I have an image of a squared background(see attachment). Now having extended the width of the image, how can I fill in the blank on both sides with squares most easily? Please instruct steps in slow motion. Thanks.

I don't know if I got your question, but do you mean you want to close the squares?
If this is the problem, you could just draw a line at the edge of the picture.

You can just duplicate the layer and move into position on a bigger canvas.

increase canvas first, then...

step 1 select layer > cmd/ctrl j to copy layer

use move tool to position.

repeat as necessary


crop as shown in screenshot
define pattern
use fill tool on blank canvas filled with your defined pattern
you'll need to crop slightly better than I did to avoid the thicker stripes.

crop final document to suit requirements.

Having now made a new backgroud sheet as instructed, how can I best copy a text logo from the old picture (beware the old logo has some hollow that shows the old background) and paste it to the new sheet? Please again instruct steps in slow motion. Thanks again very much.

Need to see what you're working with, description is too vague.
