High resolution texture round-up for february
Over the last 2-3 weeks, lots of different articles about and collections with various high resolution textures have been published all over the design community. In this post, I would like to present the most important ones, in order to make sure that you don’t miss any of the action. So let’s get right to it:
Launch of Seamlesstextures.net
Fellow texture blogger Caleb Kimbrough of LostandTaken.com has launched a new site, which entirely focuses on seamless textures, hence the name seamlesstextures.net. If you are looking for textures, which can right away be used for tiled (website) graphics, seamlesstextures.net is the place to go!
Ultimate Guide for Creating High Quality Textures
Caleb also wrote a great tutorial for DesignM.ag on how to create high quality textures and goes into great detail with regards to equipment, lighting, sharpness and post-processing. Check out the tutorial here!
30 free cardboard textures (DesignM.ag)
DesignM.ag published a nice collection of 30 free hi-res cardboard textures. This post includes some of my textures, which I offered last week, but next to that, you can find a few other gems. Check out the collection here!
100 beautiful free textures (Smashing Magazine)
At the beginning of this month, Smashing Magazine offered a huge collection of hi-res texture images, including some categories, which are otherwise not so easy to find: wool, leather, denim, water or glass. Explore the entire collection here.
50 rusted metal textures (Webdesigner Depot)
What would be a texture round-up without the obligatory rust or grunge textures? One of the most popular texture categories currently is rusted metal, and Webdesigner Depot published a brilliant collection featuring some of the most colorful rust textures, I have come across. This is certainly a bookmark-worthy article, so go check it out here!
As you can see, February was a great month for all texture lovers. In case I missed one or more essential resources, please let me know in the comments and I will add it to this article. Now make your internet providers happy by downloading as many textures as possible!
