Hour 11. Custom Backgrounds and Colors > Creating Your Own Backgrounds

Creating Your Own Backgrounds

Any GIF or JPEG image can be used as a background tile. Pages look best, however, when the top edge of a background tile matches seamlessly with the bottom edge, and the left edge matches with the right.

If you're clever and have some time to spend on it, you can turn any image into a seamless tile by meticulously cutting and pasting, while touching up the edges. Paint Shop Pro provides a much easier way to automatically make any texture into a seamless tile: Simply use the rectangular selection tool to choose the area you want to make into a tile, and then choose Selections, Convert to Seamless Pattern. Paint Shop Pro crops the image and uses a sophisticated automatic procedure to overlay and blur together opposite sides of the image.
