In this video tutorial, you will learn how to create seamless textures in Photoshop.
We will use the Clouds Filter to generate the texture. But after learning the technique taught in this tutorial, you should be able to use any other image that you like.
When creating a repeating tile texture from the same image you need to make sure that you remove the seam. Otherwise, you will see a hard edge where the sides of each image meet.
To remove those seams or edges, you can use the Offset filter. This filter makes allows you to move the edges to a different part of the image so that you can see them better, and edit them if you need to.
Using the Offset Filter to Create Seamless Textures in Photoshop
This tutorial will focus on the Offset filter to create seamless textures in Photoshop will allow you to move the contents of an image horizontally or vertically and wrap around the other side.
This lets you see the seam of the texture, and you can use any of Photoshop’s editing tools to remove it.
Seamless Clouds Filter in Photoshop
This video tutorial also teaches you how to create seamless textures using the clouds filter.
You will also learn a little-known trick that takes advantage of the Clouds Filter’s algorithm to quickly generate seamless repeatable patterns by using the right document sizes.
There is a little-known trick in Photoshop that allows you to create seamless textures with the clouds filter by taking advantage of the Clouds Filter’s algorithm.
If you create a document that uses height and widths that are to the power of 2, then Photoshop will always generate seamless repeatable patterns when you apply the Clouds Filter.
The width and height do not need to be the same. But both the width and height need to be numbers to the power of 2.
For example, 2, 4, 8, 16, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, and so on.
