Well, it's been awhile. I finally had some time to upload some new free textures! Now that summer is coming to an end, I should have more time to be able to add new design resources to texturemate. The new textures are mainly grungy and were taken in some very cool industrial ruins. Hope you like the new textures!
Texturemate has 5 or 6 different Photoshop brush sets as well as some patterns referenced in the Japanese book, Photoshop Design Tools Premium Edition: Brushes and Patterns. This book contains tons of various free Photoshop design resources. It is available via Amazon.co.jp at:
The latest version of abrMate now allows you to convert any newer Photoshop CS brush set that can be opened by the software to a Photoshop 7.x compatible brush set in a new .abr file. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for Photoshop users that are not using the latest version of Photoshop and want to use brushes available online that were created using newer versions.
Anyone have any good tricks or ways to make patterns tileable or seamless? I have some nice textures but it is proving hard to turn them into good patterns!
Why does Adobe make it so brushes are not backwards compatible with every new release? Are brushes really that big of a deal where they have to change their format every version? Just wondering...
I've had some people request brushes compatible with Adobe Photoshop 7 and just wanted to see if there is a large amount of people still using it. I have a copy and can probably start making my brushes compatible with that version.
Remember Photoshop .pat pattern files are different then Gimp .pat pattern files!
abrMate is a freeware Windows application I wrote that has the ability to open Adobe Photoshop .abr brush preset files for previewing, organizing, or exporting brushes to .png's. I began writing abrMate because there didn't seem to be a full-featured free Windows application out there for opening and organizing brush files.
