    Default Seamless Tiling Background Challenge

    Acorn and the other Gary (Initiostar) have been contributing to a post on creating a better tiling background using SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics, the new Flash). https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthread.php?85262-Better-Tiling-Backgrounds

    A seamless tiling background is an image that when duplicated and placed next to and above the original image creates a seamless pattern.

    I am old and intractable and it took me a while to figure out what they were talking about. Go to the post for the background info.

    So as a challenge, I am going to post some of the patterns I came up with and the PNG and SVG files I used to tile.

    Let's see yours.

    Lightbulb Re: Seamless Tiling Background Challenge

    A small embellishment to GaryP's challenge.

    Here is a template, which you can use to design and test your seamless tiling.
    It only offers the steps to go from design to presentation for the Challenge but enough to take you into building usable seamless patterns for your websites.

    Seamless.xar

    Even if you cannot create an SVG, do submit your PNG version as even that can be used in a tiling; SVG is just making it crisper, smaller and faster to present.
