Updates to Images

1 02 2010

I’ve spent the last part of last week and the weekend posting up some new photos to our new site (Free-3D-Textures)  I managed to get the people pages up, as well as the toys page.  There aren’t a lot of things yet on the toys page but since my husband is an avid toy collector (mostly hotwheels, corgi, buddyL, ertl and most types of collectible toys) there is no shortage of “boy toys” in this household. Since the largest number of them are currently in storage (awaiting the shelf-building project), it will take some time to get to them all, but I do have a small stock of images to process still, so there should soon be more on this page.

Besides the toy page, most of the stock photo pages have been updated with some new photos – the food page has a couple of great shots of a birthday cake, a few more photos on the men’s people page including a fire chief. I didn’t keep track of all the updates, but I’m pretty sure we’re approaching the 500 image mark at this point. There’s also some nice winter images in the landscapes section.

For those of you who know how to make use of PNG files, there are a few new files in that section as well – a couple of empty shotgun shells, some furniture,  a savings bank in the shape of a rooster, silo, muffins, clock and a few other recent things that might be useful. And of course, I’m sure that most image users realize they can also resave png files as .jpg files, right?

And, as is normal for our site, the textures are updated every week. This week, a few new red and black and blue and black ones in the abstract section, along with some new brick textures in the brick and tile section.

Oh, and for photoshop users, there’s a couple of new texture brushes in the Photoshop Brush Section. And yes…everything is still free!

400 Free Stock Photos…

…or thereabouts. I’ve been working away at getting the new site set up and there’s enough stock up there to make it’s announcement worthwhile.

Free-3D-Textures.com went live back in November, but up until January 2010, I hadn’t been able to get the stock photo section live. Now it is.

The automated gallery system is still not operating, but I’ve gone ahead and begun manual uploads and categorization of the images on the site.

There’s a couple of more sections to add  but you can have a look at the current sections which include:

Animals & Nature – broken down into sections like Birds & Fowl; Field, Farm and Forest Animals, Pets, and Trees and Flowers.

Buildings and Architecture – broken down into sections for Homes & Condos, Industrial & Office, Barns and Sheds, Interiors.

Food & Drink – which currently doesn’t have that much stock so you’ll find it all on one larger page, but this will broken into sections as I get the stock images uploaded.

General – This is a larger section and it’s broken down into categories, and then subjections. General Misc. (stuff I didn’t know where to put), Jewelry & Bling, Transportation, Books & Newspapers.

Holidays & Events – broken down into Christmas & New Year, Valentine’s Day, Celebrations ( this section will include stuff like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and other events). Once I have the remaining sections set up, there will also be sections for Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween and other yearly holidays.

Industry, Office, Business & Finance – pretty much what it says, industry & career type stuff, office supplies and equipment, money and finances.

Landscapes – currently broken into two sections; Winter and Spring, and Summer and Autumn. That’s just so I can get some stuff up quickly. Later each one will be broken into a single season. I still have hundreds of files to go through and upload, but for now they’re paired with a partner season.

The last two sections – People and Toys, should be up with some stock in them by early next week.

On the new site you’ll also find divisions for free Graphics, PNG files and a very large number of free textures and backgrounds, along with a few free photoshop brushes (mostly of textures) and a number of photoshop tutorials. Since the site was designed to be a “one-stop shop” for imaging and graphics it should make it a lot easier for you to access and find the things you want, all in one place.

This new site combines three of my blogs (this one, a texture one and a photography one) into one larger .com site, so hopefully, you’ll find something you like!
