I need to create a sort of brick by column perfect fit SEAMLESS PATTERN TILE of this watercolor image of mine for a print.The round part above goes on top in the tiling, vertically speaking and on the sides they fit right next to each other without empty spaces. Horizonatly the column (brick by column) should start a bit on the half of the column above and then again half above...please see reference below. The pattern tile should be a square lets say of 30x30 cms, therefore there should like 10 motifs apron horizontal (this can vary, is just to give an idea)

This is the pattern motifThis is the general idea


Make a layer via copy with the selection of the tile


Put a horizontal guide where the arc stars and draw a horizontal dash a pixel width using the Pencil Tool over this guide outside the image



Duplicate the layer and move it down until the dash touch the image bottom. Reduce the layer opacity to see exactly where to locate it:


Create the bottom guide, set the layer opacity to 100% and make a rectangular selection from guide to guide, the same width than the image


Menu Edit > Define Pattern

Create a new document and fill it with the pattern:


Add after the question edit:

Duplicate the two tile layers to the right, 50% up:

new tile

Make a rectangular selection from guide to guide, the same width than the four layers and create a pattern.


  • Good but @Jo87 wants it to be a brick pattern look.
