    These are wonderful! If I were to see a 500+ Pack of the same quality, I would sign up for a pro account for those, alone!

    This collection is a great source of inspiration. Keep up the great work!

    As always, a very nice collection! For me, subtle backgrounds are the way to go. Throw in a little texture but nothing too crazy.

    I’ve been sort of enamored with light effects and textured backgrounds so this is a great addition to my collection.

    I’d like to also throw in the infamous SquidFingers patterns: http://www.squidfingers.com/patterns/
    They’re SMALLER, but seamless, and I’ve loved them for years!

    Sorry for the NEWBIE question…I love these wallpapers, but how do I use them ‘seamlessly’.

    They’re quite large, do I have to crop them? But I have to crop them in such a way that they’ll be seamless when repeating it across the page right?

    Thanks for any advice,
    Craig

    P.S. I know how to repeat images across x & y axis via CSS…it’s just the part in Photoshop that’s got me stumped. :)

      Not a newbie question at all. You really have two options:

      You can size the image down, but of course this will make your pattern smaller. This may be something that you will have to play with to see if the patterns still look suitable for you at smaller sizes.

      Then as you mentioned, you could re-crop a smaller section out of the pattern, but you have to make sure it is still seamless. This also will require a little trial and error. Using guides in Photoshop should help you get the edges correct.

      Hope that helps.

    What about a little application or Illustrator / Photoshop plugin that could help creating pattern with an automatic live tiling preview on the screen ?

    Indeed these are some great patterns and techniques for creating patterns.

    Hopefully they don’t get overused and integrate with in the design well…

    I definitely need some background improvement on my site, but I’m looking for something a little more simple. Perhaps a minimal color texture? In either case, these are some great examples and certainly in style.

    As I recently wrote on mysitemyway.com (back then regarding your icons sets) you are one the best resources for the not-so-wealthy freelancer on the internet I know of. Everything that comes from your site itself (e.g. glossy orbs icons, fire red grunge patterns,…) is of very good quality and I thank you – big time – for your generosity.
