If you purchase a Personal License bitmap image on the Patternbank Studio you will receive a flat JPEG image at the size specified on the design page. This file can be opened in packages such as Adobe Photoshop.
Commercial License purchases are offered as layered Adobe Photoshop PSD files or Adobe Illustrator EPS/AI files depending on the file type. The design file info can be found on the info pane on the right-hand side of the design page - file format/design size/repeat info can be found here. The Commercial License may also includes additional assets that the designer has uploaded - i.e. extra colourways, preparatory works and scans.
In the Premium Exclusive License section of the site, if you purchase a bitmap file you will receive the layered Adobe Photoshop document (PSD) which will enable you to customize the design further. When purchasing a Premium Vector file, an EPS file is downloaded which is editable in packages such as Adobe Illustrator.
