You can definitely use both raster and vector programs to create your pattern repeats. You can successfully sell artwork to clients in both programs. In some cases, you might have a client has a particular preference for one program over the other, but as a generalization, you can sell designs in either programs. So don’t let that deter you. I know that a lot of people feel that they have to create their designs in illustrator, but that’s not true so don’t let that limiting belief stop you from creating your artwork in Photoshop if you’d prefer to do so.
It’s better to ask yourself, which program will suit the particular artwork that you’re creating.

3 Comments on Vector versus raster for your pattern designs
Absolutely spot on; regards scale that become overly aggregated pixels. I’m loving your blog! I’m very proud of you Rachelle! Thank you for all that you do…..I even don’t mind the emails that you send me because you’re not “pushy”. I’ve been on a maNIC creativity streak HOWEVER I am neglecting my office work! Paperwork ugh.
Lotsa love 🤩
I’m so glad to hear that you’re enjoying the blog 🙂

I am excited to experiment with Procreate, but I need to upgrade/update my iPad. There’s always something…
