High Resolution Tiling Mosaic Tile Courtyard Textures 2048 Pixels


I love these (If I do say so myself! lol)

They're made from photo stock of smooth ceramic tile patterns which I have transformed into 2048 x 2048 pixel, tiling Mosaic courtyard textures.

As far as I am aware, there are not too many high resolution textures of Mosaic because taking a photo of an actual Greek or Mediterranean Mosaic floor is not too easy.

First, you have the issue of people usually standing on it.
Then you need to be positioned high above it, perhaps on a balcony (Which would cast a shadow)
Failing that, a very high ladder and a steady hand.

Plus, you would need a wide angled lens to be able to get each corner in one photo.

You could take several shots and piece them together but trust me, I have tried that and it's hard as the light source varies from one angle to another and then you have to "Photoshop" the light gradients out using something like the High Pass filter, which is great but not always reliable. 

Of course most real Mosaic tile floors are broken and worn away with age and natural weathering which is sometimes a nice feature to have but again,  causes a massive amount of post editing when you come to make them seamless.

Therefor, there are almost no photo realistic texture resources of this genre so I am extra pleased to have managed to create them at such a high resolution of 2048 Pixels.

You can't really see the level of detail in the promo image above so here's a full sized sample:

They can be purchased for use within Second Life for 450 Linden Dollars by clicking this SLurl

They will also be available from the SL Marketplace.
