How do you creat your own pattern overlays in photoshop?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


regards,

pattern overlay?

Do you mean how do you create seamless tiles that you can repeat into a pattern?

to be more specific:

go to layer style options (double click your layer)

under this menu you will find the option for pattern overlays.

This is where I am stuck.

CG: I think that creating the seamless tile is the same thing. I’m running into trouble loading the tile that I have created. When I go to load my texture it will only open PAT files, and I don’t seem to have this file option under my save as file options.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Create a selection. Edit → Create Pattern.

This will automatically create the .pat file and will make it available to that layer style.

But that won’t make the pattern seamless. For that you need to use the offset filter with wraparound and use the rubber stamp tool to smooth out any hard edges.

Thank you so much,

regards,
