Textures can be some of the most valuable resources in a graphic designer’s arsenal. They can be used to create backgrounds, to add subtle textures to elements within a design, and even to rough up text and give it a grungy, dirty effect.
One of the great things about textures is that no two items are ever quite alike. Although there are thousands of textures out there that are available for purchase or free download, there is always room for other quality textures.
If you’re the type of designer that creates your own textures, from photos or scans, there are always other unique textures available from other designers and photographers that can serve as a complement to the ones you’ve created for yourself. And if you don’t create your own textures, you’re sure to love finding quality sources of textures that you can use.
Here we’ll showcase 40 different texture sets that are not only high quality, but they are also free to download.
Free Vintage Seamless Textures
There are so many newly released icon sets which are free to download and use in your own projects. Building a website application will take a lot of time and patience. If you are using a CMS or backend programming framework then it might shave off some time. But overall you will be dedicated to finishing your projects in a decent timeframe. It is worth taking any help which can hasten the completion date.
I feel these small user interface icon sets will provide a lot of benefit to web developers. Creating webapps specifically for mobile and desktop computers are not easy to design. Why should you have to make all your own icons from scratch? It becomes a lot easier when you know exactly what you are looking for. Check out these freebie icon sets and see if you can locate designs which may work well in your own projects.
With a quick Google search you will find a ton of handy CSS2/CSS3 code snippets. But what about pre-built CSS web interfaces? There are some cool widgets and samples out there, but it can be difficult finding great high-quality releases. I think developers really treasure open source codes for the fact that it saves a lot of time putting together more complicated websites.
In this showcase gallery I have organized 34 outstanding and free CSS code snippets. All of these examples provide some type of website interface element such as forms, buttons, tables, switches, pagination, and other common items. Be sure to check out the gallery listing to get a better idea of what you may be able to use in your own website(s). All items are provided by CSSFlow which you can download for free and include on any number of projects.
In the past we have written on Photoshop actions for touchups related to photography enhancements. But it is common for designers to release their actions for free attribution on certain projects. And many of these newer releases are difficult to track down without scouring the Internet for links!
Thus I have put together this collection of 55 fantastic new Adobe Photoshop actions for photo enthusiasts. Graphics editors will adore many of these which provide a solution for generating clean effects in many different photos. Plus each of these examples is completely free to download from the source! Most of the actions posted are from DeviantArt which keeps download links in the sidebar area. But spend some time poking around the showcase below and see if you can locate any actions which look particularly interesting.
