AUTHOR SUBJECT: Building a Library of Images for Everyone

Hi everyone,

I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to use in your projects. They might be useful under titles, for visual effects or anything else you can think of. They are all original...all my own work.  All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

http://soundimage.org/

The images are on my "TXR" pages (for "Textures.")

I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated.  :-)

All the best,

Eric

You're all very welcome...I hope some of my images are useful!

I photographed a lot of cool textures last week that I'm sure could be used in all kinds of things. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-brick/
http://soundimage.org/txr-concrete/
http://soundimage.org/txr-ground/
http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation/
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

If anyone has requests for certain types of images, I'll be happy to keep my eyes open for them. Just let me know. :-)

Have a good week,

Eric

Hi everyone,

A whole bunch of new seamless texture images are ready for you on the following pages:

TXR - Brick
TXR - Concrete/Pavement
TXR - Foliage
TXR - Ground
TXR - Stone
TXR - Wood

Feel free to generate maps from them (displacement, specular, etc) as needed. If you need me to create them custom for you, drop me an email...(my email address is at the bottom of my homepage.)

I hope some of them are helpful!

Hi everyone,

I've opened a new page of free sky images that might come in handy in your projects:
http://soundimage.org/txr-skies/

I also added a bunch of new wood images here:
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/


I hope some of them are helpful!

This week's new free images are on my TXR - WOOD page. At the top, I've added a bunch of smooth wood images that might come in handy for interiors. Some have dents and other signs of wear.

If you scroll down (way down) to Seamless Textures, you'll find about 20 "fantasy wood" images...(I'm experimenting with creating different looks.) 

Anyhow, they all live here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Hi everyone,

I've added about 100 new texture images. You'll find them on the following pages:

TXR - BRICK - (some new seamless "fantasy" bricks)

TXR - GROUND - (stones that could be used for riverbeds, railroad beds, etc.)

TXR - METAL - (both standard and seamless)

TXR - ROCK/STONE - (lots of cool rock textures, both standard and seamless...realistic as well as fantasy creations)

TXR - VEGETATION - (some cool ground cover that has a surreal look)

Enjoy!

Hi everyone,

I just began a new page of cool Sci-Fi texture images. Give it a look:

http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

I'll be adding many more images, including skins for creatures, aliens, etc.

Any requests? 

Btw, I've also had folks ask about how to credit me for my images. Please simply list me and my website under "Textures" in your credits section...there's no need to identify which images are mine...unless you really want to.  :-)

Anyhow, I think this is going to evolve into a really cool page. Hope it's helpful!

Hi everyone,

A bunch of cool new stone images are ready. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/

Hi everyone,

This week's new images are all seamless so they can be tiled if need be.

The first group might be useful as sci-fi backgrounds.  Feel free to scale them, mix with other textures or edit as needed.
http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

The second bunch are stone textures. 
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/

Please note: On all of my texture pages, the seamless images are grouped below the standard ones so make sure to scroll down...(WAY down on the rock/stone page.)

Anyhow, I hope some of them are helpful. Have a great week!

I've just uploaded about 70 new seamless metal textures. All are 2048X2048. Some have a "camo" look and might work well for military-themed objects. Others have intriguing patterns that might look cool in fantasy-based things. And some are just plain weird looking, but what the heck...give them a look. Hopefully some of them will be helpful.

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

(Scroll down...they live toward the bottom of the page.)

More are on the way.  :-)

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded about 20 additional seamless metal texture images to finish out the set from last week. Each is 2048X2048. For anyone who's interested, they all came from a retired DC-7 aircraft. I Hope some of them will be helpful.

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

(Scroll down...they live about half way down the page.)

Have a good weekend!

As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Next week I'll begin adding distressed paper textures which should (hopefully) look really cool.

Have a great weekend! :-)

Hi Eric,

I just wanted to say "thank you" for uploading and sharing the music and images you create. It's a tremendous resource. I just used one of the wood textures on a graphic for our improv team, Room 604. I was going to upload the final piece, but I guess uploads are prohibited. I'll send you a link once I get it up on my site.

Hi everyone,

As promised, I've added about 50 distressed paper textures. They might be useful for maps, backgrounds and other things.

I hope some of them are helpful.  :-)

They are here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-bark/

I hope some of them are helpful.

Btw, my Soundimage Facebook page has been giving me trouble, so I've started a personal one:

I've just uploaded over 100 new stone and metal texture images, standard and seamless, that I took at a couple of archaeological sites over the weekend. I think a lot of the stone textures could work well for VFX....(castles and other structures.)  

You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/


Have a good week!  :-)

Greetings!

I've uploaded about 100 new fabric texture images on my TXR - FABRIC page. They are all seamless, 2048X2048 and ready for tiling.

New fabric types include Leather, Rayon, Metal Linens, Dyed Acrylics and various weaves.

They might be useful in VFX for clothes for characters, furniture coverings, carpets, or anything else you can think of.

You'll find them here:

I've opened a fur textures page and uploaded about 70 images, both seamless and standard, to get it started. Some of them might be useful for other things, like carpets, rugs, etc. Some also have funky weaves so I included them for fun.

You'll find them here:
