    Create a Pattern in Photoshop CS5



      I can't create a Pattern of a selection area. When I try to create the Pattern at Edit->Define Pattern, this option isn't available.

      I will tell you the steps I'm taking:

      ->Create a new doc and use Paint Bucket Tool to paint it with Black (this is the background).

      ->Then I create a new layer and with the rectangular marquee tool I do a square.

      ->Keeping the selection I press cmd+backspace and the square becomes white.

      ->Keeping the selection I do a Stroke with 2px, color black and option Inside.

      ->Then I go to Edit to define a pattern of that square, however the Define Pattern option is gray, so I can't use it.

      Does someone knows why this is happening?
