch Libraries > Other Library 

Locate the Illustrator pattern swatch file ending in .ai or .ase, then click open. 

Your swatches will show up as a separate Swatch Panel. 

Alternately, you can open the .AI file as a normal Illustrator file. The file might look blank, but the swatches will appear in your Swatches Panel (Window > Swatches.)

- Photoshop: Patterns are .PAT files

Go to Edit > Preset > Preset Manager… then select the Patterns preset type. 

Click Load… then locate the file ending in .pat, and click open. 

Your patterns will be available to use in Layer > Layer Styles > Pattern Overlay.

How to Unzip files?

On Windows:

1. Locate the zipped folder that you want to unzip (extract) files or folders from.

2. Do one of the following:

- To unzip a single file or folder, open the zipped folder, then drag the file or folder from the zipped folder to a new location.

- To unzip all the contents of the zipped folder, press and hold (or right-click) the folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

On Mac:

There’s nothing to do when you need to unzip a zipped file except double-click on it. The Archive Utility that you use to zip files unzips them for you as well. So, you don’t need a third-party app and you don’t need to open the Archive Utility because it handles those compressed files for you automatically.

Once you double-click to unzip a file, a folder will pop up in the same spot. Open the folder and there are the compressed files.

What software do I need?

ZIP: WINZIP is needed to extract the files from the zip folder.
