I’ve literally driven miles to produce my latest set of free design resources. These 24 Dirt Textures are created taken layers upon layers of road grime from long motorway journeys, processed into high resolution JPG textures and PNG files with transparent backgrounds. They’re great for adding dirty backgrounds to your designs, or applying to layer masks to distress your artwork. Being taken from real surface grime means these digital resources help you produce authentic effects with intricate details, which just can’t be replicated with built in Photoshop filters alone.

24 High Resolution Dirt Textures in JPG and PNG Format

This collection of textures contains 24 files, 12 dirt textures in JPG format and 12 dirt textures in PNG format with transparent backgrounds. Dimensions range from 4000-6000px at 300ppi resolution, making them ideal for all kinds of artwork, including high resolution print work. Being generic file types means these assets are compatible across all design software.
