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 are all original...all my own work. I think a lot of them could be made into cool textures for games. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

http://soundimage.org/

The images are on my "TXR" pages.

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

    @Eric Matyas These are fabulous, and so many in each set! These must have taken hours of work to get them to tile accurately. Very nice sharp photography too?

    Great stuff.

    You're all very welcome! I've been working on a film the past week, but I'll be out and about searching for new images. If you have any requests, I can keep an eye out. Let me know. :-)

    I've got a bunch of new fantasy stone and metal images ready...both standard and seamless. I think they look pretty cool. Make sure to left click on them to see the full sized images. You'll find them here:

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

    I'll be out and about this week searching for new textures to photograph. If anyone has any requests for certain types of images, I'll be happy to keep my eyes open for them. Just let me know. :-)

    Hi everyone,

    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/

    Again, 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!

    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!

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    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!

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    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!

    Eric

    Sci-fi is pretty cool.

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    Thanks, guys, I hope some of them are helpful.

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

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

    Have a great week!

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    Hi everyone,

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

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

    The second bunch are stone textures and could be useful for walls or other structures.
    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!

    Hi everyone,

    I've uploaded about 50 new metal texture images. Feel free to edit them as needed. You'll find them here:

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

    I hope some of them are helpful!

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    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. :-)

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    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!

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    Greetings!

    I've uploaded about 150 new texture images, seamless and standard. As always, feel free to edit as needed. You'll find them here:

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

    Paper textures (for maps, backgrounds, etc.) are on their way as well. Hopefully I'll have a brand new page full of them by next week. :-)

  • Eric+MatyasEric Matyas United StatesPosts: 235

    I just opened a new page of paper textures that might be useful for maps, backgrounds and other things:

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

    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 everyone,

    I've just uploaded about 130 seamless fabric texture images onto a brand new page:

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

    Hopefully some of them will be useful for clothes and other things. As always, feel free to edit as needed.
