I would like to create a "technical drawing" type look to an image, and a grid of some sort would be perfect. Just turning on the "view-grid" option gives that technical feel.
How do I create a repeated grid, and other repeated patterns in Photoshop elements 2.0?

Here are a few examples of what I want to recreate:

I would also like to create a "TV scanline" look such as used in the top/main logo of this site:

Scan lines are pretty easy to do … you just create a new empty image and draw one line. Then use the marquee tool to do a rectangle with the line in it plus an equal sized blank space. Next define your pattern (Edit>Define pattern)

Now when you want to use the pattern add use Layer>New fill layer>Pattern

Hope this helps 🙂

While not the identical look, I have gotten pleasing results by using Filter
Sketch > Halftone Pattern with the Pattern Type set to Line. Setting the
Size relatively small gives a nice, narrow line pattern in your Foreground/Background colors.

I create a new layer copy, apply this filter, and then adjust the opacity or blend mode to get the effect I like.
