HOW TO QUICKLY COMBINE PATTERN + PALETTE

For example let's combine this palette and pattern below
Man_Brigade New_Nikes

First of all you need to have your browser's address bar visible. (also called location bar or URL bar ) How? Each browser is a little different so you'll need to Google it with the name of your browser.


On the pattern page, below the pattern, click on 'create pattern' - You'll get the following URL - notice the patternID at the end
www.colourlovers.com/patterns/add?patternDefinitionID=23941
real example


On the palette page, click on 'create pattern' - You'll get the following URL with all the colors are listed in HEX code
www.colourlovers.com/patterns/add? colors=06070B,136982,6D6E8D,662126,484B78&pID=1273152
All on one line - real example


To combine them, all you have to do is add up the 2 endings, link them with a '&' like in the example just below
www.colourlovers.com/patterns/add? colors=06070B,136982,6D6E8D,662126,484B78&pID=1273152 &patternDefinitionID=23941
All on one line - example

Screenshot - Click to view in big
Click image to view in big

Once you have the palette code and pattern code in the address bar like in the above screenshot, press the keyboard [ENTER] key or the 'Go' button by the address bar to validate.

IN SHORT

Add up the patternID string &patternDefinitionID=23941 (that you went to fetch earlier) to the end of the create palette URL


Voilà! Simple! =)



Quick Palette Creation:
This technic also enables to create palettes directly typing the hexcodes - check out this URL
Could be useful if you have the hexcodes and want to quickly create a palette.



Thanks so much!I've been wondering how and wanting to do this but didn't even know what question to ask in regards to same. :) Ketisse directed me to this group, and I am certainly grateful she did!
Thank you so much for posting this! I'm new at COLOURlovers and just recently started coloring patterns. This makes it so much easier!
Really appreciate the clear explanation. Thank you and thanks to manasijoshi for sharing a link to this page.
Super thanks- I kept thinking "there has to be a way!" and now you've shown it. :)
I forgot how to do this. Glad it was archived!!! :-)
Thanks! I wondered for a while about how to do this until I finally found the tutorial. I also turned this method into a bookmarklet (P&P; see my profile for more info) to make it even easier.
Great post
