    How exactly do some folks make patterns?

    Like someone gives them a picture or something and they take that image and make it scrollable.

    I've got Adobe Photoshop CS 2 on my computer, but Im not exactly the best at using it...

    Are there any very simple ways of doing something like this? Like some kinda program I can download or something that makes the process somewhat simple?

    Thanks for any and all information that can be provided.

      I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

      I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

      But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

      +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.
