29 Most Useful Texture Packs of 2008

The trend of using texture in web design has been around for a while, but in 2008 it was taken to a new level. Not only were there many beautiful sites launched that made use of textures, but there were also lots of useful texture packs created. I’ve taken the time to sort through them and hand pick the ones that I feel stand out in usefulness and beauty.

    This is a great collection. I didn’t know half the textures you showcased. Bookmarked and stumbled it for future reference. Thank you for including some of my textures as well!

    Also saw the link via Smashing Mag and popurls. =) Thanx for sharing these terrific textures! I love quality textures, they’re like wonderful little swatches of artistic intensity.

    I’ve also made many seamless textures in a variety of styles from painterly to grungy to outright surreal which I welcome you to use… even for commercial purposes. 🙂 ENJOY http://torley.com/textures

    great textures collection!

    it will be great if there is an information below each texture about their licence.

    oh ya, color grunge textures seem to have a wrong link — it points to vintage grunge textures link.

    Holy crap.

    That’s so much stuff. This is an awesome collection. I am consistently amazed by the graciousness of people on the internet.

    Genial, buen post, gracias por el buen aporte, de verdad. Son muy buenos las texturas de las paginas linkiadas. Thanks my friend!

    Most of the links I tried to follow didn’t work. Might be an idea to remove the ones that go to broken links.
    Atleast 6 are no more.
