NewTek Inc. has offered an early Christmas gift to all digital artists: its
sixth collection of free textures. Like the previous five, this one offers 50 high-resolution, un-retouched photo images. Most of the pictures, which cover the concrete, nature, soil, stone and wood categories, are in 2304 x 1728 resolution, with the rest at a slightly lower pixel count. A free membership to the NewTek Web site is required to download any of the texture collections.
