Along with the new features, Seamless Lite has been given some big love and a smoother, speedier designing experience should be noticeable.
"Save as Shape" Tool
You can now save individual elements using the newly installed “Save as Shape” tool. This will allow you to keep those wonderfully complicated design elements you have been creating for a single Pattern Template. Only NOW, you can re-use those awesome pieces in any number of Pattern Template variation by using, “My Shapes” located in your Shapes Library on Seamless Lite (when you are logged in).
How To Use "Save as Shape"
In Seamless Lite, create a shape from multiple shapes using the preexisting shapes in the Shape Library. Select all layers that make up this custom shape. No need to group these either, when you save the shape as a single element it will automatically group it and give it the name you give your shape upon saving,
Select your shape layers and click, Save as Shape" in the layer tools area.
Preview your shape element, give it a title, description if you want, tags and then Save Shape.
That simple! At this point, shapes cannot be shared with one another (unless you do that privately - it's your choice).
Shape Galleries: A Place to Show Off Your Abilities!
A new gallery for all of your custom shapes, will be added to your profile page the moment you create and save your first shape with the "Save as Shape" tool.
Gallery element for your Shapes (above)
Gallery view of your shapes allows the same filter-view options as other creations on the site.
Each shape has its own information page just like the other creations on CLCOLOURlover.com. Everyone has the ability to LOVE, FAVE and SHARE this shape made by you! Additionally, you have the ability to download the .SVG file, located under the, made "with Seamless Lite" link and DELETE or EDIT the shape profile under the OPTIONS drop-down.
Shapes will also stream on to the homepage of COLOURlovers.com as they are being created. So let's see what you got?!
