I suggest making a template tile, one that has just a black outline of the size of your tile. Make your tile as a large square, making sure it''s seamless or whatever you want. Copy and paste the template tile onto a large new document. Then copy and paste the large square picture into a new layer. Select the new layer, choose the transformer distort. Drag the corners of the large picture to match the corners of the smaller template tile. Apply the distort. Select the template tile layer using the magic wand select all the space outside of the template tile, select the large picture layer and clear the selected area, getting rid of all the overlap from the distortion. Add other details and such. This is the method I used to use when making isometric tiles, you''ll probably have to mess around with it a few times so that you can distort it correctly without losing to much off the sides.
