Good grief ......


I'm ready to buy my island - but using the old store I don't know how long it will take to get delivery. So I'm still working on textures.


To give myself a break from plants I've been gathering the textures I want for the "bones" of the island. I knew what I wanted for the roof of the few buildings I'll have and had prepared myself for a lot of frustration in creating seamless textures.


I found some instructions and walked through them a few times, mentally preparing myself before opening my photo editor. And lo and behold I found a button - just one button is needed to create a seamless texture.


So once again I feel stupid - but this time I look like I know what I'm doing. :)


I use Corel's product and I guess I'd better explore those drop down menu's and see what else is in there.

hi. this probably won't help much with roofs and such, but it might help in some ways, maybe wallpaper? its a online flash application that makes seamless stripes (or tartan, theres a link to go to the tartan side) and you can make diagonals too. when you're done you get a nice little jpg you can import to SL.
