When you flood fill an image and scale up the pattern, why is it so distorted as you make it bigger?

This should only be a problem for welded images. We are looking into modifying how the pattern fills work for welded images.

I also noticed how the pattern gets distorted. It happens whether I am welding an image or not.

I had this happen today when I flood filled a 4 by 9 inches rectangle? I was not
welding or anything, just a rectangle from the George cartridge. The print was not very clear
it looked a bit blurred.

The pattern does start to get a pixelated look if I use "scale pattern" to zoom in on the pattern too close. Is that possibly what happened for you? Which pattern are you using?

In some programs I've worked in over the years, I have found there are some things that only work at the end of everything else you're doing. It may be what is happening in this case; after you use your "FILL", you may not be allowed to CHANGE the other properties in what you're working on.

So, you might have to make sure you have everything exactly the way you want it BEFORE you use the "FILL" option.

Maybe mallory would like to speak to this.

I know what you mean. In this particular situation, I have not personally noticed any difference if I fill first or last.

I added my "box" or other item to my mat, flood filled with pattern and then played with the scale. It is almost like the resolution of the pattern is too low and it gets distorted when you enlarge it. Kind of like when you take a picture on your phone and try to make it bigger in photoshop.

Is there a way to fix that?
