50+ High Resolution Textures, Tutorials and Resources

Advertisement

Hundreds of thousands of incredible Textures are all over the web. Due to this phenomenally vast amount of textures available, you can now add dirt, rust, floral effect, swirls, mold, oil stains in your artworks and photos to give them an aged, damaged, dreamy or any look you want.

So I’ve been surfing and made a list of sites that offer free textures to download. Here are tons of convenient stock textures that others have freely contributed to the design community!

Important: Licenses of every Texture varies, so be sure to check that information before using them.
