Over the years, we’ve had a number of Web sites in different areas that were all managed on the Graphics Unleashed Facebook page. Two months ago we rolled out a separate Facebook page for Vehicle Templates Unleashed. Now we have created a Facebook page for Seamless Textures Unleashed and we encourage you to like the new page.
For those who aren’t familiar with seamless textures in general, I’ve give a brief description. They can come in different sized tiles that when placed side-by-side will form a seamless fill as you can see in the example provided here. Seamless Textures Unleashed provides two types of collections. Lite collections include all seamless textures as 256 pixel square tiles. For those working on the Web or other low-resolution projects, they work perfectly. Pro collections includes square tiles sized at 256, 512, 1024 and 2048 pixels in PNG files. Each size is created independently and is not scaled from another size. For those needing details, you’ll want the Pro collections!
What software supports these seamless textures? Virtually any software you can use for design. Yes, that includes ALL versions of CorelDRAW that work with PNG files. My memory is pretty vague, but I think CorelDRAW 6 (released in 1995) was the first version to support PNG files. So if you have a version of CorelDRAW from the last 20+ years, you can use them! Corel PHOTO-PAINT also supports them for the same time frame.
You can also use Adobe Creative Suite software such as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. They can be used for backgrounds on Web sites with most every Web design platform. Throw in 3D rendering software and even home-level design software and they can be used most anywhere you need to use them.
As of this writing, we have released 34 unique collections of seamless textures with each collection having more than 100 different seamless fills. We are expecting to release ten or more collections in 2020 to give you even more choices. So if you haven’t visited Seamless Textures Unleashed lately, give a look at the available collections. Note that you can download a free PDF for each collection showing exactly what files are included.
