Top 20 Royalty Free Texture Sites

Textures are an important asset to any designer whether it’s physical or visual. Here at PSDCovers we tend to offer faux 3D rendered products that require a lot of up front 2D design and texture work prior to being rendered. Unfortunately creating 2D designs or textures can be a very exhaustive process when starting from scratch, especially if this is your main focus.

What we do is spend our energy in creating hi-resolution Photoshop Cover Actions and try to limit the amount of time we spend making textures since it’s not the primary focus, or even deliverable, for our Cover Actions.

So the following is a short list of sites we like to visit for texture content we can potentially use in our development of Cover Actions.
