    Hey do you guys know where I can find a tileable texture of poker table felt? Or maybe a tutorial on how to make one, using Photoshop or Fireworks?

    Thanks.

    I have always found that when I can't find a texture, the easiest thing is to photograph it, scale it, and tile it.

    Easy way to make a tileable pattern is to make a sqyare of it, cut it in half vertically and swap left and right sides, then flatten, then cut it in half horizontally and swap top and bottom sides. Now you'll have a big + through the middle of your texture. Use the clone stamp with a spatter brush to eliminate it and voila! You've now got a tileable pattern!

    Thanks for the reply transio.

    Unfortunately, I don't have access to poker table felt.
    For reference though, how do u use the clone and spatter brush to elimate the +? (is there a spatter brush in PS 7.0? thats what i have)

    Thanks.

    When you pick the clone tool, there's a drop-down menu of brushes at the top. Spatter brushes are a default brush type.

    Well I found a felt texture online. Just in case you need a good felt texture :

    http://www.thefeltpeople.com (lol, kinda obvious i guess)

    Anyways, I gonna try transio's tiling method, ill let you know if I have any problems. Thanks!

    UPDATE: Well i attempted to tile the image. It came out ok i guess. I have linked to the source image in case transio or anyone else would like to try and make it tileable.

    You might want to add a little green to it, then make a double-tile for the bg so you can add a gradient to it. That would look awesome

    Looks good for the most part; I didn't know if that diamond pattern was intentional or part of the original seams ?

    (I'm glad to see you've had new ideas about the site since I last viewed it)

    It wasn't really intentional, but i don't think it looks too bad, kinda gives it a woven appeareance


    Transio: wow that looks awesome. You're green definately looks better too.

    There are a couple of snags in using the gradient effect though,
    - my containing table is only the width of the deck. although i guess i could nest it inside of another table or div.
    -the big reason, for it to look right it has to stay the same dimensions as u created it, which means ill be adding another 30k to may total page size.

    For now i think im gonna use your felt, and maybe down the road ill try to work that gradient in there.

    Thanks alot!
