explain: Do you have one image and or Static images(they will not be changing) or dynamic image...If dynamic then that means not texture. –  Muhammad Umer Apr 24 '13 at 3:29
    
I assume you want images to inside this image to tile, like by using css...or do you want the whole image as you said. –  Muhammad Umer Apr 24 '13 at 3:30

I was going to say "you can't", but apparently it is possible:

I'd rather not do all of that and come up with something else.

Hi Steve! Do you think you could add some info from the link to your answer? Links can disappear, so it's better to have the instructions in here :) –  Yisela Apr 25 '13 at 20:37

You can use Illustrator Pattern Maker.

Here is the demonstration of what I made quickly, I could have adjusted it but I guess it gets the point across:

You can see the detailed instructions in this Youtube video.

This is why it's important to know what other programs can do. For example, there are things that only Corel draw can do which Photoshop and illustrator can't, even though they look very basic.
