Tiling patterns

For the past four years I’ve been experimenting with different ways to make interesting and attractive repeating designs out of photographs. Would you like some to use? Last night I put 115 of them on a free tiling patterns page, to see what other people will find to do with them.

They’re 300 pixels on a side, which is plenty for some applications: Photoshop textures, CD covers, giftwrap, scrapbooks, web design, decoration in 3D environments (Second Life, video games), posters, bookmarks, and design elements in larger compositions. In web pages you may want to reduce that to 150 or 100 pixels and cut the contrast if you want to lay text over it.

Please feel free to use them as you see fit, and alter them as needed for your application. If you find them useful, I’d love to hear about it.
