    My brain has melted due to Christmas, help please :)

    All,

    I'm looking for tuts or resources to create/download backgrounds similar to the main (grey) one on http://www.btgraduates.com/.

    For the life of me, I can't remember what you call them.

    Thanks for any help.

    Richard

    That's just a small grey square, set as a repeating image.

    Are you talking about the grey behind the navigation, which does look textured to me, too, or the grey in the main body, which is what I thought you meant? Both are done with small repeating images, anyway.

    It does have a tiny texture repeating, 4px by 4px .png which you can just see here:

    It's basically just a grey square with a darker grey cross in it. I'm not sure if there is a particular name for it apart from seamless repeating pixel tiles.

    @bo5ton , can you re-attach the image? I think I accidentally deleted instead of approving it. My apologies.


    @rawkinrich100, This site has these type of background patterns and many more to choose from.

    I think the word you were looking for is "dithered".
