How can i turn this line into a circle in photoshop cs6 ?

I want to draw a circle with this texture

This is not how I want to draw my Circle. I want to copy then rotate and then paste the first image's texture many times, to create a circle shape, not like the below image where it looks like a STOP sign. (It should have a circle inside since the image would be created by keep copying and rotating the first image to fill all the pixels)

    Homework assignment? What have you tried? – Scott Jan 19 '15 at 5:54
  • I am a programmer trying to make my own graphics in my game. This is texture is used to create a lightning animation programmatically. What I have tried is googling for the past 3 hours, I have no prior knowledge of photoshop apart from basics. I suppose one way to do it is manually copy and paste it 200~ times. But that would take me a while – dimitris93 Jan 19 '15 at 5:58
  • @Scott any better suggestions, are highly appreciated – dimitris93 Jan 19 '15 at 6:06

    Seems to be you could simply draw two circles and an an outer glow to the inner small circle. – Scott Jan 19 '15 at 6:09
  • @Scott This is actually very smart, I might have to do it that way if it there is no other way to recreate the exact texture I have – dimitris93 Jan 19 '15 at 6:12

I don't believe there's anything automated to rotate a vertical tile around it's center. You'd have to manually copy and rotate. You could use the Transform Again function in the Edit menu, but it would still be fairly tedious.

My suggestion is to draw 2 circles, then apply an Outer Glow Layer Style to the inner circle.

enter image description here

If you need the inner circle to be a "hole" or counter, you'll need a third circle which matches the size of the inner circle. And you'll want to draw the first inner circle with the Subtract Front Shape path mode set so it removed the center of the larger circle.

enter image description here

The third circle would have a Fill Opacity set to 0% so the fill isn't visible, but the outer glow is.

(Note the counter in the bottom layer)

You could also use one shape with a gradient overlay....

This is that could work first draw lines

marge the line shape and get the circle selection on it... and mask it.
