Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Resolution Sand Textures 3


10 Jun

We’ve got a fresh batch of FREE high-resolution sand texture images for you this week. Given the infinite possibilities afforded by nature and the waves spilling onto the shore, it’s no wonder we’ve been able to bring you a third set of unique and interesting textures related to it. We even captured the clever work of some local crabs cleaning out their burrows!

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-resolution Sand Textures


03 Jun

Armed with our 100mm f2.8L macro lens (150mm equiv. with the 7D) we headed out to our local beach and shot some different grades of sand up nice and close. Even we were surprised by the beauty to be found in the tiny particles. Check them out! We’ve done our best to get corner-corner sharpness, so you at home have the greatest flexibility in how you treat the images in your design projects.

Wicked Wednesdays: FREE High-Res Moss and Lichen Textures


18 May

This week’s textures are all of moss and lichen, commonly found on rocks in damp places like the bush or a shady cliff face – which exactly where we found all six textures here. They’re of different types of moss and lichen… basically as many different types as we could find without jumping a plane to the Amazon.

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