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.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Symmetry?.


Symmetry... look for Krita or other painting app that have symmetry. I'm pretty sure there is a lot of open source source code that can show you how to do it and add something similar, its been years I want this in photoshop -,- sad...

Canvas wrap and Live symmetry would be a really stunning addition. Astute Graphics has done it for Illustrator. Any chance of it it in Photoshop, 2015 release?

It won't. Literally every drawing app has these functions except for Photoshop. Adobe doesn't understand how professionals use their tools.

Well, it has been 3 years since we have been all talking about this. The users don't seem to have much of a voice.

You also might want to read the responses on the first page of this request topic.

Yeah. It's the same ol thing. I'm sorry. You won't get 50,000 users coming on here asking for features. You know why? They have a life and professional jobs, and Adobe is notorious for poor service and implementing useless features. This is why companys like Astute graphics exist, to make actual useful tools that Adobe cannot design.

Adobe is ignoring the ask of the Video Game industry and the Movie Industry who produce graphics on a daily basis using all of the Adobe apps and 3d apps at once. This is where Adobe workflows and tools fail. This forum is exhausting and already wasted my time. You guys don't care.

Nobody is ignoring requests. We are trying to get more information in order to justify this to our management. But we do have a lot of requests from many different customer segments, plus all the changes forced on us by OS changes (high DPI, OS bugs, new APIs) and new hardware.

Just because you didn't get your favorite feature in a particular release does not mean the request has been ignored, it just means we haven't gotten to it yet. If we get more requests for a feature, that moves it higher in the priority list and makes it more likely to happen sooner.

Chris Cox you have been very arrogant, rude and unwelcoming in a lot of your responses to user requests.

It seems like you are a bottleneck for feature requests, as you smash a lot of very profound requests by simply not understanding what the users mean/want.
For me this becomes specially appearent in the context of digital painting/illustration.
You don't seem to understand what users from this group need and just piss them off.

We as users feel very mistreated by your way of communicating and your arrogant attiitude.

I am a Photoshop user and I am in contrast grateful to Mr.Cox for contributing on this and other Fora and actually communicating with Photoshop users.
And I have not noticed arrogance in his posts so much as rather a commendable restraint.

Having a toggle for texture tiling mode for layers and groups would be awesome! This is a feature I've wanted for a long time (for creating textures to use in 3D applications, matte paintings in Photoshop, and visual effects work in After Effects). There are so many uses for this and would be one more great reason for people to almost exclusively use Photoshop as their 2D image manipulation/creation software.

I just started using Krita for digital painting and they have a Wrap Around Mode. That is exactly what Photoshop needs.

Give up man. You are beating a dead horse. They don't care and are full of excuses. I actually think it is their code, they aren't able to do it because of the way it was written. Something like this is very simple, especially since every drawing app on the planet has this feature except for Photoshop.

I don't like to grumble. Everyone here from Adobe has been either:

1. rude
2. acting like a know-it-all
3. or full of excuses, with no real answers for the users.

Daniel, feel fee to reply to my emails. People have been asking for these simple features for years—literally. Photoshop doesn't seem to listen to professional 3d visual effects/video game artists, illustrators or concept artists.

Frederic, if you want better drawing tools, use a better drawing program like Sketchbook pro. They are really nice, responsive and the feel/feedback is a much better experience.

Companies are not allowed to specify what will be available or time frames, sorry. But I have been having a lot of conversations on this subject.

1 > Please feel free to contact me with an example of a rude employee/response. So that I may slap a wrist :)
2 > But we do know it all with regards to this product and all that entails :)
3 > I dont recall ever giving you or anyone an excuse on this matter (or others) I try to tell you straight when possible.

I have replied to your emails.

I have never discouraged others form trying other products, I still believe in Photoshop as my favorite tool despite the others on the market. And I have used them all.

Oh we listen, plenty of examples of listening and doing. We converse *continually* with a variety of creatives that provide valuable feedback on this subject and many things.

Have a nice day

>>Some of us are professional artists working and do not have time for finding these, or bothering with these forums.

2 > But we do know it all with regards to this product and all that entails :)

>> Maybe with the product, but not with the suite or needs of professionals, hence 3d even being a thought in Photoshop.

3 > I dont recall ever giving you or anyone an excuse on this matter (or others) I try to tell you straight when possible.

>> No, I just got an earful of the Adobe soapbox. Photoshop might be your favorite, but hardly represents the professional aspects of individual creative industries.

Has anyone seen Affinity? Give them a try. Their products are simple, clean and fast, not to mention cheap. They are up and coming... https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/
