This is a list of all the texture websites I recommend.  Most of these sites offer free seamless textures that can be used in SketchUp (Import -> image) and into Photoshop (Edit->Define Pattern).  There are too many textures to even count, so be selective!  You are going to need a bigger hard drive…  enjoy!

One of my all-time favorite places for seamless textures is Patrick Hoesly’s Blog and Flickr site.  Visit the blog, zooboingreview.blogspot.com/, to download more free Creative Commons textures.
