My previous post, Where to Find Free Website Graphics, listed some of my favourite websites for downloading free images, backgrounds and other graphical resources. This follow up post contains a few more suggested sources of freebies. These ones are perhaps a little less well known and may not have such a great selection – but they are worth a look.
As always, you download items from the internet at your own risk and you should check the license of any resource you find to ensure that you are allowed to use it on your site.
These web designers have provided a lovely selection of free, tileable patterns and textures at elemisfreebies.com, including some unusual, realistic textures.
Here are examples of one of the patterns, and one of the tileable textures, used as background images.
There are several free backgrounds, icons and photographs on the Graphic Burger website.
These holographic background images are pretty.
Magpie Paper Works
This site is worth mentioning because of a couple of free packs of seamless paper textures.
The freebies section of the Pixel Buddha website includes some items that are available only to Plus members (who pay a monthly subscription of $10) but there are also some truly free resources, including these tropical images.
The Fuzzimo website provides some of the nicest free seamless fabric, leather and cork textures that I’ve found. There is also a selection of unusual downloads, including post it notes, drawing pins, safety pins and an embossed label generator.
