New Free Textures

Free texture page


I have recently been working on some new textures. I thought it might be fun to offer a free set of textures and see what other people could do with them.

I had loads of fun making these textures. They were all created with my Canon EFS 60mm macro lens with post work done in PS5. You can find cool textures everywhere. I have photographed everything from rusty metal gates to the scratches on my kitchen sink.

Although I don’t use textures in my work a great deal they are a lot of fun to play with and can completely transform the feel of an image. Here are a couple of before and after images using some of my textures.

Before and after button images


I already have a second set of free textures ready to give away and will post them soon, so come back/follow me. If you like the textures let me know.

More textures coming soon!!!
