The Silhouette Studio® Designer Edition unlocks the ability to add your own images and patterns to use with the Fill Pattern feature.
This is different from simply opening an image into the program and then creating cut lines around the desired pattern. The Fill Pattern options allow users to mirror patterns, rotate, scale, pan the pattern around within the filled image, and adjust the pattern's level of transparency. These advanced features for manipulating patterns can be found in the Advanced Options in the Fill Pattern panel.
To add your own patterns with the Designer Edition, you may do the following:
Again, this ability to use imported images as fill patterns is only available when running the Designer Edition version. It also only applies to raster type images (such as JPG, BMP, and PNG files).
