There are so many uses these days for textures in photography, some are free, some are charged for (along with some information on how to use them) and some I even made myself and share freely...I wanted to post some links so you can just look for yourselves...First off I will share my textured images....then the list of my textures...so you will see that mine is so minute compared to so many others, But I haven't really done any in a year or two been doing so much other stuff so I do have an excuse (sort of) I tend to do things then want to do something else then move on...sometimes I move back but haven't had the time since remodelling and fixing up and cleaning out and and and and ...
My textured images...
I did use textures on some of my other pieces to see it all just go to
The textures I created...
What is cool is when someone uses one of my textures they share with me that they used it and show me the outcome I created a group where they can post when they use one of my textures..
.these are all under scrapbuddy2 since changing name in mid stream confuses people but here is my group
I need to go through find more and invite them to the group...thats a good thing to put on my list...cuz many don't know about the group and love to be invited usually.
Ok..now to the ones I really want to share...
This group of textures are free to use....make sure you download the original size image if you're going to save them to your hard drive...but always keep a file with their name so you can give credit when possible
This is similar but these textures are big enough to do very large images some don't post very large textures this one says HIGH RESOLUTION ONLY
Similar more textures...yes you will find many duplicates because many people belong to many groups. The more "hits" you get or "like"s the more you get notariety on Flickr...I have made it to "explored" which means they make it in the top 100 for at least a portion of a day which is a big deal to flickr people I have my one Explored site cuz I was pretty proud of being "explored"
More free textures
Here is where people have posted pictures where they have used textures. Normally they share where they got the texture so you can see and also credit the artist of the texture
Ok now for the paid for textures...one popular is florabella
http://www.flickr.com/photos/waitingforsophie/ check out her artwork..this is where she sells her textures and techniques
These are people who have purchased her textures and actions and posted
this lady doesn't charge and is just an amazing artist but could easily charge...here are people who have used her textures...
