These textures may be
freely used as backgrounds, textures in 3D scenes, parts of images, etc
but they may not be redistributed as (or part of) a texture collection.
The textures are divided into the following categories and an attempt
has been made not to burden any single page with too many images. Be
aware that some textures can be interpreted in a number of ways.
If you find any of these textures useful then why not improve
the collection by contributing some of your own.
In order to submit your textures to this collection, email
myself for further details or simply
attach the texture images in an email.
Note: Not all of these textures tile (at least not automatically).
By clicking on any texture you will be given a page with the texture
as a tiled background image where you can visually inspect the result
of a straightforward tiling. Mirror tiling will need to be arranged
by yourselves, ie: WWW browsers don't yet support it.
