How to Create Patterns in Photoshop

1. First Of All Open Your Photoshop Select New File.

I take 300px x 200px file size for this one. You can take any image size as you like.
Give the name of image layer as like pattern01. Now I take this image for our tutorial.
You can take also any single image for it but I take this one because we can get more options.
One thing I have to suggest you that try to keep the image always in square because whenever
we give the Pattern Effect to page it repeat the element that's why it should be in square.
Now see the image like this.
