Building a Library of Images for Everyone

Postby Eric Matyas » Wed May 10, 2017 3:59 pm

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 titles, backgrounds, visual effects and other things. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

Sound Image

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

A link to your TXR pages would be helpful!

Here's his main page: http://soundimage.org/ You will see the TXR pages down towards the bottom of the index. I guess he didn't add the website here because he is a long-time contributor of the music files in a separate thread here, and each addition has links to his website.

Thanks, Ken!

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. :-)

Thanks Eric. The parchment ones on that page will be particularly useful to me as I tend to use that effect a lot in a number of my backward-looking projects... Backward in time, I mean -- old buildings, that sort of thing.

I've uploaded a bunch of cool new metal, stone and bark texture images, both seamless and standard.

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:

Have a good week! :-)

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:

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:

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

I hope some of them are useful! :

You're very welcome!

I've uploaded a bunch of new texture images, both seamless and standard, on the following pages:

TXR - Brick

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

TXR - Metal

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

TXR - Wood

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

If anyone happens to need a couple of distressed wooden door images, they are on my TXR - WOOD page as well. I think they look really cool. As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Btw, fur images on on their way...stay tuned! :

You're very welcome!

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:

Slightly off-topic and slightly related, but does anyone know how this relates to design patents and copyright? I was reading a bit about how you can patent your own designs, both in the physical world and in the digital. And I'm curious as to what it means for the ownership of the design if I use a texture from this database?
