To generate a pattern:

1 Do one of the following:

• Select the layer that contains the area from which you want to generate the pattern. The layer you select will be replaced by the generated pattern, so it's a good idea to make a copy of the layer first.

• To generate a pattern in a new layer or file, select the pixels from which you want to generate the pattern, and choose Edit > Copy. Then add a layer to the image, or create a new file with the dimensions you want the final image to have.

Note: You cannot generate a pattern from a non-rectangular sample. If you make a non-rectangular selection, Photoshop uses the bounding box of the selected area to create a rectangular sample.

2 Choose Filter > Pattern Maker.
