    Wow! They’re so subtle, I can’t even see them! lol. Maybe I need new glasses.

      It’s difficult to see the patterns on such a narrow strip. Check out the download for the full effect.

    • @kellymulhall – It’s probably the monitor I have an ol’ LCD at the moment (switching to thunderbolt eventually) and the pixels aren’t deep enough for me to get a view of the patterns clearly enough. I would have to look really close. :)

      @kellymulhall : It made me chuckle. Years ago when I was probably the last person still using 2 CRT monitors, I had the same problem with blacks and greys. They were just too old. A few months later when I looked at the same graphics on my 2 LCD monitors I could see so much detail.

      @Orman : Thanks for these.

  2. Nice work man!

    its hard to find patterns that are this subtle.. usually i have to scale down bigger ones and that doesnt always work.. so thanx a lot

  14. These are great for backgrounds, they’re not too distracting

  15. Great stuff Orman. You should also put which plugins you use etc to acquire users and manage them. Just saying… :p

    Hi, I just found your website today as I was looking for free textures and art. I am probably a good software engineer but most certainly an awful graphic designer. Thanks to you I can now populate some backgrounds and other things with pleasant visuals.

    So thanks!

    p.s.: The only issue is that I don’t have photoshop and don’t really plan to use it. But the jpeg will be just fine I guess.

  22. Patrick

    Very nice! Thanks.

  23. Corbs
