Free Photoshop resources????

I am looking for free Photoshop resources that can be used in making commercial 3d content. I do not want stuff I cannot use commercially or have too many restrictions. Do these exist?

You might try searching on ShareCG, as their content is free. I'm not sure if they have any Photoshop resources, but they might. Other than that, a Google search for "free Photoshop resources" might help.

If you are looking for tiles and such and brushes/styles you might check out renderosity's free zone.
Freestuff | Renderosity many items listed there are for personal and commercial use.
brushes and stock images
Obsidian Dawn Resources - Photoshop & GIMP Brushes, Tutorials, Images, Patterns, and more!
Commercial licenses are $3.00 for brush packs and $1.00 for stock images. Not totally free, but a fair deal and she's got some good stuff for textures and eye brushes and tutorials.
Another option might be to check out Advanced Photoshop and Photoshop Creative website. It's a magazine produced in the UK and this is a link to their resource section.
Resources | Advanced Photoshop - Free Photoshop Tutorials & Online Resources | Advanced PhotoShop Magazine - not sure but some of them may be free for commercial use they also offer tutorials.

Also Creative market if you sign up to get their news letters you get six free items every week. Usually fonts, web templates and mock ups, seamless tiles, brushes, textures, and styles. You also get a standard licence (this includes 1 commercial project with up to 500 sales) with the products and if they are updated you get the links to the updates as well.

Oh thanks for the reminder NA, as your mentioning Obsidian Dawn reminded that deviantArt has a lot of 2D graphic artists on it, and there's quite a bit of free resources there as well.

But, one should check the license for those resources before using them in something that will be distributed to others.

Just me covering all the bases........:)

I've spent SO much money at Creative!

Well, nothing compared to what I've spent on 3D stuff, but I have bought a few fonts and some logo packs and a bunch of watercolor packs.

I'm still looking for the perfect font for Sweete Brythe, It Be Reyn, and Flyte :p

I am getting back into doing texturing but on an old computer. So hopefully looking through this thread will help get some free resources.
Some questions. Having multiple brush sets, will that slow down Photoshop or would it just take up hard drive space only?
For texturing stuff and testing it in Poser, which file format should I save to, PSD or other? Need to keep file size down for memory purposes and harddrive reasons.
