Every graphic designer should have in his or her collection a large variety of bitmap textures. Quickly and easily add layers of distress and texture to your Illustrator and Photoshop graphics without creating huge files that slow down your computer. In Photoshop, these work as normal black and white bitmap images. The trick with bitmap images in Illustrator is that the white area becomes transparent and you can change the black area to any color. This huge set includes 48 high resolution bitmap textures such as cracks, fabric, leather, paper, stains, cutting board, denim, halftone swirl, fleece, and various other textures.
UPDATE: This collection now includes 2 format versions: 48 JPEG and 48 Bitmap TIFF files (works in Illustrator and Photoshop) - Available for instant download (204 MB)
