Hi, I hope someone here can help me! I've been searching online to find a fix to this problem, but I've only seen solutions for Illustrator, not Photoshop Elements. I'm using PSE 2020. When I Define Pattern as a single block and then choose Fill Layer to multiply the pattern onto a larger canvas, faint white seam lines continuously appear. I can zoom in and they are still there (a bug mentioned in Illustrator), I can't find where I can see if the pattern has shrunk or added a decimal to the pixel size or canvas size. How can I solve this issue without having to painstakingly go over my final canvas with a blur or pattern stamp?

Can you post a sample pattern before any editing was done to it?

Absolutely! I've got plenty. Thank you so much for taking a look. I've been searching for an answer and as I'm still learning the ins and outs of the program on my own, so much of what I read is a bit over my head. 😕

Thanks for your help!!

I don't see any issues with the two sample patterns you provied.

 

I reduced the size using Image>Resize>Image Size to 512px x 512px before going to Edit>Define Pattern as below and still don't see any seams. I used a new document of 8.5 x 11 for the images below.

That's very interesting.

When I've created a repeat pattern, I saved the original with Define
Pattern and then opened a new document with the measurements I needed for
whatever item (mug, bags, etc) and then did Fill Layer and the faint lines
appeared.

As I've said, I'm a novice and am trying to learn on my own, so it's
entirely likely that I'm doing it wrong! Can you recommend a tutorial I can
view to learn the correct way to use the patterns I've downloaded? I'm
keenly interested in learning to correctly size patterns for different size
products.

Thank you for your help!
