    "Didn't find a thing?" This is from the #1 place to look: Adobe's own online Photoshop Help. (I do agree it's annoying the Pattern Maker is 'a separate download'.)

Select file ---> new.

It should be small (in terms of height x width). Image you are creating here will duplicate itself to form your pattern in the later stage.

For this example, I’ll be using 8×8 pixel canvas, zoomed them up and create a small pattern like this.

enter image description here

Draw the pattern

enter image description here

Pattern at 3200 % zoom view.

Step 2:

Edit --> Define Pattern

Specify the pattern name

enter image description here

Using Custom Pattern

Create a new canvas to try out the custom pattern. With your new canvas selected, Select Edit -> Fill.

In the Fill dialog box, select Pattern from the dropdown, find the pattern you’ve just created in Custom Pattern and click OK.

enter image description here

The canvas will now be filled with pattern you have just created.


Digiscape Gallery

  • create a new transparent psd file with the dimensions you need
  • draw your pattern
  • when you are finished, go to Edit -> Define Pattern and input your pattern's name

Now you are able to choose and work your pattern.

PS: There are a lot of tutorials

Select the portion you want to repeat (for accuracy, use the slice tool and select)

Create new blank document with the same resolution(of selected area) and fill it

Go to Edit and select Define Pattern

That's it!
