MAKING A SEAMLESS BACKGROUND

This is an effect that will take away any seams in a background so that it will flow without breaks.
Play with the settings to find ones you like and the effect you want.

In PSP open your tube you want to use as your background image.
Open a new canvas.
Click on Layers, add new raster layer.
Pick a color from your tube to use as the background color.
Click on your fill tool and fill that raster with the color. Add a texture if you want. ( See texture tut for this process)
Copy and paste your tube onto your new canvas.
Go to layers, merge, merge flat.

Now we are going to make the seamless tile.
Go to effects, image effects, seamless tile.
Photobucket
Here are the settings I used.
Photobucket
To view, check the box on preview and it will show you the tiling before you click ok.
Photobucket
If you like it, click ok.
Photobucket
Your finished. Save as a jpeg.
If you would prefer to use a graphic instead of a tube for your tile, then follow the same steps using effects, image effects, seamless tile.
Photobucket
And your seamless is finished, save as a jpeg.
