I have a photo of a tube, and want highlight a certain area with a crosshatch pattern. Can anyone help me how to do this? I can't seem to find any crosshatch patterns/brushes anywhere. Or even diagonal lines that I can choose what colour.

RE: Crosshatch
From a scale & colour point of view you would be better off with a transparent layer
then filter -> render -> pattern -> grid and rotate the layer. Then apply a mask or a selection.

If you want to use a pattern I have some engineering type patterns here:
There is a diamond pattern or you could use 2 fills, left then right diagonals. Being a pattern you are stuck with the size and black on white.
What it looks like

A bit more for you
Maybe try this: bit of a chinese scroll but from the top

1. The tube, add a transparent layer.
2. Use the filters -> render -> patterns -> grid to make a pattern
3. Once rendered, and still on the grid layer rotate the layer.
4. Once the grid is rotated, back to the tube layer, select the bits you want. I used the fuzzy select tool, but use whatever you want. Quick mask is useful.
5. Back to the grid layer, *invert* the selection and cut it, then tidy up by merging layers if required.
