I may have missed this in the previous versions of Adobe Photoshop.
Is there "a way / or method" to create repeating / tiled background images in photoshop?
Many times a "tile" for a tiled background is quite small at around 150px x 150px.
It would be very nice to be able to work on the tile, be able to zoom in and out of it, and actively see a functioning live tiled background.
Yes it might be a bit like a kaleidescope, but it would be live and you would see any harshness in the pattern and can remedy glitches it in real time.
It would also be very nice to be able to "draw / paint / edit" off the edge of the tile and have the effect carried over to the other side...
Yes just like in Asteroids.
I think creating Tiled BG's is a very strong contender for being one of the more frustrating things I do with Photoshop. I hope the above ideas can be added to PS6.
Just to you you know... DPaint IV for the Amiga did this very well back in 1990'ish.
There will not be any substantial changes to CS6 to add new features beyond the beta. We are too far along in the process for that. To accomplish what you desire, can you use the pattern feature to tile? For any new features you wish to request, you can to to this website http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family people can vote on the favorite features.
Choose Edit > Define Pattern.
Enter a name for the pattern in the Pattern Name dialog box.
