Let your imagination free and generate stunning graphical patterns
To achieve the desired result you have to define a series of steps that describe the pattern. All used elements or operations are represented by a floating panel called a node that can be easily linked to other nodes.
All nodes can be freely and effortlessly mixed and connected according to your preferences, a fact that offers a flexible, as well as powerful pattern generation tool.
With the help of various sliders, PatterNodes allows you to quickly change any aspect of the selected element, from its color, scaling, spacing, rotation or repetition count.
Helps you preview your changes and the resulting pattern in real time
Moreover, PatterNodes enables you to accurately tweak and adjust settings to obtain a new result. As follows, the generated pattern can be easily previewed in the bottom preview panel.
All changes and modifications are updated in real time and, as a result, you can take advantage of instant feedback of what the final image will look like.
Although, PatterNodes is designed mainly for pattern creation, you can easily use PatterNodes for any type of repeating graphic. In order to assist you throughout the pattern creation process, PatterNodes offers you numerous nodes capable to automatically perform laborious tasks such as repeating elements at the tile edges for a seamless pattern or randomizing different aspects, like position, rotation or the color of the elements in a pattern for a more original look.
Export your work to EPS, PDF, JPEG, TIFF or PNG files
When you are happy with the generated pattern, you can easily copy the pattern tile into any given graphics or illustration application or export it as a vector graphics or bitmap image file.
On the whole, PatterNodes is a handy and easy-to-use application that helps you create unique patterns, illustrations and gradients with a couple of mouse clicks.

- New features:
- Added a new separate preview window mode as an alternative to the preview in the bottom part of the document window. Activated by a new button in the bottom right, or via the Window menu item. Great for multi-monitor setups and complex patterns!
- Added a new "Export again" item to the File menu, this lets you quickly export the pattern again to the same format and file previously used, skipping the save dialogue. This can be very useful when you work with linked files, for example in web development.
- Improved the Array Split node to support more different ratios and added an Offset parameter that shifts the split counter.
