How to Make Textures "Tileable"

Recommended Posts

I've looked all over for a long time trying to figure out how to make custom textures "tileable."  I have a lot of textures that would be perfect but some of them have a very obvious seam in them.  I have tried stretching etc. and for whatever reason the texture become contorted.  

 

I do have photoshop though I am not super familiar with how to eliminate that slight shadow gradient that is incredibly hard to avoid.  I've attached two files as an example.  One is the actual texture that I blend with a custom brown (123, 77, 43) that gives it a little more warmth.  The other image is just the result of the way that it is tiled.  I want to continue creating my own custom textures because I have had some great results from them.  Can anyone help me figure out how to eliminate these seams?

I've heard that the free Texture Studio does this

      I've got a few nice ones. But Im after some good grass ones and siding for wide boards. 
       
      Also, does anyone know how to modify a Normal Map? I'm trying to stretch the weatherboard N to make the boards look wider, but modifying the shape doesn't have any effect. I'm using a very wide board (James Hardie Stria) but all the bump maps are made for very skinny boards.

      Good Afternoon All!
      Hope Thursday treats everyone well!!
      I've read a lot of "tricks" used by other users concerning the Wall Texture/Siding Type/Custom Pattern called "Board & Batten" which is a prevalent siding type used to clad today's structures. The issue I have is I want to create a Parametric, stretchable, expandable siding type like that of, say,  "Siding-6", without having to manually create the siding type itself. (see inclusive PDF) How would this be accomplished.... step-by-step.... and not look stretched out, and show up in Ortho, Full Color Camera, and other views with the current depth depicted in my PDF? Client's are more sophisticated concerning our computer models, and thus, want (and pay for) the detail they rightly deserve. Thank you all for your input in advance!!! Great Day Everyone~!!

      CrazyBump is a well known application that runs on PC or Mac, that helps automate the creation of Normal maps. It's fairly intuitive to use as it guides you through the process and provides a 3D preview so you can see the effect that your normal map will have on the model.
