theres a filter at the bottom of the list called offset.

offsetting the texture 50% in both H and V directions will create a seamless tile. There may in some situations be a line or seam you will have to finger paint or smudge away provided thats the method you want to take to remove the seam.

kais power tools is a suite of filters and version 3 very old had a seamless filter inside its tools.

Texture maker can take a multitude of options in this regard, from selection a portion to make the texture from to duplicating and reversing it etc.. while adding new seamless layers and effects.

I use texturer make and photoshop for my work. They work great together; I recommend you get texture maker if you don't already have it.

Hi James1980,

I am writing an isometric map editor and tile engine. Here is a screenshot:

You will be able to import your own tile terrains (jpegs) into it.

I hope to release a tech demo this weekend
