High-Res Red Rocks Texture Pack

High-Res Red Rocks Texture Pack leading Image.

Textures are fun to work with and can add realism and an organic feel to your design. Here’s a set of textures from the Red Rock Canyon in Nevada. Feel free to use them for any purpose (commercial works or otherwise) except for redistribution. Though attribution is not required, it’s highly-appreciated.

There are 6 textures included in this texture pack. Each image is large-scale (2,896 x 1,944 pixels) and high-resolution, so it’ll give you the ultimate flexibility in usage. You can scale them down to fit your artwork or just take certain areas of a texture that you’re interested in.

If you don’t like the red color and you just want the rough, grungy textures – desaturate (Image > Adjustments > Desaturate) them in Photoshop (or your favorite image editor) and experiment with different blending options and Layer modes to get the desired effect.


Clicking on each image will redirect you to its Flickr page where you can download numerous sizes. Alternatively, you can browse the Red Rocks Texture Pack Flickr set that I’ve set up.

I don’t know, but these seem useless in the days of web 2.0.

The texture idea is way to web 1.0 and I have no idea how anyone’s gonna integrate these into their existing designs without looking naive.

Thanks for the compliments everyone, and I have a few more good textures and vector packs to release in the near-future, so stay tuned.

@Yang Yang: I beg to differ, I think there’s a significant trend right now that opposes a lot of the “Web 2.0″ shiny, glossy look-and-feel. Even then, adding a few touches of textures in your designs can make it stand out if executed right.

I definitely think there is a time and a place for a texture like this. Also, web 2.0 is such a buzz word, don’t use it anymore to describe “good” web design, kthxbai.
