Patterns and beyond! - Patterno is a well-crafted piece of software that makes the generation of graphical patterns fast and easy. Out of the box it can generate any lot of variation about the geometric patterns shown in the examples. Each basic type of pattern has user-controlled parameters to alter coloring and arrangement arrangement of the graphical elements. I have used patterno since version 1. The developer is very responsive and pays great attention to user requests. For example, this version can generate patterns from user-generated vector elements and shapes (imported into Patterno as PDFs). This feature alone multiplies the value and uses of this program. While writing this review, there isn't any competitor able to match Patterno's features and price point. Patterno brought me a lot of accolades from peers and clients in projects like these: * Producing backgrounds for websites and software interfaces (e.g. 2D games) * Producing unique, custom masks for spectacular photographic manipulation. * Design unique patterns for fabric printing and stamping. * Wallpaper design for interior decoration. There are a few minor undocumented glitches in the interface, but none is a show stopper at all. Like I said above, the support provided is stands out from the rest. If you are a v1.x user, check the Neatberry blog for instructions on how to upgrade. DB PS: I'm just a satisfied user, in no way affiliated to Neatberry, nor related to the developers of Patterno.
Disappointingly buggy - I gave a one-star rating because bugs prevent the app from being useful for its appointed task. It's difficult to generate a graphic that, when tiled, will display the proper pattern. (Off-by-one errors are typical, where the graphic edges shift by one pixel where they meet, so that you can see the outline of the tile in a background that was supposed to be continuous.) I wanted a background of repeating text shifted 45 degrees. Entering text is problematic: sometimes extra spaces or funky characters will be drawn after the text you entered. I found no way to fix one that goes bad, so I have to add the text, see if it worked, and if not, delete it and try again. Depending on the length of the text string, wide gaps of extra space that you can't control may or may not appear. And even if you held your mouth right while entering the text, you can't rotate the end result, and the program won't adjust the tile size so it will repeat properly. Even if I forget about generating a tile and instead export the full background, sometimes graphics will look good on the screen and yet still exhibit errors in the exported graphic. I find this program exasperatingly difficult to use and get good results despite the fact it's a simple, one-trick pony.
