2.b. What can you do with included pattern images

There are 2 types of pattern images:
- Transparant pattern images, for example: Birthday1.png, Cubes1.png, Spacy1.png
- White background images, for example: Vintage1.png

Both types need a little different approach.
If you make use of the pattern images with a white background you need to play with the 'Render' method in the 'Opacity' tab, for example: 'darker' or 'lighter'.

In both case if you want to repeat the image on the whole surface of the photo, do not forget to check the checkbox: 'Pattern'(!)

Pattern images can be used to protect and cover the whole surface of your photo with a - possibly subtle transparant - structure.
Pattern images can also be used to prepare your picture as a background image, for whatever purpose.
