Photoshop patterns can be defined and then used in many ways in Photoshop. To create a seamless design requires more of a setup of the image. You can define the pattern and then use the pattern in fill layers as well as pattern overlays etc

Tools to create patterns

You can also use applications to create patterns for Photoshop, many are available. One of my favourite applications for patterns is Patterno. You can find the patterno application in the mac store. You can then export the artwork from patterno to Photoshop and then define that pattern in Photoshop. You can also use tools such as the excellent Scopeworks to create unusual patterns for use in Photoshop. There are literally millions of ways of creating patterns. There used to be a pattern maker tool within Photoshop. Sadly, that plugin no longer exists. You can find plugins also to create patterns in Photoshop such as a set available via Artlandia and that is available for Photoshop CC CS6 etc
