This month
New effect

Circular metamorphosis

The Metamorphosis effect is our most popular, so we've extended it with a new form: circular.

It transforms your pattern from the center outward, creating a beautifully balanced, mandala-like result.

New effect

Monotone isn't boring

We can all use a little simplicity in our lives. The new Monotone effect comes with three ways to style your pattern in a single color.

New effect

Recolor with tritone

When Monotone or Duotone aren't enough, Tritone might just be want you're looking for. Choose from the tasty presets or create your own combination.

Bonus feature: Invert the color scheme in one click.

New tiling

Diamond Penrose

Best of both worlds: the intricacy of a Penrose tiling now comes in seamless form as well.

The Penrose is a special kind of tiling called non-periodic. Curious what it means? Learn more.

Nifty feature

A better tiling overview

With so many tilings to choose from, it can be hard to keep an overview.

The tiling selector is now nicely structured, making your favorites easier to find.

New effect

Color editing

Need to tweak the colors of your pattern a bit? You no longer need to head over the Photoshop!

Adjusting colors also helps you get more out of other effects, like boosting Duo Tone.

For Pro members

Extra large exports

Our standard export is up to 5,000 × 5,000 pixels and suits most purposes. But what if you produce large posters, wallpapers or murals?

Pro members can now export patterns up to 35,000 × 35,000 pixels — that's a gigapixel!

Inspiration

Built-in image search

Sharing is part of the internet's DNA. Many people these days are making their artworks available for others to use and remix.

Repper now has built-in image search, powered by Unsplash. This gives you instant access to a million photos to create patterns from, free to use for hobby and commercial projects alike.

February 2020
Nifty feature

Blend sharp edges

The non-seamless tilings have a distinct look. Sometimes that's what you want, but sometimes you'd wish these sharp tilings looks a little... softer and more seamless.

We've now added edge blending to six of edged tilings, and it give them a whole new dimension. Learn more about it in our help article.

Nifty feature

Mirror metamorphosis

Last October, we released the popular metamophoris effect. Now you can mirror the effect horizontally and vertically to create a beautiful look that is simultanously dynamic and balanced.

Technical improvement

Better sampling performance

Changing the sample selection is one of the most common actions in Repper. We have made the selector a whole lot faster, which should especially benefit less powerful computers and tablets.

New tiling

Cross Weave

This tiling is a playful combination of three parts seamlessly woven together. We've designed it ourselves, so it's unlikely you'll find it anywhere else!

December 2019
Support

Help Centre launched

We design our software assuming you don't want to read a manual, but we made one just in case.

The newly launched Help Centre contains an overview of all features in the app, as well as some inspiration on how to make the most of Repper.

November 2019
New tiling

Cross Brick

The classic tilings can get a bit... repetitive. That's why we are always looking for new dynamic tilings.

We've named this one Cross Brick: it's a made up of two different Cross tilings (P4M) and has an half-brick offset to make them seamless.

New tiling

Cross Facade

This tiling combines a Cross (P4M) and a Facade (PMM) pattern into a new seamless pattern.

The Half brick option lets you switch to an alternative cross pattern, making it effectively two tilings in one!

Handy addition

Export snapshots to ZIP

If you have used the Export All Snapshots option before, you may have noticed browsers don't really like downloading many files at once.

From now on, when you export all snapshots at once, they will be downloaded as a single ZIP file. Happy browser, happy pattern designer 😄

October 2019
New effect

Metamorphosis

We are huge fans of our fellow Dutch artist. This new effect is inspired by and named after his famous artwork Metamorphosis.

It opens up a whole new kind of mind-bending patterns for you to explore.

Technical improvement

Better graphics card support

Some graphics cards on Windows were not playing nicely with the modern web technology we're using. With a bit of code magic, we are now supporting those integrated cards as well.

September 2019
New tiling

Tiling with a twist

Cairo is a flexible tiling in the truest sense of the word. You can keep it straight, bend it a little or go full zigzag. With this classic wallpaper look, we're sure you'll find lots of great uses for it.

Improved effect

A more realistic halftone

Once a technical limitation, these days halftone is a stylistic choice that looks great with minimalistic patterns. Through some code wizardry, the effect now looks exactly like the real thing.
