How to use selfmade tiles

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am new to this software. I tried to find out how I can use my tiles. But I could not find any answers. So please is there anyone out there to help a dummie? I want to make a wallpaper size 800x600 and as a background i want to fill in my tile. But how can i do that? Thank´s a lot in advance for your help.

Painter44 - I have another method you may wish to try, as it'll give you more flexibility on the scale of tiles and how many fit the final piece.

Open the original picture with Paint.NET

Go to Image > Resize (press CTRL+R)

The Width box should be highlighted, change this setting to 800

Assuming the 'Maintain Aspect Ratio' is ticked, the height should change to 600 - press [OK]

Go to Layers > Rotate Zoom (CTRL+SHIFT+Z)

In the bottom left of the dialog tick the box that says 'Tiling'

Now, the slider on the right hand size called 'Zoom', begin to drag this down - somewhere below 0.50

By adjusting the zoom level you can decide how much coverage of your wallpaper you would like

Once you're happy press the [OK] button.

Hope this is of some help to you.
