    Why would you want to NOT tile both ways?
    The source image may have features near the sides that you don't want to get distorted?

    Well, if you look at my script/tut thing there are steps to do that wibbly shape horizontally to blend the top and bottom bits and theres another vertically to blend the sides. So skip either one of those but complete the rest of the sequence.

    Rightly so....

    I'm postulating, for the sake of argument, say, a background image with features on the left and right sides that, as Ghostman suggests, are desireable to be maintained, but that I might want to be able to tile vertically.

    I don't have any immediate plans to do anything like this, but I'm just envisioning it's use in a website, for example, where you want a main text column with such a background image to expand downward as text is added to the page, but to maintain a fixed width, and thus maintain certain distinctive edge features.

    OK -

    I updated the script in the other thread to allow horizontal, vertical, or both direction tiling.

    You know you spoil us... I was only curious whether it could be done, I didn't mean for you to go and change your script.

    But thanks!
