Hi, I'm doing a tree for a contest I enterd and need a nice seemless texture for the bark. I have looked all over the place and can't find any thing! So if anyone is able to help please do so.:help:


P.S.MUST be free, thanks.

Here are some free high res bark textures. They are not seamless but zou can make them using clone stamp in photosjop.

And if you need to know how to make things seamless, there are tools in Photoshop (for example), but if you don't have that, you can follow my tut...

Or if you happen to own Shake and a copy of Furnace, you can use some really good tiling plugins (F_Tile and F_PixelTexture)

Or you could download GIMP and use the "Make Seamless" filter.

GIMP has a "make seamless" command?

Now that I have that settled, I need a texture for the inner rings.:D (You know the aging rings)

I reckon the best way would be to take your digital camera, buy some wood (or sneak round a shop) and take some pics of the wood types you want. Go to a sawmill (hmmm, if possible) and get some photos of the rings. These could easily then be made into a seamless wood rings texture, or a great bark one!

Just to let you know,

There is a program called Wood Workshop from Spiral Graphics at www.spiralgraphics.biz which is great for wood texturing. They have a FREE version that can be downloaded. I have used it for some of my projects.

I've always been fond of http://textures.forrest.cz - must have started using it about 5 years ago or something?

Darn good general texture resource.
