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!
I uploaded about 120 new texture stock photographs today. They include some metal and rust with some nice grungy scratches. There are some good fabric and wall ones too.
I uploaded 75 texture images today of various categories. There are some good wood ones, some decent metal ones. A couple good rock and sand ones in there too! Oh yeah, and a couple nice wall textures.
The site is now back up short of some textures I had uploaded yesterday. I will re-upload those later today. According to my host, something pretty malicious in nature took the site down last night and corrupted some files. That should now be fixed. I have also re-added the lasted cracked cement brush set for Photoshop or Gimp.
You can now submit your artwork to texturemate's new flick public group pool to display it on the site! Feel free to add any art pieces that use brushes or textures from texturemate.
35 fabric and paper textures have been added today. I didn't realize how popular those categories of textures are, so I will keep adding more. I also enabled 5 star voting on all texture images, brushes, and texture packs to help track what is good and what isn't!
I uploaded 10 grunge textures I created in Photoshop from combining different source photographs, adjusting colors, and adding effects here and there. They all ended up redish for this group. They are located in either the Digital or Grunge folders.
I had some time to upload about 130 new textures today. There are some nice metal ones and a bunch of brick textures. A new Digital category has been made for textures made in Photoshop for free use!
texturemate.com is now on Technorati!
130 texture stock photos of various categories such as brick, cobblestone, grass, wall, and wood have been added today. Due to feedback, the first free texture pack has been split into two packs of 15 textures each instead of one containing 30 textures.
