Blogs for all of us
I have called the post this today because I have become involved in a new blog that I think could be beneficial to all of us, well those of us who like to use textures.
The blog is called Public Domain Textures and is a site where you can take textures, post textures etc. The idea is that the textures on this site are for anyone to use free of charge. If you put your textures there then you are allowing them to be used in the public domain and you lose all copyright to them. It goes the other way of of course, if you take textures from there you can’t then try and sell them or claim you have copyright for them.
I have already contributed a few textures, here is a gallery of the ones I have done.
I have a folder with over 300 textures so I am sure I will be contributing a lot more. Of course, not all 300, but some more. Textures can be a great thing to add to images, and you have seen me using them a lot lately on my portrait images.
So I hope you will all go and take a look, Public Domain Textures. It is still in the early stages so we need people to contribute, and there is a page there about the conditions and where to email you textures.
It is hoped that in the future that there will be some posts on how to use them, how to make your own and ways of changing the texures. It should prove to be a great resource for anyone wanting to use and make textures. There will also be scope for people to show off their images that have used textures from Public Domain Textures.
