Brick Textures

The textures I offer for free use on this site are the results of my own need for suitable textures. I do tend to use textures and backgrounds for a variety of purposes – collage, photo backgrounds, sometimes 3D work, and occasionally as stationery.  My hope is that you’ll find them useful too. These brick textures have proved to be useful for me in many different situations, some for rendering in 3D (like Bryce and Daz3D, both of which I own), but some have been useful in making a blended background for a collage. Pretty much all of these (photographic textures mostly, but a few “created” ones) were taken in and around my home town, although two of them came from the town of Rome, Georgia … I’ll gather texture photos just about anywhere I go!

If you are a beginner, try creating some of your own texture files, starting with some of these and manipulating them into something different by using one of your own photos and one of our textures,  and then adding your own touches or creative process – from one free texture you could turn out three or four files for your own use. Make your own portrait backgrounds, use them for book or cd covers, create business cards or scrapbooking papers – be creative and have fun.

To download the texture files, click the thumbnail. The full size download opens in a new window. Right click, and select “save as” to save the file to your own computer.
