Building library of free images for video editing!
 
Hi everyone,

I've been building a library of images that you are welcome to use in your projects. They might be useful under titles, for visual effects or anything else you can think of. They are all original...all my own work. All I ask is to be attributed as indicated on my homepage:

http://soundimage.org/

The images are on my "TXR" pages (for "Textures.")

I'm adding new ones all the time, so be sure to check back often. I sincerely hope that some of them are useful. Any and all constructive feedback is welcome and always appreciated. :-)

All the best,

Eric

Hi everyone,

I photographed a lot of cool textures last week that I'm sure could be used in all kinds of things. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-brick/
http://soundimage.org/txr-concrete/
http://soundimage.org/txr-ground/
http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation/
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

If anyone has requests for certain types of images, I'll be happy to keep my eyes open for them. Just let me know. :-)

Have a good week,

Eric

Eric_Matyas 01-31-2017 11:42 PM

Hi everyone,

A whole bunch of new seamless texture images are ready for you on the following pages:

TXR - Brick
TXR - Concrete/Pavement
TXR - Foliage
TXR - Ground
TXR - Stone
TXR - Wood

Feel free to generate maps from them (displacement, specular, etc) as needed. If you need me to create them custom for you, drop me an email...(my email address is at the bottom of my homepage.)

I hope some of them are helpful!

Eric

While interesting, and surely helpful to some, I'm wondering what you see as the common usage.
- DVD, Blu-ray menus?
- Fade in/out titles with overlaid text?

What else?

I may have some suggestions for you. :)

BTW, you're using a really crappy web host: EIG. Specifically, the EIG brand JustHost. If you ever have any issues, contact kpmedia or use the Contact Us form, and we'll try to help you get into a better situation. Your project is an admirable one, and I'd hate to see it harmed from bad hosting.

Eric_Matyas 02-08-2017 09:42 AM

Thanks, I appreciate it. So far, my hosting has been fine, but I'll certainly keep that in mind.

As a filmmaker, I'm, always on the lookout for images that can be used for visual effects...like digital matte paintings, 2D and 3D animation and as well as other things. And, as you said, they can be used in menus and under titles as well. :-)

Speaking of which...

I've opened a new page of free sky images that might come in handy in your projects:
http://soundimage.org/txr-skies/

I also added a bunch of new wood images here:
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Eric_Matyas 02-15-2017 08:26 AM

This week's new free images are on my TXR - WOOD page. At the top, I've added a bunch of smooth wood images that might come in handy for interiors. Some have dents and other signs of wear.

If you scroll down (way down) to Seamless Textures, you'll find about 20 "fantasy wood" images...(I'm experimenting with creating different looks.)

Anyhow, they all live here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Winsordawson 02-21-2017 12:58 AM

Thanks for the contributions. Why don't you use ads on your webpage? I skimmed your image license, but is it uniquely your own terms or are the images registered under a Creative Commons license? That would make it easier to determine exact usage.

Thanks for checking out my site...I appreciate it!

To answer your questions, I really don't want distracting ads on my site so I keep it as a donation-driven one. And my license is identical to "CC by" except that I prohibit my work from being used in projects that are obscene in nature.

Anyhow...

I've added about 100 new texture images. You'll find them on the following pages:

TXR - BRICK - (some new seamless "fantasy" bricks)

TXR - GROUND - (stones that could be used for riverbeds, railroad beds, etc.)

TXR - METAL - (both standard and seamless)

TXR - ROCK/STONE - (lots of cool rock textures, both standard and seamless...realistic as well as fantasy creations)

TXR - VEGETATION - (some cool ground cover that has a surreal look)

Enjoy!

Eric_Matyas 03-07-2017 06:52 PM

Hi everyone,

I just began a new page of cool Sci-Fi texture images. Give it a look:

http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

I'll be adding many more images, including skins for creatures, aliens, etc.

Any requests?

Btw, I've also had folks ask about how to credit me for my images. Please simply list me and my website under "Textures" in your credits section...there's no need to identify which images are mine...unless you really want to. :-)

Anyhow, I think this is going to evolve into a really cool page. Hope it's helpful!


Eric

Eric_Matyas 03-19-2017 06:08 PM

Hi everyone,

A bunch of cool new stone images are ready. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Eric_Matyas 03-26-2017 09:58 PM

Hi everyone,

This week's new images are all seamless so they can be tiled if need be.

The first group might be useful as sci-fi backgrounds. Feel free to scale them, mix with other textures or edit as needed.
http://soundimage.org/txr-sci-fi/

The second bunch are stone textures.
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/

Please note: On all of my texture pages, the seamless images are grouped below the standard ones so make sure to scroll down...(WAY down on the rock/stone page.)

Anyhow, I hope some of them are helpful. Have a great week!

Eric_Matyas 04-03-2017 07:26 AM

A bunch of new images are ready:

http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

http://soundimage.org/txr-bark/


I hope some of them are helpful!

Eric_Matyas 04-20-2017 08:53 AM

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded about 50 new metal texture images. Feel free to edit them as needed. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

I hope some of them are helpful!

Eric_Matyas 04-28-2017 10:19 AM

I've just uploaded about 70 new seamless metal textures. All are 2048X2048. Some have a "camo" look and might work well for military-themed objects. Others have intriguing patterns that might look cool in fantasy-based things. And some are just plain weird looking, but what the heck...give them a look. Hopefully some of them will be helpful.

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

(Scroll down...they live toward the bottom of the page.)

More are on the way. :-)

Eric_Matyas 05-04-2017 06:11 AM

Hi everyone,

I've uploaded about 20 additional seamless metal texture images to finish out the set from last week. Each is 2048X2048. For anyone who's interested, they all came from a retired DC-7 aircraft. I Hope some of them will be helpful.

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/

(Scroll down...they live about half way down the page.)

Have a good weekend!

Eric_Matyas 05-10-2017 09:52 AM

Greetings!

I've uploaded about 150 new texture images, seamless and standard. As always, feel free to edit as needed. You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-vegetation/
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

Paper textures (for maps, backgrounds, etc.) are on their way as well. Hopefully I'll have a brand new page full of them by next week. :-)

Eric_Matyas 05-18-2017 09:14 AM

I just opened a new page of paper textures that might be useful for maps, backgrounds and other things:

http://soundimage.org/txr-paper/

As always, feel free to edit as needed.

Next week I'll begin adding distressed paper textures which should (hopefully) look really cool.

Have a great weekend! :-)

Eric_Matyas 05-31-2017 04:49 AM

Hi everyone,

As promised, I've added about 50 distressed paper textures. They might be useful for maps, backgrounds and other things.

Btw, my Soundimage Facebook page has been giving me trouble, so I've started a personal one:

https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100017638394276

Have a good week! :-)

Eric_Matyas 06-27-2017 10:34 AM

I've just uploaded over 100 new stone and metal texture images, standard and seamless, that I took at a couple of archaeological sites over the weekend. I think a lot of the stone textures could work well for VFX....(castles and other structures.)

You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone/
http://soundimage.org/txr-metal/


Have a good week! :-)

Eric_Matyas 07-05-2017 09:27 AM

Greetings!

I've uploaded about 100 new fabric texture images on my TXR - FABRIC page. They are all seamless, 2048X2048 and ready for tiling.

New fabric types include Leather, Rayon, Metal Linens, Dyed Acrylics and various weaves.

They might be useful in VFX for clothes for characters, furniture coverings, carpets, or anything else you can think of.

You'll find them here:

http://soundimage.org/txr-fabric/

Nothing to use them on yet, but I've saved a few of your recent images in a library folder. The colors were nice, and the steel textures were interesting.
