Textures are used more often than one may think and in fact they are essential building blocks for designers. The reason why most people are not aware that textures are being used everywhere is that textures usually remain in the background or fade into other elements, supporting the overall design. This way textures are used to create a more realistic ore authentic atmosphere.
How you use textures is entirely up for you but I’m sure you can’t resist to take a closer look at the selection you will find below.
In this article I have selected more than70 great textures on Flickr, all with Creative Commons license. I have also included a stunning list of texture resources that you can’t afford to miss.
Before you use any of the textures make sure you check the license carefully.

Did you know that you can search on flickr using a filter that only return material under Creative Commons license? It’s simple and effective and if you add a texture tag too you will get the list I did when writing this post. This is how it looks.
And then some textures please!….
