This example, from the homepage, has isohedral type IH61. Only a single edge of the square needs to be deformed. The other 3 edges are rotations of the base edge.
You can download the project file here: bird_ih61.tis . The following zip file contains the project file and the 4 image files: bird_ih61.zip . Note that you must replace the image file names at menu option Tessellation / Load Multi Background by the locations of the unpacked images.
This example of isohedral type IH7 shows a tessellation with photographic imagery. The base tile is a non-regular hexagon with 3 pairs of adjacent sides, which have rotational symmetry with a rotation angle between them of 120 degrees.
You can download the project file and the 3 image files: lion_ih7.zip . Note that you must replace the image file names at menu option Tessellation / Load Multi Background by the file locations of the unzipped images.
These tessellations are examples of the Four-armed-mirror spiral, made with 1 background image, and with 2 background images.
You can download the project file and the image files: nose_spm1.zip, nose_spm23.zip. Note that you must replace the image file names at menu option Tessellation / Load (Multi) Background by the file locations of the unzipped images.
At day 1 of the release of Tissellator Michael
J. Maloney installed the program, completed the
registration, mastered the program, and created a multi background

|A spiral of similar tiles, made from deformed hexagons obeying isohedral type IH1. This picture has been constructed using the overlay technique in Tissellator: load the dog as background image, then fit the outline to the dog’s face, and generate the fractal.|
| This circle tessellation has
isohedral type IH3. Thanks to the glide reflection the mandarin fish
“swim” in clockwise direction and counter-clockwise direction. The 4
images show the tessellation rendered with 1 tile, 2 tiles, 3 tiles
and 4 tiles. The color scheme feature in Tissellator allows the
designer to choose the wanted color pattern of images. Note that the
number of images is not limited to four, but unlimited.
The color scheme for the image of 2 tiles is 0 0 0 0 1 1, for 3 tiles it is 0 1 2 0 2 2, and for 4 tiles it is 0 1 1 0 2 2 .

|The black and white fish in M.C.
Escher’s artwork no 73
have been reworked in four colors. The tessellation of isohedral
type 41 has been transformed into a multi spiral with 3 arms.

|This image has been constructed in several steps. A tessellation of 4 fish has been transformed with Tissellator's Poly Spiral transformation. (In such a transformation the points in the complex plane are relocated with a tangent function.) The result is made repetitive and again transformed with the Poly Spiral transformation.|
