Avoid the edges : seamsThe key thing for the creation of a seamless tile is that you avoid adding any strokes / dabs to the seams of an image.


I say avoid the edges, but it is all ok if you do go over the edges if the opposite sides match. Sadly there is no wrapping around paint feature in PS (unlike the define command in Painter or seamless tile mode in PaintStorm Studio).

Offset filter to shift design :

offsetYou can create basic designs in seconds without the need of the offset filter but the offset filter does make it even easier to create more complex as well as colorful designs in PS.


You can find the filter in the other section of PS.


Use the wrap around and set the horizontal and vertical to 50% and -50% (though this doesn't really matter but more of a convention to place the artwork edges in the center)


You can repeat apply the filter multiple times


Define tile : defineOnce you have created your tile, you can then use the define command found in the edit menu
