I had a chance to upload 60 new textures today of various categories. There are some pretty good grungy, cracked cement textures as well as some fall leave textures that might be good for a fall project. I also managed to get a decent amount of good looking wood textures and a couple of clouds. I also uploaded a brush set of stars that I created as well! Hope you like them!

Turn a Texture into a Brush Easily in Gimp!

An effective way to use texture images and stock photos is to turn them into brushes for use in your graphic editor. Both Adobe Photoshop and Gimp allow you to easily create brushes and maintain libraries of them. Brushes are a very effective tool for any graphic artist because you can easily change the size, opacity, and placement of them in your image. You can also change their rotation and shape very quickly. Different brushes can be used for common tools such as the paintbrush, airbrush, and eraser.
