Default Help with wallpaper!

I'm new to Maya so this is probably a very simple question to answer .

I am creating an internal view of a living room (furniture, fireplace etc.) and am trying to apply a .psd photoshop image of a wallpaper pattern to the walls.

I apply the shader, select the file and can see the wallpaper pattern, but it is just one huge out of scale image. What I need is to scale the pattern down and tile it on the walls.......

Any help and suggestions welcome.

Thanks,
Rob

In the placement node of your shader, you can change the number of times a texture repeats.

if it's Polygons you're working with, you can also scale up the UVs to make it repeat.
