This can get filed under the 'awesome' category. Have you ever wanted a texture to place under (or over) another layer in Photoshop to add depth or realism? Ever wanted a background for a webpage that you could tile easily? Ever wanted a solution like this for the low-low price of FREE? Now you have it: tileabl.es
I stumbled on this site via Cameron Moll's quick link-list he'd posted last week, prior to his leaving for a conference, so many thanks to him for this. To be honest, I haven't even opened up these .zip files yet for a closer look, but according to the site:
This pack consists of 20 [type of texture or pattern featured] textures at various detail levels. Included in the download is your .PAT patterns file which can be imported into Photoshop. You also get the layered .PSD file so you can edit each pattern to your liking. Grab your copy today!That's pretty cool in my books. Not only do you get the textures, but also the source files? Very nice touch. There are currently five 'sets' available: lines, paper, rust, fabric and wood ... and, to be honest, I can't think of what they'll release next! But, in the meantime, if you need some great looking, seemless textures for a project, maybe this is the site for you.
