Hey,

 

I want to place a very specific amount of dots in an area that I defnied. This is for my scientific research. The bigest amount would be 515 and the lowest 2. Is there a way to achieve this? I don't wanna place 515 individual dots.

 

cheers.

You'll probably have more luck using MathLab and creating a custom plot algorithm. Implementing such stuff with scripts in PS would be even more complicated. Anyway, you would need to be more specific what the requirements are. Just saying "I want to draw X points" is not that useful. How would the area be defined? Square? Circle? Other shape? How need the points be distributed? What colors? All those details matter...

How would the dots be distributed?  Could it be random?  Could it be in a specific pattern?  The latter would be easier to count using some sort of array process.   Would the dots need to be the same size? Can they all be on the same layer?

 

I suspect this might be best done using a script, so we'll tag our @Stephen_A_Marsh who might have some ideas.

No no, I mean, I took a different approach instead of using dots.
