Make a Seamless Wood Floor Pattern in Photoshop


This tutorial demonstrates an easy way to create a seamlessly tiling wood floor pattern out of a photo of wood grain. The resulting pattern can be used as a background for print or web. There are many resources available for free wood grain textures, and this process will produce nice results with many different wood photos. I found the one I’m using here on Deviant Art courtesy of SweetSoulSister.

Final Image

The result of this tutorial will be an image that can be used as a tiling pattern that resembles a hard wood floor.


Step 1


Step 2

Open the texture in Photoshop and do any prep work. Don’t forget to unlock the layer by double clicking it and clicking “OK”.


In this case, I made a small adjustment to the Levels (Image > Adjustments > Levels or ⌘+L). This makes the texture a bit darker and gives it a deeper red.


Step02Step 3

Use the Rectangular Marquee Tool to select the first plank. Use the Info Palette to make sure the proportions are nice round numbers. This example uses planks that are 100 x 800 pixels. I always like to make patterns as large as possible so that they can be used for both print and the web by scaling it down later to suite your needs.


Step 4

Make a second Photoshop document 600 x 1600px at 72 dpi, and pick a Black background.


Step 5

Step02bWith the Ruler visible (⌘+R), make a grid by dragging guides out while holding down the shift key.

Dragging from the Side, place a guide at every 100px.

Dragging from the Top, place a guide at every 400px.


Step 6

Go back to the original photo and Copy (⌘+C) your selection, then Paste (⌘+P) that selection into the grid you just created.


Make sure “Snap to Guides” is selected and position the plank in the top left.


Step 7

On the original, pick a new plank by moving the selection to a new spot on the photo. With the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M), and the “New Selection” box selected, just move the cursor over the selection and drag it to a new spot.


Step03Step 8

Copy the new plank and Paste it directly below the first one in the grid document.


Step 9

In the wood grain photo, move the selection again to pick a New Plank. This time, position it in the second column so that only the bottom half is showing.


Make a copy of this plank by dragging the layer down to the New Layer icon at the bottom of the Layers Palette. (Or Right Click/Control Click and select “Duplicate Layer”).


Drag the copy straight down while holding the Shift button so that only the top half of the plank is showing.


You probably can guess what’s next. Grab another plank to put in between them.


Step 10

Continue to move the selection and fill in the grid with new planks using the process described in Steps 6-9. Every other column needs to use the same plank for the top half and bottom half! You can toggle the guides on and off by pressing command and semicolon ( ⌘ + ).

Image Ready to DreamWeaver Question...

by sfchick7

Hi there,
I am working on a website. I designed the layout in Photoshop, sliced it up in Image Ready and then brought the slices and html into Dreamweaver.
So, I have a background pattern that I want to tile. So, I in Photoshop/Image Ready, I deleted the background and my text and images are placed with no background. I sliced up everything in Image Ready and planned to add the tiling background in DreamWeaver..But there was a PROBLEM..
When I brought in the slices from Image Ready, it somehow added a white background to every image. So it covers up the tiling pattern I set as a background in DW

What color should i paint my kitchen?

My kitchen is definitely on the larger side, the cabinets are wood and they are stained a dark brown, the washer and the dryer are also in the kitchen. the kitchen right now is kind of like and antique white the flooring is linoleum a white and beige pattern. i was thinking of painting it a pure white to brighten it up and that way i can change the colors of the place mats and center pieces whenever i feel like it and not have to worry if they clash with the walls

When re-decorating home, bedroom or any other room, always try to choose colors according to feng shui. in this case you will activate powers of 5 elements (water, earth, metal, wood and fire) and support all your lucky "areas" - this will attract love, romance, wealth, money, prosperity, luck etc etc

Digitally colouring a background on Gimp?

Yeah i'm a big nerd. Anybody else draw fan art for One Piece here? Anyways, i'm finally getting off my lazy butt and trying to use photoshop. To be more specific, "gimp." The background has a wooden curved bench, with a metal floor. The metal floor has large screws that are perfectly smoothed over. There's a little porthole where you can climb up into the room from, and I already coloured that.. The problem i'm having is the wood. The wood has almost no patterns in it, it's just two perfectly flat surfaces. I could just colour it, and shade it appropriately to the window in the top left…

You have to clone the texture you want into the framework of the seat then alter the shading for the light effect from the window
Too long to explain so here is an excellent explanation
will probably find a lot more useful ideas from that website.
