Patterns are one of my favourite Photoshop features. Easily combine them with text, vector objects, layer styles and more to add seamless textures to your work.
Photoshop patterns are a great way to add non-destructive textures to your layers. This set of 22 free halftone dot patterns make adding subtle retro background patterns and textures to your work quick, easy and fun.
With just a few of these halftone dot patterns combined together and a touch of creativity, you can quickly and easily add interesting effects to your work (see the DesignerCandies preview below).
More Useful Patterns for Photoshop:
- Art Deco Patterns
- Animal Print Patterns
- Studded Leather Patterns
- Bamboo Patterns
- Free Grass Patterns
Unlike brushes (which are pretty inflexible once applied), patterns can fill any amount of space or shape and seamlessly repeat themselves to create subtle background texturing. Add them to text, backgrounds, vector shapes and more.
As the dots are on transparent backgrounds you can utilise blend modes to further enhance the effect of the patterns.
To change the colour of the dots you will need to rasterise the pattern and add a colour overlay, either with a layer style colour overlay or by creating a clipping mask with a solid fill colour adjustment layer.
As well as the clean dotted patterns included in this pack, we've also thrown in a couple of grimy / distressed versions that are brilliant for adding a degraded and worn look to your work.
Whether you're a web designer, print designer, illustrator or photographer I am positive you can put this pack to good use – and I'd love to see what you produce, so maybe post some images in the comments?
Included in the download is a set of 22 halftone dot patterns for Adobe Photoshop. The file format is .PAT and can be loaded into Photoshop using either the Preset Manager, double clicking the .PAT file or by inserting into the patterns folder.
As always, this freebie is not restricted by license and is instead Uncopyrighted.

You’re more than welcome @merrypranxter:disqus! I never imagined this little pattern would be so popular 🙂
There are halftone GRADIENTS all over the durn web in every shape & form…. but I always need just a “flat” one for screenprints and they are SO hard to find. And now I have a pattern pack with all of them I could need stored on my harddrive in several places highlighted in all the colors. So i never have to go on that search again. Really- thank you so much. /drama

Hi, are designs still available? I cannot download them and they haven´t been sent to me after joining your newsletter and liking you on Facebook.
Yep, be sure to check your spam / promotions folder / email firewall. All download links are sent via email.
I tried to download the file but there’s a banner that tells me to subscribe again and again. I’ve already tried 4 times but am unable to do anything about it.
