When developing TaME, the goal was to create a utility to empower users to quickly create professional quality seamless textures and patterns from personal collections of digital photos while at the same time remaining easy and simple to use with a “what you see is what you get” interface. Almost all functions are available with on-screencontrols for point, click and do.     TaME version 3 sports an updated user friendly Interface and new features for WinXP/Vista/7.

Full Description
"Why Buy When You Can Create!" TaME, the Texture and Material Extractor, is the perfect tool for creating original materials, textures and patterns for your 3D figures, clothing and props. With TaME you can use any digital image, albeit photograph or graphic, in the BMP, JPG or PNG formats to quickly and easily create your very own original textures to be applied to all of your projects.  Not sure if this is software you need or want? Then first download and try the Demonstration (DEMO)  version which includes accompanying sample images and the user's guide showing all the available functions to see for yourself.  The Demo is fully functional with watermarking to allow you to use all the different features of TaME to see the type of textures and materials you could get to use in your very own projects.

File Types / Sizes
LOAD/SAVE your image files in any of the following file formats:
  -- BMP (Windows Bitmaps)
  -- JPG (webpage or digital photo jpegs)
  -- PNG (Portable Network Graphics)
  -- GIF (Graphics Interchange Format)
  -- TIF (Tagged Image File)



Source Image Panel
The Source Image panel is where you see the current digital image/photo you are working with as your source file. The original dimensions and filename are displayed just below the image. You can select any area of the loaded image that you want to use as your texture by clicking directly on the Source Image panel display. The area you currently have selected will be surrounded by an animated rectangle (sometimes called selection border) in the Source Image
panel.

Selected Texture Panel
The Selected Texture panel displays the texture region you have selected from your digital image in the Source Image panel. The current size is shown at the top of the panel and the exact location of the selection box is shown at the bottom of the panel. You can change the size by clicking the size buttons located along the left side of the panel or click and drag either of the trackbar sliders located to the right and bottom of the panel. The corresponding selection box in the Source View panel will change size accordingly. Available selection sizes are 8x8 through 256x256 but the desired output size is dependant on the pattern and style selected (see Pattern View and Save Styles panels). For seamless textures, the saved output file will have dimensions twice as large as the source selection along in one or both directions. For instance, if you are extracting a 32x32 area from an image in Mirror mode, it will besaved as a 64x64 seamless texture.


Adjustments Panel
When you first open an image file, the selection area will be in the upper-left corner of the Source Image panel.
Pixel/Block Movement
You can quickly navigate throughout the image or fine-tune your selection with these controls. All adjustments can be made left, right up or down. Course adjustments in the current selection size can be made by clicking the small box-like buttons. Fine adjustments moving pixel-by-pixel can be made by clicking on the narrow-arrow buttons in the desired direction.
Homing Movement
Movements to either the center or corners of the image can be made by simply clicking on the center-box button or the desired corner-tab buttons.



Borders Panel
You can now add a border to your new texture before saving it. For the Standard version, only a simple outline is available.
Outline Sizes
You can set the line thickness using the Thickness trackbar slider. The maximum thickness allowed is dependent on the Selected Texture size used.
(see chart below).

Color Selection
You can also select the color of the border from the color palette using the Color button. The current color selection is shown just below this button.


Pattern View Panel
The Pattern View panel shows you how well your selected/adjusted texture style will look if tiled onto the windows desktop, or bucket/pattern-filled into areas of using another graphics applicationlike PhotoShop or GIMP.
Pattern Modes
There are now 4 Pattern Modes which give the end user more power in designing their own textures; (1) Repeated, (2) Vertical Seamless, (3) Horizontal Seamless, and (4) Mirrored Seamless. When you change modes, the number of styles available will change accordingly. To view each available style in the Pattern Viewer, simply change the style (see Save Styles Panel).

Repeat (Repeated Pattern) is the default mode when starting TaME. This mode simply creates a pattern of repeated copies of the selected texture. This mode is useful for tiling of selected textures that do not need to be seamless.

V-Seam (Vertical Seamless) mode is used to quickly and easily obtain SEAMLESS textures/patterns in the vertical direction (up and down). This mode is useful to create texture sets for projects that are vertically oriented (ie curtains and blinds).

H-Seam (Horizontal Seamless) mode is used to quickly and easily obtain SEAMLESS textures/patterns in the horizontal direction (left and right). This mode is useful to create texture sets for projects that are horizontally oriented (ie bricks and blocks).

Mirror (seamless) mode is used to quickly and easily obtain SEAMLESS textures/patterns. While all three types are necessary depending on the extraction you desire, you will probably find yourself using Mirror most often because of the unlimited variety of seamless extractions you can create with it.

Save Styles Panel
In the Save Styles panel, you can chose which style of pattern you think best represents the image in the Pattern View panel. It doesn’t matter which style you choose, because overall each can be used to recreate the same texture/pattern displayed in the Pattern View panelonly with different center points.

Up to 9 different styles are available for the selected texture above. After selecting a style, click the SAVE button or use File/Save tosave your new texture.
