  1. Begin by opening the image file you wish to work with.
  2. Next, right click on the “Background” layer and select “Layer from Background” from the context menu that appears. You can name this layer if you wish.
  3. Next, select the crop tool from the tool bar on the left. In the tool options ribbon, type a width and height of 500 px and 500 px.
    • Note: You do not need to have a square texture but the minimum dimension on a side should be no less than 500 px.  You can (and should) pick a larger size if you have a complex texture, but make a note of the size as you will need it in step 5.[Premium Content - Login] [Membership Options]
  4. Now draw a crop region over your image. Ideally, you will select a portion of your image with the most even lighting conditions. Don’t feel as though you need to include the entire image. Hit “Enter” on the keyboard when you are done.
  5. Navigate to Filter>Other>Offset. Make the Horizontal offset 250 pixels to the right and the Vertical 250 pixels down. (If you have an image with a different size, select half of the vertical and horizontal values here). Make sue “Wrap Around” is selected.
  6. Select the Clone Stamp tool from the toolbar at the left. Adjust the size of the brush as necessary using the tool properties ribbon at the top of the page. Make sure your brush is diffuse as this will help to blend the tiles together.[Premium Content - Login] [Membership Options]
  7. Hold down the Alt key on the keyboard and click to define a sampling point. Now click on the line that appeared after step 5. Photoshop will clone pixels from your sampling point and apply them to the region of you click using the brush you have selected.
  8. Repeat this process along each joint created in step 5. When you have finished, you will have an image that will tile seamlessly.
  9. Use File>Save As and select .png or .jpg as the file type. Give the image a memorable, descriptive name.
