I pulled a repeating pattern from someone else's PSD. Is there a way to figure out the size of the original pattern? I need to create an image with only one tile.enter image description here

I believe the answer to your question was first posted in a similar thread in regards to exporting patterns by Jin.

enter image description here

In the pattern library popup, when you click on a pattern, the tooltip should tell you what dimension it is. Start a new document with this dimension, and fill using the pattern. You should end up with a non-repeated image of the original pattern size.

Just a note: You must have tool tips on in the preferences to see the tile size pop up. – Scott Feb 22 '13 at 2:07
