I uploaded thirty five more textures that I photographed today. I happened to come across a 55 gallon drum of dripping paint and captured some grungy drippy textures! There's some other metal and flaking painted plastic surfaces as well. Hope you like them! Last night I uploaded a new wood brush set as well.
Texturemate now has a blog view if you prefer just seeing the latest graphic design resources and tutorials in the order they are posted! I created this page due to some reader feedback where people wanted to see what the newest resource was, regardless of what it is! The blog view will update whenever a brush set, pattern set, texture pack, or article is posted. Let me know how you like it!

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!
I took a few close-up photographs of some nasty rusty, flaked metal surfaces and they came out pretty good. Some of the textures with blue paint came out really good. In total, I uploaded about 75 texture stock images today!
Hello, and thanks for stopping by texturemate. My name is Bill Scott and this is my online repository where I share any textures, stock photos, brushes, or other design resources I create with others online! Professionally, I am an electrical engineer, with occasional website or graphic design work here or there. My hobbies include photography, graphic design, web design, and 3d modeling.
The use of texture in web design is something that can be the difference between a site that really stands out or a bland looking one that will not garner as much attention. Grunge styles or wood grain are popular textures that if used effectively here and there, can look great. Textures can add dimension and depth to a site's appearance and have seemingly made a comeback in the last few years, although many great web designers claim to always have used them.
Over 200 free textures were uploaded and categorized today, bringing the total number of stock images available to over 1,100! To celebrate, a free texture pack containing 30 high resolution distressed wood textures is available. Get it here:
