Well, you may have noticed that I have posted a lot of seamless wood backgrounds over the past few weeks. Well, now the collection is complete! (at least until I am in the mood to make some more :)
So here we have some great seamless textures and a selection of high resolution wood backgrounds, free for both personal and commercial use (attribution required).
Obviously it would depend on your project, billboard anyone? but all of these images are a minimum of a couple of thousand pixels wide and so should big enough to use as they are (some are considerably bigger).
How to tile seamless textures in Photoshop
There is probably multiple ways to do this and possibly easier ones too (always seems to multiple methods for anything in Photoshop) but this is how I do it. Most will already know, so you may scroll down, otherwise read on :)
1. Open the background image in Photoshop.
2. In the layer stack select the background and press Control J or right click and select duplicate layer. Do this three times so that with the background, you now have four copies.
3. Go to Image on the menu then down to Canvas size.
In the ‘new size’ area are width and height, it is probably showing, centimetres, inches or pixels, change the drop down to percent. Now in each text box change it from 100 to 200. The anchor part below will be in the centre, click on the top left corner. Press Ok.
4. Now in the layer stack click layer 1 and then click and hold on your image, drag it across to the right it will snap into place. Repeat for the other two layers moving them down and down to the bottom right corner.
5. Flatten the image and repeat if necessary.
Anyway, enough Photoshop, let’s see some see some textures and background images…
Free Seamless Wood Textures
Light Wooden textures
Another seamless wood texture, one of my last for a while, I have a pile of other stuff to put on This one is a nice light pine or plywood.
A free orange seamless wood texture background image. Only lightly orange, still could be pine or any one of a number of light coloured wooden background
Continuing on with the seamless wood textures here is another lightly coloured plywood or pine wooden background. This one has some great knots and woodgrain.
Here is a free nice light pine or plywood wooden background. A few knots and grain make a nice pattern with overdoing it and keeping it subtle if tiled in a seamless wood texture.

Free oak texture in a seamless wooden background image. Well it’s actually a generated picture so it is just guess that it is oak

Seamless Woven Wicker Basket Wooden Background
Probably should have both images into one post, oh well. Anyway here is another wicker basket weave seamless texture. I’d make the same adjustments on this as I would on the last (I’m sure it will be in related posts if you haven’t seen it). This one has a different woven style, but same …
here is a seamless basket weave texture. It is a photoshop generated image as you can see, I’d be tempted to tile it until I had the desired size and then add a light grunge layer, lower the saturation and add a rough lighter vignette. I would have done this but it would ruin the …
Bonus Wood Texture
Didn’t really fit in with the others, so we will call it a bonus
Here is a large seamless wooden texture of an old greenish wood panel image, bit of grunge, dirt and marks over the wood grain.
