Tile Offset

Tile Offset

Traditionally, one used Photoshop's offset function to preview a pattern's edges. This action does the same thing, but without the hassle of counting pixels. The Tile Offset action works on any image size...a real timesaver!

See the online demo for more details on making seamless patterns.

Very practical for me because with Photoshop 6.0, no tiling for making pattern, thanks.

I don't see the necessity for the action as dividing width and height by 2 and applying Filter>Offset is already as simple as it can get. Besides, when only checking for seems, an exact number is not needed, a simple guesstimate is all it takes to run Offset and determine if there are seems. ~~TCH

I've always wanted to have/make an action like this. Awesome to see it here. This will make all our lives much easier. Keep up the excellent work. Go check out all of Lisa's other actions. They are well worth it!
