  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
