you can fly!?Project Dogwaffle & PD Pro:

Making Seamless Textures
.... the old fashioned way, with the Shift Transform filter

more tutorials?

Project Dogwaffle has already a tool to make seamless textures. In fact it was updated and improved in the 2.1 update  and some users of Dogwaffle have told us they thinks it's the best tool in its class out there. Check a screenshot here. There is also a tutorial on its use here (Seamless_Plus).

That tool is automatic and works in many cases very well. But for some types of images with very high contrast and little noise it's not always suitable because you can still see a little bit of fade-over from tile to tile along the seams, which can appear blurry at times. Nothing wrong with this implementation, it's just a feature of the technique used, one of its caveats.

So, if you have a need to fix the seams yourself by manually intervening, this tutorial will show you how easy it is in Project Dogwaffle to do exactly that. We're using PD Pro 3.1 in this example.
