|You can do the same thing and
select a smaller area in which to paste an image or colour fill and
This is a bit trickier as you have to
find the exact centre of the tile. You can do this by looking at the
cursor position shown and the bottom right of your screen.
See where it has (x:250 y:250) -- Image:
500 x 500 x 16 million
The size of my image is 500 pixels
square, therefore the exact centre is when my cursor is at co-ordinates
When you get the right position, click
the mouse once.
It's best to start with empty space
around the outside of the image so that you can now move up to the top
right corner, click, move to the top left corner, click and move back
close to the centre (doesn't have to be exact) and double-click. This will
complete the "circuit".
Do the usual "Promote Background
layer" and delete.
Then you will be able to fill the empty
space (still surrounded by flashing selection lines) with a colour and
apply a texture.
