It’s that time again, folks! Wicked Wednesdays is here to brighten your creative day with six FREE high-resolution texture images of glorious stone and rock formations from our local beach. All images are at full, level-12 jpeg resolution, shot with a 100mm f2.8L Canon macro lens.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Macro Textures


17 Jul

Wicked Wednesdays is here again, folks! One more lot of FREE high-resolution macro photographic texture images for your enjoyment. They’re a little more obscure and random this time around, with some shots of sea shells, radiator fins, sand-smoothed broken glass, an electric guitar’s selector switch and of course, more wool! We hope you are able to find uses for them all. If we find the time to get out and shoot some more soon, we’ll bring you more in the future. Feel free to send requests.

All images were shot on a Canon 7D with a 100mm f2.8L macro lens, using several shots of each object for focus stacking.

Simply CLICK HERE to view the gallery of six images or right-click on the thumbnails below to download the images direct. As always, these are FREE for commercial and personal creative use, however you may not resell or redistribute or claim them as your own. Enjoy!

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Wool Textures 3


24 Oct

This will be our last wool texture-fest until after the new year, but never fear, we’ll have some more cracker shots coming your way after then. For now, you can enjoy another six totally FREE high-resolution texture images of wool – this time in knitted form. The wool is a combination of pure wool and wool/alpaca blends in a typical garter stitch (for all the knitting fans, and Google robots out there). The shots were taken with a Canon 7D (as always), with a single Speedlite flash bounced off a nearby wall for light.

However, you may not resell, repackage or redistribute these textures or generally pass them off as your own for monetary gain etc. Use them in your design projects, but don’t use them for commercial gain.

Wicked… Fridays: Random FREE High-Res Textures Day!


22 Jul

Thanks to a hacker, we were unable to bring you your weekly dose of totally FREE high-resolution texture images on Wednesday, but here we are bringing you a set of textures on Friday. So, we’re a couple days late, but we’ve got some fresh ones for you this week, theme-free in glorious HD and ready to be used in your next design project.

It’s a bit of a hodge podge this week, but we really just wanted to remain consistent and bring you some stuff you could potentially make good use of in your design or photographic projects and we think you’ll find something of interest here – even if it’s just to make yourself a shiny new desktop wallpaper or three.

As always, Hosking Industries high-resolution texture images are FREE for personal and commercial use.
