How long has Grunge Textures been online?

The site was launch on December 9th, 2006.

Who operates this site?

My name is Darren Hester. I'm a photography enthusiast and freelance designer. I own a small design company called Pixel Perfect Digital, Inc. which operates Grunge Textures. It's pretty much a one man show. I design and maintain the website, take the photos, and handle all customer support.

Can I advertise on Grunge Textures?

Sorry, our site is ad-free. It's supported 100% by texture sales.

Do you accept submissions from other photographers?

Not currently. We might consider this in the future.

How do you apply a texture to a photograph?

Textures can be applied in a variety of ways to acheive different effects. Most techniques involve adding a texture to a new layer above your photograph, and then adjustments are made to the layer blending mode and opacity. Check out these Photoshop Tutorials that explain the process in detail.

How can these textures be used?

You can use them for most anything provided you don't resale or redistribute the images themselves. For details, please review our Royalty-Free Commercial License.

Why do you display all your textures horizontally?

Honestly it was a design decision. We think it's a better viewing experience when all the textures are displayed the same way. It's very easy to rotate them in Photoshop if needed.

Do you add photos on a regular basis?

Yes. New textures are added each month. Click the "Newest" link on the top menu bar to see the latest photos that we have posted.

What format are the photos in?

All Grunge Textures photos are in high-quality JPG format.

What image sizes do you offer?

  • SMALL (900 pixels x 600 pixels) Free
  • MEDIUM (2100 pixels x 1400pixels) $2
  • LARGE (3300pixels x 2200pixels) $3

Do you offer texture packs/bundles?

We sure do! You can view them here. You get 15 themed textures bundled into a single ZIP file for only $10. That's just 67 cents per image! We give you a huge discount when purchasing textures in a pack.

What payments do you accept?

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Paypal.

Is my payment secure?

Absolutely! We use PayPal as our secure payment processor. All payments will be made over a secure encrypted connection so credit cards numbers and private details can not be stolen in transit, this is as secure as online ordering can be. We never handle or even see your credit card or bank account details. Everything is processed securely by PayPal.

Once I make my payment, how long does it take to receive my purchase?

You will be directed to a download page immediately after your payment is made. We also send you an email receipt that contains a download link(s) for your records.

Do you offer refunds?

Once your purchase is made we can not offer a refund. The reason for this policy is because we offer full access to the digital file and, as such, there is no way for our products to be returned. On a rare occasion we will make exceptions on a case by case basis.
