One of my favorite textures that I've featured in this article, Nasty Cracks IV by Neriah-stock is a high resolution image of the sun-baked dirt, perhaps laying beneath where a mud puddle once was. The amount of detail in this shot is fantastic, and could be used for a ton of different applications, such as a texture overlay on logo design, digital paper for digital scrapbooking, and much, much more.
