Creating Seamless Textures in Photoshop Tutorial


Creating Seamless Textures in Photoshop TutorialCompatibility:

Photoshop 7, CS-CS6, CC

This tutorial will walk you through how to create a seamless texture in Photoshop. I created the tutorial using Photoshop CS2, but it should work very similarly in all versions. This only works on textures, not patterns. Textures are things like granite, dirt, or bark. A pattern is something like lace, or anything with a design on it.

The image that I’m using for this tutorial comes from Angela Sasser at deviantArt (Thank you, Angela!). You can follow along with the tutorial using the same image that I used, if you’d like. You can, to help you follow along.

1. First off, take a look at the image. Is one side of it considerably darker than the other? In this one, the top right portion is quite a bit darker than the rest, as you can see. This can make it more difficult to achieve that seamless look, so I’m going to trim the image down.

2.I trimmed it down to the lower left portion of the above image, which all looks pretty uniform in color. If you’re not sure how to trim an image, the easiest way is going to be to use the Rectangular Marquee Tool (hit M) to select the part of the image that you want to keep. Then choose Image > Trim.. from the main menu. It should look something like this (but doesn’t need to be exact).

3.The parts of the image that are keeping our sample from being seamless are where the edges meet up, right? So, let’s move those edges so that we can see them better. Yes, we can do that! Photoshop has this wonderful feature for creating seamless textures, called “Offset.”

You’ll find it under the main menu: choose Filter > Other > Offset

Use settings similar to those that you see in my image here. What this is doing is taking the edge of the right side of the image and wrapping it around to the left side (and wrapping the bottom around to the top), effectively moving the previous “edges” into the middle of the image!

4.See those lines where things don’t meet up? That’s where our old edges were. The new edges came from the middle of the image somewhere, so they’re now entirely seamless. All we have to do is fix up those visible ones, and we’re good to go!

In photoshop, keep selecting all the background until you have all of you want to be transparent...Try deleting background and see if the underlying backgroundis already transparent. (If your final image is easy to select, select it directly.). If initially selecting the BACKGROUND, and you need to get a transparent bckgrnd, inverse the selection so the main subject is selected. You may already have a Transparent background (you'll see the checkerboard).
If you don't already have an underlying transparent background, Copy the selected imaged.
