Free – Royalty Free High Resolution Tape Image


July 16, 2008

It has to be said that a bit of craft is great fun. Fiddling around with real life objects (as opposed to digital ones) is not only enjoyable but also allows you to create some fantastic digital effects that would be very hard to make using only Photoshop (although of course a bit of polishing on the computer will help to make the final project look even better). It’s amazing what a bit of tape will do – and it’s cheap too.

I’m not saying that these tape images are suitable for O2 or BP or some super corporate company, but they look great on a blog like mine – or yours! When you’ve got the hang of creating your own tape images you can go on to create other similar pictures. Different shades and textures of paper, stamps, packaging and postcards all make great resources. Get creatin’ folks.

I hope you enjoy this royalty free high resolution tape image. Tutorial to follow soon, it has Ben Blogged! (use this image for personal or commercial work but please do not redistribute or sell this file)
