Add Tile Effect in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Ash0hley, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how to add a tile effect to an image in Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7.
To begin, we should open a document by creating a new one, or opening an existing one.
It has already been done here.
Come over to the right-hand side, and make sure that we've selected the layer that we want to work with.
If we have more than one, then select the one that you want to use.
Find "Filter" on the top menu bar.
Go to "Stylize", and select "Tiles".
This is where we can create a tile effect for our image. It offsets part of the picture.
We can now manually change how many tiles we would like.
Maybe we'd like 20 tiles; just type it in.
The "Maximum Offset" percentage.
This determines how far we'd like our image to be offset. Let's say 15 percent.
Then we can choose to fill the empty area with the "Background color", "Foreground Color", "Inverse Image", or "Unaltered Image".
Let's use the "Inverse Image" for now.
Press "OK" to apply it to the canvas.
We will see that it's been made these into tiles, and it has offset it quite dramatically. Behind, is the inverse version of the image. The white parts are now dark, and the darker parts are light.
Let's undo it, then go back to "Tiles" from the "Filter" option on the menu bar.
We're going to use "Background Color" this time.
Press "OK to apply it to the canvas. The background color will be transparent.
This is a VisiHow video, and I've just shown you how to add a tile effect in Photoshop CS6 on Windows 7.
