Title: CG Textures ~ Resource site
Post by: sidherose on January 19, 2014, 08:44:55 PM
Hi all,

Don't know if this has been posted before or not. If so, then here it is again!

The link below is to a site called CGTextures. There is a free membership and with that, you can download 15 MB of textures, backgrounds and such things a day. I've gotten lots of useful images from here that I've used often. It's a great resource!

http://www.cgtextures.com/ (http://www.cgtextures.com/)

Enjoy :)

They really do have a lot of useful things there to use, including .pngs of some trees, plants, flowers and food. It's a great place!

Yes, it is a great resource. I signed up for membership. They have a great set of tutorials on Photoshop, specifically the Blend if tool on the property panel. Didn't know anything about that. Never got taught that in school. Going to try it soon.

I've gotten textures form there myself for game models and terrains. I also swipe Sandy's camera and take photos outside of things I need. Snow, dirt, rocks, etc...etc...

Until she catches me and takes the camera away.

Before it was 15Mo by day.
Now, you have 15 points like credit for each 24 hours. More the free texture of the day.
And it looks like from recently they have HDRi packs (skies and spheres).

They have now 3d objects, but not for free - you must buy points.

In the same time, you have always 15 points by day.
But the free texture (even for non suscribers) on their homepage no longer exists since at least one week; since they changed the homepage presentation.

Yup....saw that earlier on.....didn't know if anyone else in here went there besides me of late LOLOL

At least me  :tearlaugh: I discovered that site only once I used my own textures for almost all parts of the Observatory  :shrug: From the utility to check what we have in links on forum time to time :psycho:

:panic: I have some sites to check daily, others weekly. But if I try more, I'll :explode:
 :tearlaugh:

More, some links, like the one gave these days by Sir Knight are unknown to me. Maybe that save me justly to become  :odd: (at least to be more than already I am)

Post by: thelufias on March 18, 2018, 04:34:08 PM
Well, next on my agenda are the links I have to sites I visited WAY BACK WHEN....just to see what is working and what is not.....the "Not's" will be investigated in case names were changed....and I'll check on the Way Back When machine to see if anything is listed there.....

So it should be an interesting task.  Haven't been in the "Comics Scanning" mood of late.

If I see some that we haven't already mentioned I'll send the links to you to check them out....

Ok, but between so many links we have, I'm even not sure to find my way  :tearlaugh:

Then we'll get lost and make new discoveries as we try to find our way out LOL
