A seamless texture

A seamless texture

Have you ever used a background texture in your projects, presentations, wep pages, etc.? Most of us did.

If you’re in a rush, and you need something quick, you can easily google it and find online some great resources for textures and patterns.
One for all, I could suggest subtlepatterns.com where there’s an incredible amount of high quality  tilable textured patterns, and best of all they are free to use (as long as you keep the proper credits!! Pretty fair, I’d say)

But you have another option: GIMP.
Yes, using this great free software you can have your own textures in just a few simple steps, and furthermore, making your textures seamless is just a click away!

Want to know how? Check this excellent tutorial from Vicki Wenderlich: she explains all the steps in a clear way, and she’ll easily lead you to your first seamless texture.
