Thank you SO MUCH.

I'm guessing if you wanted to make scanlines at different angles you'd just fill in the original pattern different?

Fluker: no you do not paint any part of the image white.  Paint half the image black and leave the other half as transparent
Fluker
are you sure you filled the transparent bit with white?

It didn't work for me Sad

When i select everything and click edit > define pattern it just saves a black square, it doesn't save the transparent half, so when i use the pattern on an image it just turn black.
