What is a good way to create properly aligned flat textures

Hi, I have this issue with creating properly aligned flat textures. I mean I would like to know if there is a proper way or a specific editor for creating textures that they will fit and they will not be creating that ''boxy'' feel.

In GIMP, with shift-control-O, you can offset the picture you're working on -- there's even a button to set offsets to half-width and half-height -- so the seams get put in the center and you can fix them. Then you can offset again if desired.

huh I kinda hoped that there is a some sort of a program that will make you work already in tiles and you could see the edges. But yeah I started doing something in photoshop and it pretty much works
