Mirror edges of a picture?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm wondering how to do a certain thing, I'm really bad at explaining so sorry if you don't get it

 

I'm trying to create a seamless leaves texture, for this to happen it needs to be able to connect seamlessly to a duplicate of itself.

 

To be able to do this I need to make when a picture goes out of the image, the part that is missing reappears at the opposite side (told you I was bad at explaining)
 

Here is what I mean:

The tip of the leaf is cut off but I went the part that is cut off to reappear in the red area because it's sort of like mirrored? Here is another example:

The tip of the leaf is again cut off, the bit that is cut off would reappear back at the opposite side, the top, making it able to be seamless

 

Does anyone know HOW or at least WHAT THE NAME OF THIS METHOD is called?

Hello @Lukakio and Welcome to the forum :)

 

Here is a way to do this:

 

1.  Select the part of the leaf you want and Copy it.

2.  Make a new layer and paste the copied part here.

 

leaf-2.png       ~ ditto ~

 

I hope this helps :)

Pixey's may be the quickest way.


If you want to do it a few times though, you can automate it using BoltBait's Fill From' plugins Fill From Clipboard ... there's also a Fill From File

Thanks for the suggestions how even this isn't the most accurate method and I kinda wanted it automatic so it's spot on!

The easiest way is actually:

 

  • Click Layers > Rotate / Zoom (Or press Ctrl+Shift+Z)
  • Turn "Tiling" on.
  • Use the Pan setting to move the image where you want it.

It will automatically wrap to the other side.

All the times I've used Rotate/Zoom I've never thought of that

 

If the OP comes back (they asked for a video by PM and never came back to view it) ... just remember you'll have to still rotate the object manually before using Rotate/Zoom
