I'm always on the lookout for good textures, as they are pretty subtle but can add a lot of life to your site. Recently I found Tileables ( which looks pretty cool.

Can you recommend any other good sites for textures, or make-your-own-texture tutorials?

Each of these has different licensing requirements so you'll want to make sure to check those before using anything off these sites.

Check out, I think that's what you're looking for

There's a new website I've created that is and will be focused around only free textures and images (without requiring attribution). Some seamless, some not, many in 2048x2048 resolution. The available pool of textures will grow over time.

You could check it if you like, it is

Nice, if I could make one suggestion since its your site. I was looking for a download button after clicking on a texture. Like the one I'm glancing at (Dirt) says "Maximum resolution 4864 x 2736" but I can't find where that maximum size is. – Ryan Sep 11 '15 at 18:37

This is an old link but in case anyone is still looking, is a nice royalty free texture site that has lots of seamless images, HDRI and some stock photography as well. Worth checking out.
