Hey thanks. I have always had a hard time with this and you explained it in a way that I understood for once.

Offset filter is awsome!

I couldn't get the guide lines to work... but the offset works like a charm! :love:

Cool that's good. And yeah, the guidelines thing is redundant really with the offset filter, though it's useful to know about as it's the old fashioned way when they only had paper!

Sometimes old fashioned is still the way to go. It all depends on what you're doing really.

Another way you can do this, I believe, is just to go to Filter > Other > Offset, type in each pixel box half the width/height of your image, and choose "Wrap Around" for Undefined Areas.

This is just the thing I needed. I had something I wanted to make into a pattern, but didn't know how to approach it. This certainly simplifies things, now I have a better chance. =P

Thank you for this tut [and its updated easier version]

Congrats on the DD too!

I remember my teachers going over this technique quite rapidly, so I never got to use it, since I didnt remember how to.

Thanks for a great tutorial. The process is well described, words are clear. :thumbsup:

Yes! I studied textile design at college too. We used to cut the paper designs in half and tape them back together
