LOL. You can't.

Some color basics. There are solid colors, gradients, and patterns.

A solid is just that.... a solid color. One shade.

A gradient is one color shifting to another, and sometimes to another and another.

A pattern is a shape, or a group of shapes, made to repeat in a certain order. Usually a vector shape, that can have it's colors changed, but not always.

There are some exceptions to these three, but they're the basics. You can't take a jpeg and turn it into a solid, a gradient, or a pattern. Just how it goes.

Sorry to be a wet blanket. Just how our design life rolls...

True.

But it won't come out well. You'd have to spend some time with the jpeg to make sure it tiled correctly. If it doesn't tile correctly, is it even worth using?
