i would make a new image that is the size you want a single square to be, put a 1 pixel border around it. Select all, then set as a pattern. New image fill with pattern.

Yeah but that selects the white square inside of the 1px line, all i want is just the line.


So this is how it went: (I am using Adobe Photoshop V 7.0.1)
Step 1. I created a 6px x 6px image.
Step 2. I clicked on the channels tab then created a new channel.
Step 3. I inversed the color of it so the background was white instead of black.
Step 4. Then I took the rectangular marquee tool and chose fixed size- 5px by 5px.
Step 5. I placed the 5px X 5px marquee tool on the image.
Step 6. Then I went 'select'>'inverse' so i could have a 1px width, backwards 'L'.
Step 7. Then I filled the backwards 'L' with black.
Step 8 & Question. I went to 'Edit'> and i wanted to put 'define pattern' but it only had the option 'define brush'. Is there anyway i could get it so i can define that pattern? or get the define pattern option on the image that i created above^?

(so i basically want to define a pattern with a black backwards 'L' and it wont let me)

hey.. yep, go back to the image, or create it again. but make sure that you deselect it (thats when you see a dotted line around the graphic)
theres a shortcut to it too, jus press CTRL + D.
hope it helps.. lates

EDIT - oh and another thing, if you dont know how to get the grid on your pic after youve defined it, jus right click on a layer, select 'blending options' > pattern overlay .. and then your grid should be there.
make sure to play around with the opacity settings, i usualy go from about 5-20%

catch ya laters
