100 free backgrounds

#1 Post by Celianna » Fri Aug 26, 2011 10:32 pm

I'm an amateur photographer, mainly keeping myself busy with studio stuff, but before that, I took random snapshots of just about everything. Five years later, I realize, I could let the visual novel community use this as their backgrounds. I live in the Netherlands, so you'll mostly get Dutch stuff, but there are some American and even Japanese things in there.

Because I didn't want people/license plates in the photographs to be recognizable, and because the quality of some of them sucked, I added a filter on it to make it a bit more cartoony. This is what they look like:

You can easily build on this yourself by taking any photograph you own, pop it into Photoshop and using two filters. The first is Poster Edges, the second is Cutout. Below are the settings:

You can easily create your own that way.

All pictures are 800x600, and there's about 102 of them, including:
- Classroom
- Various houses
- Forests/parks
- Mall
- Fast food restaurant
- Some Japanese/Chinese/Egyptian buildings
- Streets
- Bridges
- Shops etc.

Download the package to see all of them. Link is here: http://www.mediafire.com/?me7yu6p79lb61kb

I like the nature ones. Makes me wish I could see the non-filtered photos. :)

:O These are so nice! I might be able to create something awesome (and actually original for once D:) with these. Thanks for sharing :) Mind if I put this into the OELVN wiki for the free resources?
