    Great tutorial. The biggest tip I've found for creating tileable textures is to use the Filter/Other/Offset feature to wrap a single image. Then you touch it up and wrap it back. You wind up with the same result, but you don't need to tile your image four times.

    Try it. You'll like it.

    I have to second that first link--it's a really cool tip. I'd never seen the second one before, but it's also great.

    Thanks!

    Also, Painter (great app) has wraparound painting: you paint off one edge and it comes right back on the other. A very easy way to get seamless tiles.

    I still want to work on some formatting issues, and do a little more step by step action.

    This will get you started though.
