    would some one be willing to make this graphic into a seamless tile for me. I keep getting the "to close to edge error" I change it but can't accomplish what I need. Or explain to me what it is I need to do so I can make seamless tiles myself. I tried to follow various tutors but my brain is not functioning....

    Covert it to an object, and duplicate. Move one object to the top half and the other object to the bottom half. This will give you the seam in the middle which you can fix using the clone tool or some other method. Repeat for the sides, you could also just make 4 objects initaially...

    maybe I should have said
    can you post an example of what you want the end result to look like?

    I see your first post... Are you looking to have that as a background?

    Here's an example of what I posted:

    [​IMG]

    The top and bottom edges will meet seamlessy because they already do, you've moved the seam to the middle of the image. To cover the seam crop the source image and place that on the image above, give it a 1 or 2 px soft edge. You can also use the clone tool to cover up the seam:

    [​IMG]

    Seam is gone but that image is way too inconsistent, you're still going to get a pattern.

    Just take it and and make a copy and flip it so the top and bottom match up and group it.
    Then do it again and group it. ete etc etc till you get this.

    The idea hewee is to remove the seam, I don't know what the final use is for but usually for a web page. The user only has to download that single file, the web browser tiles it. anyhow if you use the image I posted you get this:

    [​IMG]

    As I said that image is too inconsistent and you still get a pattern. Cropping it down to a very consistent area would help. If your image appplication has a good background designer you could make it pretty quick.

    That is one thing about making tiles and seamless tiles is no two programs seem to do it the same way.

    http://www.google.com/search?lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=seamless tile

    Seamless Workshop is free.

    Seamless Border 1.1
    http://www.mehdiplugins.com/english/seamlessborder.htm

    Quick Mirror
    http://www.mehdiplugins.com/english/quickmirror.htm
    Guess if you crop out the part you want this could be used but it may not look seamless.

    You even try playing with Projection.

    Sorry guys I got to busy over the weekend. yes the picture is to use as a back round not a full background but a frame. Plus I wanted to learn how to make seamless tiles for the future. PSP7 and I have PSP9. Thecoalman sample is pretty good. Seams are barely visible and makes the background less busy... I can't produce a bigger picture because because the actual picture is no wider then what we already have.
