    Sites that are good for textures and patterns

    Image*After is a biggie and I think it’s been around for a long time. This has photographs of everything under the sun as well as specific textures.

    [​IMG]Schizoolicious is a german site (well it’s written in German) and it seems to be filled with patterns uploaded by several different designers. They range from very subtle to mad-in-your-face stuff.
    Citrus Moon
    is a blog with new patterns set up almost daily. They have a lot of tiles suitable for backgrounds.

    [​IMG]Squidfingers site has over 150 tiles which make up nice backgrounds. Again they range from the subtle to “must wear sunglasses” style.

    [​IMG]Texture Library is another site chock full of natural textures like wood, stone and fur. The quality is excellent, the only downside is that the images tend to be a bit small. Still a great resource though.

    PicFinder and MagazineArt

    PicFinder is a search engine for free stock photography that you can use commercially. It searches sites such as Image:After , MorgueFile and the great, making it that little bit easier and quicker to find images.

    It also returns results for paid stock too. is a huge database of magazine covers from the 19th and 20th century. It takes a bit of rooting around to find stuff, but there are tons of lovely covers for inspiration.
