import pattern and use it as a swatch

I am trying to scan in wall paper and turn the image into a swatch so I can use the pattern with paint bucket to fill in my designs. Is that possible in photoshop?

Mel,

Open your scan, then click Edit>Define Pattern.
Give your pattern a relevent name.

Now click on the paint bucket tool. Choose "Pattern" from the top tool bar drop down. Your pattern should now appear in the pattern select in the top tool bar.

hope it helps!
