Texture source roundup.

I guess this is one of those sites that need to be bookmarked. CgTutsPlus has a collection of free photo source sites providing you with a wealth of textures. A very useful roundup indeed.

Burnt paper textures.

In this set from SixRevisions, you’ll find 12 completely free, high-resolution, and large-scale paper textures that feature burn marks. They have a very liberal Creative Commons license so that you can use them in any manner you choose, whether it’s personal or commercial.

High-res fabric textures.

Designm.ag has released a new pack of 10 high resolution fabric textures for use in your own design. These textures are free for personal and commercial use. You can get any of the textures individually from Flickr by clicking on the image that you want, or you can download the whole pack of 10 textures at the end of the post.

Grunge, vintage and wood textures.

10Steps tried to link most of these textures back to the creators’ personal site, so we can see their other amazing work. Good stuff.

Rough and dirty.

Designm.ag is getting down and dirty with over 40 free Dirt and Ground textures. And SixRevisions has 15 free Rough textures. Mix it up for some grungy designs.

More texture packs.

High quality texture, backgrounds and patterns are the most desired freebies on the internet. SmashingApps is here to fulfil those desires with a collection of high quality texture packs. Thanks!

Never enough free textures.

Call us gluttons but we can never get enough free textures. The PhotoshopRoadmap feeds us another 60 impressive textures and backgrounds. And SmashingMagazine has 100 more. Burp! <Pardon>

Free stock images.

What a brilliant url… freestockimages.org. And what a great site. You’ll find Books, Old Wood, Dried Fruit, Fruit, Water and much, much more. Use them as stock photos or as textures. Kudos.

Just an old paper tag.

It’s just an old vintage paper tag, but it’s a ripper. Thank the DesignShard for this beautiful image.

Another swag of textures.

We’ve featured textures from WebDesignLedger in the past and are mightily impressed. They’ve come to the party once again with 80+ fresh new textures that you’ll find here. And a great showcase of 25 examples of textures in web design here. Great work WDL.
