    Repeatable pattern

    Hi All, I need this pattern to perfectly repeat over the length of my straight object. No matter how many times I crop it, I can't get to repeat perfectly. I have Pixelmatr, but don't know how this is done. Can someone show me an easy way to do this? Thanks.

ID:	129865 It is fairly straight forward your image just needs to have an edge where it starts again. This should work.

    The crop is made at the center of each X so where on X ends < the other on the tiled image starts > so you get >< or <> . This works in the the horizontal and Vertical.

    And if you want more image to better get an idea of what you are looking at here is a larger crop.

    My God it's that easy? Thanks everyone. Just not cropping it right. Now I get it!

    Maybe should lay off the brass and vacuum tube art for a while, it's clouding your brain! All those fumes...

    I don't know if you've come across this, but with cylindrical and spherical mapping, you can adjust the tiling itself rather than the map size.

    Don't feel dumb, I just learned a decade old feature yesterday...

    As much as I use Lightwave and photoshop I think I only use or know about 10% - like my brain.

    Here's a tip: TILE catalogs have a lot of patterns that tessellate cleanly without looking like simple squares.
    They only call it 'class warfare' when we fight back.

    You Know I had tried that, and it adjusted the tiling alright, but i could never get rid of the mismatch. It just seemed to move it to another spot.
