How do you find the images you use for seamless textures? Currently I’ve mainly been searching google images, filtered by free for use, but it’s not ideal.
Are there any programs I could use to make my own? Or plugins for photoshop etc? The main thing I’d like is something to roughen up / grunge / scratch / dirt a texture. That way, I could create a simple texture (either drawn or in some 3d software), then make it look “real” by adding the dirt effects. I haven’t found any way to do this with photoshop other than brushes which end up getting repetitive if you’re using a limited bunch of free brushes.
Or, any sites for royalty free seamless textures?
Failing that, any sites or programs that will figure out how to loop a texture to make it seamless? Similar to how Photoshops content aware fill works except applied to creating seamless patterns.
Thanks for any help
