Hi everyone! I just wanted to share with you a website that offers free, high resolution textures for your photo editing projects. You can check out the textures at:

 

www.texturepix.com

 

I'm working on keeping the site up-to-date with new textures on a regular basis, so if there are textures that you want and don't see on the site, feel free to put in a request!

The site states "Free-to-use textures for photoshop"

 

I don't use photoshop

 

Will there be an area for other types of users?

 

Thanks

The textures are in .jpg format.  If the image editing program you use can utilize .jpg images as textures (or patterns) then you're good to go.  Otherwise, there may be a way to convert the jpg to a format that your program can use.  For example, I'm using GIMP and all I have to do is put the .jpg file in the patterns folder in my user profile.  I can also open the .jpg file in GIMP then save it as a .pat file and that will work too.

As Agouti mentioned, these textures can be used with any photo editing software, as the images are in JPG format. I guess better clarity is needed from me on the website with regards to the wording - sorry about that. I hope you find the textures useful, and if you need any in particular that aren't on the site, just let me know :)

Thanks.

 

If we have images, like a photo of a cool texture should we send them to you?

Hi Martel, I had considered having a 'community sourced textures' area, but at the moment I'm just accepting requests for textures, where I go out and capture them. At some point it would be cool to have a small community of photographers who help contribute to the library of textures. This is something I will look to incorporate potentially at the beginning of 2015.

Hi everyone. 
 
Just thought I'd let you know that image information has now been included for the wood textures, so now all textures on the site are up-to-date with their resolution and file size.

Hello everyone!
 
I just wanted to give you a quick update on some new changes on the site. As of now, in order to download textures, you will need to be logged in. You don't have to login to browse what's on the site, however, only when you want to download a texture. It's quick and easy to register. have a read of this http://blog.doodleboxphotography.co....on-texturepix/ to find out more.
 
And as always, if you find any bugs, do let me know and I'll iron them out!
 
Have a good weekend!
 
-Tamara

Hey everyone. It was a rather cold morning today - the leaves and the grass looked really frosty, so thought I'd capture some frosty grass and leaf textures. Check them out:

Hi everyone! I've updated the navigation for TexturePix to try and make it a little easier to browse through texture categories when on any texture or category page. Hope it helps!
