I've got a website where the background needs to be this aged paper / leather-like texture, but I was hoping to make it some sort of repeating pattern. Is there some photoshop trick I can use to do this. I'm really not supposed to post this, but I'm going to to show you what the background looks like:

See the texture of the background? How could I make that a repeating background? :?

I've wondered this for some time now, but have never asked because I figured if I really wanted to know I could find a tutorial, but I searched today and came up with only simple pixel-pattern tutorials.

You want to make like a 800X600 background? I am not following. What exactly will be in the background?

Use the offset filter in photoshop to shift the image up/down left/right to see the seams. Then you just need to fix the seam so you a can't see it (blur/smudge, clone stamp/healing brush).

Not all patterns can be properly tiled, and just because you can't see the seam, doesn't mean you cant see the repeating pattern...

EDIT: Worked like a charm. Thanks! :wink:
