This Photoshop script creates a tiled version of your image. It does nothing fancy. It only tiles the image. The most basic use of this script is to see if a texture is seamless. The other reason why I created this script was because I needed a way to do a tileable blur. This is something that is available in Gimp, but I have not yet seen it in Photoshop. When you blur an image in Photoshop it does not take into account the pixels that are on the opposite side. With textures that are supposed to tile this can produce visible artifacts on the edges.

Offset

This Photoshop script gives the selected layer an offset of 50% in the x and y direction. Changing the offset is a little trick for making tileable textures. You can see where the borders meet and make them seamless. When done you do the offset again. Unfortunately the standard Photoshop interface only accepts pixel values. A percentage cannot be entered. When working with images with different dimensions you have to change the values repeatedly. That is where this simple script comes in. It does the math for you and gives the currently selected layer an offset of 50%, regardless of its dimensions.
