Highly Useful Abstract Textures/Backgrounds

Textures are used more and more in web design, graphic design and photo manipulation.

Sometimes you need a specific style of texture, such as metal, wood, fabric, etc., but many times an abstract texture fits beautifully with your project.

This collection of textures have been selected as those that will work well both as a texture and as a background – depending upon your project’s requirement.

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).
