    Free Photoshop Patterns

    Everyone loves freebies, and there are a lot of great free Photoshop resources available. However, there are also some that are not so great. To help you weed through the lot, we've put a list together of ten of the best websites you can visit to to find free Adobe Photoshop patterns. As with brush resources, most of these are available with generous licensing terms, so you can use them in virtually all your work.

    1. Adobe.com. Since they are the ones who actually make the program, it stands to reason that Adobe might have some outstanding Photoshop patterns. Not all of the patterns found on this site are free, however, so be sure to use the license type selector to choose the type of license you are interested in. Try Freeware, Open Source, or Free Distribution as options to get started.
