It is time to get back into the swing of things and get some more content on texturemate! Today, I have added 25 more textures as well as an industrial texture pack. The texture pack contains ten of some of my favorite industrial, grungy textures from factories in the area. Enjoy! Texturemate has also topped 13,000 users, which is awesome! I've also been working to get through comments and other site updates.

Tutorial: How to Photograph High Quality Textures

I've been getting asked more often lately on how to take a high quality texture photograph so I will give it a shot and reveal the issues I've had making sure texture photographs are high quality and determining if they should be shared or not. A good texture image can be taken with any camera from a simple point-and-shoot camera up to a professional SLR camera as long as a couple key points are followed. The first challenge is focus. Keeping the entire texture image in focus can be easier if the picture is taken at as square of an angle as possible.

100 New Free Textures Added!
