I’ve been thinking about to recreate visuals from Rothko’s artworks for a long time. But, I couldn’t have free time for it, because of freelance jobs 🙂 Anyway, finally I’ve coded a part of the application with action script of course.

7- Set your size and align cropping point to top-left corner of the canvas.
8- Here is our single image file grabbed from a pattern
