Scratching The Surface: 40 High-Grade Textures for Print and Web Projects

Advertisement

Textures are what you need if you want a surface to look realistic. Sure, you might as well create them digitally, e.g. using Photoshop. Yet, Photoshop’s results are much too clean to fake reality in a believable manner. If you want to create a photorealistic texture with your favorite image editor, you’ll need to combine filters with filters on filters, ’til days end. Why not walk the easy path and choose one of the following textures based on photos in different resolutions?
