I've been trying to find some really good, very high resolution indoor textures, mostly wood, but all kinds of stone and tile, too.
Also, looking for good indoor reflection maps and HDR images.
Maybe I'm not using the right keywords or something or maybe I'm just missing what might be right in front of my face, but I can't seem to find anything suitable.
There are alot of freebies, but they're all lo-res, and even so, usually with non-commercial use disclaimers.
I've looked at Marlin Studios, and Dosch. Dosch has some nice stuff, but only ships CD's - I'm hoping to find a downloadable package. Marlin Studios has some nice indoor textures, but the packages have more than I'm interested in.
Really, I'm mostly just looking for a commercial use package of hi-res indoor wood types. I already have alot of nice marble and stone.
AND, I need some good hi-res indoor HDRI and spherical reflection maps. Tired of using the same ones over and over again.
Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you neverko. You're right, the Arroway stuff does look impressive. :) I don't remember them turning up in my searches.

Pete, what is "woodworkshop"?

Looks cool, and I might check it out, but I'm looking for some ready-to-go textures, don't have time to learn new programs. I have a project I need to complete in a month, and I'll probably be spending almost all that time just modeling things.

I've used wood workshop before, and it's extremely easy to use. Took me about 10 minutes to get the hang of it.

Also check out this site: www.cgtextures.com

Textures are free and may be used for commercial purposes. There's just a download limit (15mb per 24 hours).

yes, that one...its really simple and you get exactly the type of wood you need within a few minutes of experimenting, it is far faster than trying to find the right type of texture on the net, and the quality is suprisingly good in a render...

HDRLabs has some very good free HDRI lightprobes - as well as a bunch of other great info on HDR.
