Texture Workshop is a multi functional toolbox which allows you to turn practically any picture into a repeatable tile. These tiles can then be used as backgrounds of webpages, wallpapers, textures for 3D objects and much more.

You can take any picture with similar objects (leaves, stones, beans, nuts, bolts etc.) and process it so that the right area of the picture will imperceptibly flow into the left area, and the lower area will flow into the upper one. In other words, a real repeatable tile will be obtained.

The same can be done with a small fragment of a texture (marble, wood, water waves, tissue etc.) to produce a smooth and limitless surface.

The program can be used conveniently both by a beginner for creating their very first own home page, and by a professional web designer for large scale work.

Some features such as gamma, inversion and skewing are disabled when using the trial version of the program.
