Our good friend Julie McLeod has graciously shared five of her homemade collections of textures with us: Metal Textures 1; Wood Textures 1; Stone Textures 1 and 2; and Abstract Textures 1.
Each collection includes five high-resolution textures–shown in the sample pages below–saved in JPG format. You are free to use the textures in any and all of your creations without restriction; you may not redistribute them or post them elsewhere without permission, however.
Under each sample page, you’ll find a download link for the collection–which has been compressed into a ZIP file–the file name and its size (in megabytes). Save the ZIP file on your computer, and double-click it (or use a utility like WinZip) to decompress it into a folder containing the sample page and the five textures. If you’re having trouble finding the file, check your Downloads folder, or search for the file by its name
