You now need to create an image without layers that contains each your pattern pieces. First save your file. Go to File>Save. In Photoshop crop the image to leave out all the extra space on your canvas. Click on ā€œCā€ and you will see the crop symbol on your mouse pointer. Click on two corners to select the cropping area and hit enter. Go to Layer>Merge Visible to flatten your layers into one. Then go to File>Save as to save a copy of your cropped and flattened image to a different file (ex: Pattern Name _01_flat.psd). You might want to go back and edit the file with all the separate images later which is why it is good to save as another file.
