Use a better background-image? I’m not sure what you mean? bg images repeat if 
you tell it to do. You either have an image designed to repeat or you don' (or 
you have a vector image via SVG that scales instead).

Have you checked that the tiles, do in fact tile seamlessly?

Again, I'm not sure if this deserves place in WSG, but to give you some
direction:

Photoshop has an Offset filter. Combined with the clone tool you can usually
generate repeating images relatively quickly. Quality depends on a lot of
factors though.

I would recommend you try somewhere like cgtalk.com (or email me directly)
for better instructions.

Hi, Jon;

Thanks for the offer of more info on this, and sorry for bending  
(breaking?) the main purpose of WSG!


Any info you can offer on this subject would be a huge help!
