Hi! 
I would like to create a design by using single elements drawn by myself. I am using Adobe fresco to design the different elements, and than I would like to use them combining them in different ways in order to create different but similar backgrounds on PS. Any suggestions? I found difficulties in using the copy-paste tools on PS and with selecting precisely only the object without any space over the border.
Many thanks!

Please provide at least one of the images. 

Do the images contain Layers and transparency? 

What »border« do you mean – edges of elements in the image or the edges of the image as a whole? 

 

Terminology nitpicking:

What’s not represented in the Toolbar is not called a Tool in Photoshop.

Hi! Many thanks for replying me!

I have this vectorial design drawn on adobe fresco and saved as a psd file. I would like to use only the design (no background) as an element to be replicated in different scales on the same sheet, to compose a pattern. But I don't know how to do (and if it is possibile).
Many thanks!!

I don’t follow. 

»Livello vettoriale« is a Smart Object without a solid background anyway, so what is the problem?

Hi! 

The point is I would like to use the element in a free manner: like a stamp, copying and applying it on another background in multiple sizes, as I prefer. Is it possibile? I don't want an authomatically created fixed patter by PS but I want to copy-paste the object, maintaing only the object (so round shape exactly at the external circunference).

Many thanks for helping!

You can create a custom Shape (see Shape Tool) or a Brush Preset. 

Shape Layers would naturally be preferable for editability.

Hi Nelly,

 

I think you'll find joy with custom brushes.

 

Here's how. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/creating-modifying-brushes.html

You could make it a brush. 

In Brush Settings set some size and angle jitter, or perhaps set size jitter to pen pressure.

Give it scatter jitter and check Both axis.

Ajust spacing as required.

I also gave it foreground/background and hue jitter and set the colours to something bright.

Those settings gave me this:

You could give it some order by stroking a path with that same brush

I'm thinking that some of the Filter Forge effects might work. Drost for instance.
