I often enjoy tinkering with software that generates seamless textures. I have a license for Filter Forge
Consider also investing in TextureMaker once the developer comes out of hiding
It has a an "extract" texture from any image feature. Self referential as with some procedural textures: pull texture from an area of the source to apply to the image as a whole with some of the article's techniques.
There are [now] dozens of great F/OSS procedural (seamless) texture creation tools
** Not covered in this article are layer blend modes
I am nearly infuriated that adobe resists adding a feature to allow user created layer blend modes. This custom mode should be stored in the photoshop format file so others need not have locally installed your custom layer blend mode. ALSO the plugin SDK needs to be expanded to allow this.
(1)bandwidth and storage are inexpensive.
(2)email is NOT for sending binaries
Do NOT rape photographic pixels with lossy compression. PNG 24- or 32 bit for the interweb. Send URL to high resolution images by email.
If you believe the destination for your photographs is thumbnail hell on the interweb sell your high tech imagine devices, donate the money to children's charity, buy a cheap and inexpensive CMOS SOC or designed as disposable:
Eliminate time wasted "optimizing" away quality!
EyeFi --- SDHC card wifi to local devices or hop to internet. EyeFi really really needs an EyeFi MICRO sdhc card (or micro SDXC)
Infinitec IUM --- flash USB wifi to local devices or hop to internet. Infinitec needs to employ esatap (power over esata, work in either esata or usb ports)
dropbox is a choice. ALSO signup for box, Amazon S3, and a handful of other free[mium] cloud providers.
Setup freeNAS at home/work with ZFS. Other than ZFS is inanity.
rsync is your friend.
Once upon a time I would have defended windows freeware. But vista drove me and mine to linux. XP is our last microsoft OS. We use Ubuntu, arch, fedora, & BSD ... so we have OSX love, too. Raspberry Pi soon.
FLAC or no sale. We use both iOS and android, jailbroken and root'd respectively. MY hardware is MINE. My information and privacy are NOT commodities (pox upon facebook & google "free" services & other "social" "networking")
