40 Fresh Free Texture Packs

June 2nd, 2010

By By Janos Racz

Every designer knows the importance of using the right textures in designs. And since making use of an already existing texture or image is so common and easy, the best you can do for your design is to use quality material that has variety and best suits your purposes.

And while there are many stock image sites all over the Web, we’re fortunate enough to have a generous community that shares these kind of resources openly. In this round-up we’ve collected 40 amazing new free texture packs to freshen up your designs. Make sure you read the terms and conditions and also say thanks to your fellow designers if you find their work valuable!

I’m getting a page not found for the media militia links, and the american flag texture apparently requires a paid subscription to download.

The Hungry Saw is not actually FREE – the artists claims on her site that it is “only available to certain people”.

The Hungry Saw texture has a password on it and apparently it’s not free. If anyone has the password to that texture, that would be helpful.
