    I am going through Chris’s first few lessons that take a PS mockup and slices it into CSS. I am having a bit of trouble getting a smooth transition from the header graphic to the repeating background image. The code is working just fine, however the repeating image is not smooth. Is there some sort of trick I need to do when exporting from PS?

    To ensure that I had an image that would match exactly, I took a sliver off the left side of the header grahpic, then repeated it. As you can see, it appears choppy.

    Thank you for your help!

    You should also make sure that the area that you slice out for your sliver does not have anything that isn’t 100% horizontally repeatable.

    It looks like this is the case. The sliver that you took of the left has a drop shadow that doesn’t stretch the whole way across the image, so when it is repeated, it isn’t smooth. Try taking a slice from further along the image, but still where the blue colour is correct.

    Thanks everyone, that did it.
