Bring up the Sydney Harbour Image
Resize by 20% & Sharpen
Duplicate Twice = 3 images
Minimize 2 of them

Click on Seamless tiling and click the Default to start with this image
Click on Mirror - you get a reflection image
Change the Direction to Horizontal
Click OK
Resize by 50% & Sharpen - keep this image for the moment

Bring up another image of Sydney Harbour
Change the Tiling method to Edge
Try the width on 100, 50 & 0 to see which you prefer
Click OK
Resize by 50% & Sharpen - keep this image for the moment

Now choose one of the images of Sydney you have seamlessly tiled on the sides and place it on a wide image 800 x 145 to show it is tiling properly
I chose 145 as that is half the height of the image, because I scaled it to 50% ( Angel =0 & Scale = 50)
