1000+ Metal Textures for 2D and 3D Designs

The opportunities are endless when it comes to the uses of texture images for designers. That is why, one of the categories in this blog is about textures. We already gave you a very comprehensive list of links where you can download quality but free free wood textures, old paper textures and free fabric textures. So this time around, let us look at another category of textures–the metal textures.

There are over a thousand high resolution free metal textures that you will find in this list which can be used for architectural renderings, animations, game design and any other computer graphics and artworks including web design. Most of these metal textures are also royalty free and can be used in almost any purpose. I hope you will also find these free metal textures useful in your design endeavors!
