About the Material Repeat Tool
The Material Repeat tool is a Photoshop plug-in you can use to create a full-tile repeat.
If you have Photoshop, the Material Repeat tool is installed when you install Image Authoring. The Material Repeat tool can help you do the following:
- Adjust for perspective distortion: when the sample was not photographed parallel to the camera's image plane and, as a result, parallel lines in the sample are not parallel in the image.
- Remove gradients caused by uneven lighting: when illumination varies across the image and, as a result, the opposite edges of the image don't match in brightness or saturation.
The Material Repeat tool has its own Zoom In and Zoom Out buttons to control its display. You can change some aspects of the appearance and behavior of the tool.
