18 Essential Grunge Textures

Today I'm releasing what I feel is one of my best and most useful grunge texture sets to date. Before making the set I determined that I would create three different levels of grunge: subtle, medium, and heavy. I tried to include a variety of all three types in the set, so whether you're looking for a little texture or a lot you should be able to find one that works.

The set includes 18 high-res textures. They were created by combining many different images together in Photoshop, all while playing with layers, levels, overlays, and a lot more. If you're more interested in the process I created a tutorial on it here.

Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

Thank you for some very nice textures. I'm experimenting with using some of your textures with some of my photographs. So far nothing really worth sharing. Nothing to do with your textures, everything to do with my photoshop skills, or more to the point, lack there of.

Regards,
John
