I spent some time in an old industrial park over the weekend and was able to snap shots of over 150 industrial textures. They are mostly brick, but there are also wood, metal, and quit a few with various pipes and things in them. The lighting was pretty good, so most of these grungy textures worked out. There are some cement and gravel textures in there as well. Hope you enjoy these free textures!

Recently, I've been cleaning up the texturemate website a bit. The social media share buttons have been cleaned up. The share button service has also been switched to one that works better. Unfortunately, all counts are reset to zero though. The site in general should be faster overall and provide quicker downloads of free textures!

Well, it's been awhile. I finally had some time to upload some new free textures! Now that summer is coming to an end, I should have more time to be able to add new design resources to texturemate.
