OverviewThe seamless texture comes of age

For years one of the secret weapons used by Digital Juice artists and animators has been our custom collection of seamless textures. Now for the first time, we're letting this treasure trove of possibilities leave home. If you've ever looked at a blank canvas in Photoshop, After Effects, or even in PowerPoint and not known what to do or where to start, the more than 1000 super high-resolution textures in the Texture Toolkit collection are designed just for you. Delivered at a maximum resolution of 4000 x 4000 pixels, most of these textures are also seamless in all directions and many have a built in alpha so they can be layered on top of other images for unique effects.

Long relegated to the "freebie" bin of the web, GOOD textures - particularly high resolution and seamless textures - can actually be hard to find. These long misunderstood workhorses of the creative industry are an essential tool when working with photos, illustrations, videos and animations of any kind. They can be a subtle accent or add a striking look to a hero element but they are rarely the star of the show. Their main job is to add context and subtext to your creations. Whether used alone as a background or mixed with other textures and images to give depth and sophistication, textures can create a mood without saying a word. The right texture can take a simple photo and make it more dramatic or give a simple object the weather-beaten look of a treasured antique.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why do I need seamless textures? Why would I need to tile these textures when they are so large to start with?

When a texture is seamless its use broadens and you have a multitude of new options in how you can use it in print and animation applications. You are    no longer restricted to using it only at a    specific scale and position. The texture    tile can be scaled up or down and used to fill an object or background or it can be layered on top of or below a photograph in a variety of seamless sizes to add realism or a specific effect.

I work mostly on web graphics and don't need large images. How can I get the textures in a more manageable size?

Using our free Juicer software, you can render any of the textures from the Texture Toolkit at whatever size you need in whatever file format you require. When you install the product you can even choose to install only small or medium sized source files instead of the full resolution versions.

         The seamless nature of the majority of the Texture Toolkit textures is essential and it is a key aspect to their usefulness. Just about anyone can create a bad seamless texture. Some computer software can even make some less bad ones. However, most people don't even try, because making a GOOD seamless texture is hard, tedious work. It requires the skill and trained eye of an artist to make a truly seamless and interesting abstract or realistic texture.

A seamless texture is one that can be repeated infinitely without showing any noticeable edge or join between repeating tiles. It can be used to fill as large or as small an area of a graphic as you like. Most seamless textures can tile in both the X and Y directions, while some are designed only to tile horizontally (X), usually across the base or top edge of a graphic area.

In the past, seamless textures were used primarily for desktop wallpaper and web page backgrounds, as well as for adding realism to 3D models and architectural renderings. Nowadays, high resolution textures can be used for a wide variety of design applications including as photo, illustration, animation or video fills and backgrounds, as the base to build a virtual studio or scene for still or motion graphics or as a way to add realistic texture and depth to any part of a designed graphic, whether 2D or 3D, static or moving.
