Random question: How do you make that diagonal-line overlay effect?

It is built in into fireworks. If you want one in photoshop just create a small document (eg. 8 pixels by 8 pixels), select the pencil tool, make the diameter 1 pixel, and draw the diagonal lines pixel by pixel (don't try antialiased lines, as they will look weird.. believe me). After you are finished, go to Edit > Define pattern, and photoshop *should* recognize your pattern and make it seamless. Name your pattern whatever you want. Now create a big document, select the paint bucket tool, change the fill type to pattern, and select the new pattern you just created. Now click the canvas to fill the canvas with your pattern. If you've done everything correctly, you should have a seamless pattern.


Hope that helps. I gave the photoshop instructions off of the top of my head, so forgive me if I missed something.
