30 Free Wood and Metal Photoshop Patterns and Textures

By Tara Hornor

I find myself constantly reaching for wood and metal Photoshop patterns these days. Whether I’m trying to add a little texture to a website button element or grunging up a photo, I always seem to have a need. So, I pulled together some freebies to keep available when I need them and decided to share them with fellow DesignFestival fans.

The list here is divided into two parts. The first half includes wood textures and the second half includes metal textures. As always, be sure to double-check the designer’s Terms of Use before using a Photoshop pattern or texture in commercial design.
