Free Camouflage Patterns for Illustrator & Photoshop

Read the article

Download this pack of military camouflage patterns to create infinitely repeating camo backgrounds for your designs. Each camouflage pattern is available in vector format so it can be used at any size imaginable, as well as a JPEG format for everyday use in Photoshop.

Most of the camo patterns I found on the web either didn’t repeat as a tileable pattern, or were just made of unrealistic blobs, so I decided to have a go at creating my own camo pattern files and share them with you all. These camo swatches are based on the popular patterns used by the US military during the 80s and 90s, as well as the more modern digital type pattern currently in use today.

Each file comes in vector and raster format. To use in Adobe Illustrator, just drag the graphic into the swatches palette, then add this swatch as a fill to any object. To use the JPEG files in Photoshop, go to Edit > Define Pattern. This pattern can then be used along with the fill tool or the layer style options, such as Pattern Overlay.
