What button serves as the button that will make a texture seamless in photoshop. Never really figured this out. I have been doing it the hard way (And I am not about to explain what that is).

Hmm. It makes it look OK but... not as good as I would have liked. Does anyone know any good LEGITIMATELY free seamless texture creators that have features like the program texture creator where you can have the brush itself go through to the other side of the texture.

Try this instead, its already part of Photoshop
Filters > Other > Offset

Just set the offset to half the dimensions and then use the Clone Stamp and Spot Healing tools to clean the edges. If needed use the Burn and Dodge tools to level out lights and shadows. When finished use the Unsharp Mask to sharpen the image. (Clone and Spot blur the image a bit)

My experience with tiling software hasn't been to great, I find it much easier just to do it myself. Remember to properly setup the shot before you take and texture photos.

Your referring to if I use actual textures from real life objects and make them seamless I assume. Ok I get you there. I've already done that a little but hopefully his helps to make it easier Thanks. I'll keep all that in mind.

Yea, thanks for typing it out instead of me :) This is how I make tiled textures and patterns in ps. No need for generators that ruin your texture (not all do, but still).

Glad you are getting a hang of it, believe me your better off learning it on your own tiling programs can work well but half the time you end up back in PS fixing the anyway.

i have PSPX2 which already has a tiling generator but it sucks sometimes so i usually spend quite a bit of time tinkering around till i get what i want.

other times i cheat and dl a tiled texture and use it as a base...usually they're not recognizable once im done but it helps with the tiling

Yeah. I was just toying around with it today and already I have a few textures I am quite proud of just by using real textures and making them tiled.

Making my own tiled textures is next on the to do list.
