Hi! It's great that you are providing these textures, what would be even better is if you could provide them in a lossless format instead of as jpeg. TIF files are best for standard textures, and 32bit TGA are best for textures with transparency, because it saves transparency into an alpha channel.

24bit TGA can be used for standard textures instead of TIF, but TIF is preferred. Game designers use mostly TGA files, and they can convert from TIF to TGA easily themselves. People doing 3d rendering can use the TIF file directly. BMP files have high quality but a large file size that's why TIF is preferred.

Hey there,

I'm limited to certain file sizes by my web hosting company. I suggest that when you download them, immediately save them as TIF (or some other lossless format.) If you happen to need a higher quality version of a certain image, feel free to email me and I'll be happy to send it to you. :-)

In the meantime...

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

I've added a bunch of new images:

On the TXR-PAPER page, some really cool covers from journals. Might work for maps, old books, etc.
http://soundimage.org/txr-paper/

On the TXR - WOOD, some new distressed wood.
http://soundimage.org/txr-wood/

I've also opened a new page, TXR - WICKER.
http://soundimage.org/txr-wicker/

Wishing everyone a happy and safe holiday season!

Happy New Year Everyone!

In case you haven't already noticed, I've tried to improve navigation on my site by creating a categorized menu of links to all my pages on the right-hand side of each page. (If you don't immediately see it, scroll down a bit.) I hope it's helpful!

That said, I've uploaded about 40 new free images on the following pages:

TXR - GROUND
http://soundimage.org/txr-ground/

TXR - ROCK/STONE 2
http://soundimage.org/txr-rockstone-2/

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


Have a good week!

Hi everyone,

I shot and uploaded some new concrete images...wet, moldy ones...blech! Might be useful for old water-damaged buildings, statues, etc.

Brand new sound effects and music tracks are on their way as well...I'll be posting those on Thursday on my other thread. In the meantime, if you want daily updates as I create new assets, they are here:
