How to create a bigger image from a repeating texture?


Recommended Posts

Hi, for instance, I have this texture:

 

FLAT5-1.png

My question is, is there a way to automatically repeat this texture a number of times? for instance, tell paint.net to repeat this texture 4x5 times (4 times vertical and 5 horizontal) to get this result:

I copy pasted it manually. The idea is to have some automated way to do it fast.  Thanks

You can use Trail by Pyrochild to create the repeating effect. Should be under Object/Trail. You may need to add the plug-in if you don't have it already. It is found here:

I've tried the plugin but it doesn't seem to be doing anything, not sure how to use it.

This method involves no plugin:

 

1.- Resize your source image the resolution you want at the end using Nearest Neighbor resampling algorithm.

Source image is 64x64 and you want to 5 times to repeat it vertically and horizontally. So resize to: 320x320

 

2.- Press CTRL+Shift+Z or open Layers->Rotate/Zoom tool.

 

3.- Check "Tiling" box. And enter Zoom parameter 0.2 (1/5)
