    Are you saying the circles need to be the same size or random? Easiest way I can think of is to create a layer in photoshop/gimp that is filled with circles (either find an image on the web or draw a few with the shape tools) then use that as a background, putting the shape you want filled on top. Add transparency layer to the top layer, then select the innards and delete them to reveal your circles...

    You could use a fill pattern but due to it being a repeating pattern it probably wont look very random. Another would be to use / create a custom brush.

    I just made a quick one so you can see.

    Thank you

    It looks as though I will need to do the job manually.

    Basically the logo will be the earth made up of circles representing dna, 4 shades of green and four shades of blue will be used for the sea and land. The circles will also need to slightly overlap each other

    Something like this: http://cdn.physorg.com/newman/gfx/ne...-z-pattern.jpg

    Or am I totally off the beaten track?

    I have no imagination whatsoever when it comes to things like this webman is the imaginative one, I am the 50 year old who has used up all his imagination over the years and just sits in the corner burbling.

    In fact your very lucky to have had a reply from me hehe! Burble! Burble! Burble!
