Photoshop: Mirror Paint/Symmetric/Seamless Tile Paint Function

Photoshop could use a interactive Mirror Paint and Seamless edge/border painting function. Painter has had this feature for about 10 years now.

A function in photoshop so when you draw at one side it make geometry on other side to at the same time

How do the dev's think about adding this great functionality:


a dragable guideline, which copies every stroke you do onto the other side, enabling the famous mirror-painting.


To further enhance this you could also use Kaleidoscope painting, where you can set how many segments should be mirrored.


Corel's Painter 12 features this, and it's amazing.


this video explains it pretty well:

Photoshop definitely needs this!

Hey guys, looks like we missed out on getting this feature. Its not in CS6.

only populist features like VIDEO EDITING!? Don't you already have 2 other programs to do that?

Why not split the effects in Photoshop off into a separate app, it can be like what after effects is to Premiere pro, a missing limb.

so, any awnser from the dev's?

is there any hope or possibility that this time we will see this added?

please don't make us have to rely on other programs capable of this until CS7 or later.

There's always a possibility, but for legal reasons we can't say much about unannounced versions of software.

I too requested a similar feature, that would go hand in hand with this request.

More and more people use photoshop for digital painting, and these people need the real-time mirroring like in Alchemy. It is very useful and would make Alchemy superfluous.

Please add a mirror brush (or options for making such a tool). This would be a brush which can be set on an axis point to draw in symmetry from the number of points specified. (This functionality is available in such products as Inkscape and Krita, but not Photoshop.)

mirror painting is useful for character front side design. kaleidoscope painting is useful for pattern design.

Can photoshop do mirror painting and kaleidoscope painting just like painter 12?.

This is the 2nd most popular Photoshop idea!
(behind "Add a Glyphs panel")

Put the lightroom content in another forum.

I agree with this suggestion. Photoshop just has parts of it that need to catch up big time. Good suggestion OP.

Not likely they will ever be implemented, Instead we'll get Dazzleing features that impress photohipsters with 1 click button magic tricks.

Yup. They are too big now. Slow, unable to be flexible.They do not know what to implement, fix or improve– so they ask the community. However, they listen to all of the non-pro monkeys.

Well, some of the features you might have meant may hardly be relevant to professionals but still are impressive achievements programming-wise.
One CS6 feature that annoys me is »Color Theme« – it seems unnecessary to me and has ruined a formerly good Keyboard Shortcut.

It's such a basic and important thing. Seamless backgrounds are back in style and can be found almost everywhere on the web again. I still have to do them manually or use 3rd party software. Come on, Adobe. It ́s such a simple thing to do and I don't really need such a fancy shmancy stuff like the "oil painting" filter which does a really bad job of creating an "oil" painting anyway. Are you trying to appeal to rich hobbyists who want to turn photos of their dogs into "oil" paintings? Leave that to the plugin makers and developers of playful photo editing software with names like "Magix". Web developers would surely love a simple seamless tile creation functionality. If you don't give it PS, at least implement it inside Fireworks. It's incredible that a software like Fireworks doesn't support it.

As a painter, I love Corel Painters new symmetry tool. Even ZBrush offers it inside its painting feature, so why doesn't the grandmother of all image editing software do as well? It would be super useful for things like sketching and it would also be a great addition to the liquify filter when trying to come up with concepts for creatures etc.

How about a "Symmetry Tool"? The user specifies boundaries, horizontal line and center line, then Photoshop aligns all paired shapes (using edges?) therein to perfect symmetry.

For instance, I have one eye visibly lower than the other. The Symmetry Tool would handle the work of aligning the eyes in perfect symmetry.
