Saving Patterns in Photoshop

Since people were interested in my puffy felt pattern, I thought I would write up how to save an existing set of layer styles.  I converted the seamless Christmas glitter tiles into patterns and I am using them as the example.

1.  Go to the Preset Manager under Edit > Preset Manager.

2.  In the Preset Type drop down menu, choose Patterns.

3.  Select the patterns you want to save by clicking on the first one, pressing Shift, then holding the Shift key down and selecting the last pattern to choose all the patterns next to each other.  Or,  press Ctrl, hold it and select individual patterns.  Then select Save Set.

4.  A dialog will appear that will ask you to give the pattern set a name.  Also pick a location for saving.  I save my patterns in My Documents > Adobe > Patterns.

Here are the Christmas Glitters as a pattern file. I don't know how that blue glitter snuck in there.
