With Tess, you can quickly create attractive symmetric planar illustrations. While you draw, Tess will automatically maintain the symmetry group you have chosen; 24 rosette, all 7 frieze, and all 17 wallpaper groups are included. Some prize-winning entries from our annual Tessellation contest are shown on the right. Our Users Gallery shows some other interesting projects that Tess has been involved with.

Tess can seamlessly show your illustrations on a variety of surfaces.

Tess can save illustrations using Tess’ own cross-platform format and can export illustrations using GIF, JIF, PCX, EPS, SVG, and other formats. Print-outs from Tess are crisp since they are sent as vectors to your inkjet or laser printer and are processed at your printer’s resolution.

Tess offers an English, a Spanish, and a Korean interface.
