If you have been using stock photos for some time you know that your typical healthcare stock photos are often generic and lacking authenticity. It’s often hard to find real life images with real people that can illustrate your message. Luckily we have some really great free medical stock photos in our vaults that you can use to get your message clear across without seeming impersonal or even ridiculous.
First of all, these type of medical images must convey a certain trust and professionalism, although humorous images do have their place in some cases. Whether you are using medical photography for your hospital website, dentist, optical or medical publishing or even a simple facebook page, you have to choose wisely.
Medical illustrations are also a very good choice as they can illustrate a message that is hard or almost impossible to photograph with real people. Graphics of bacteria, illnesses and abstract medical backgrounds are often prove useful as well.
In this post I have handpicked 25 photos and illustration that you can use for your medical & healthcare related projects. You can use them as they are or modify them to your needs, no attribution needed. But be sure to check out the license on the download page before you use them.

I have posted a few interesting crystal textures in the past and today’s post is no different. These free grayscale crystal textures are from natural quartz stones found in the east part of Iceland and are made of silica and oxygen over a long period of time.
These rock crystals are full of sharp edges and tiny details that are really interesting and form all kinds of shapes and patterns. Crystal textures like this can be useful as both overlays and backgrounds in modern design works.
It’s always fun to work with different and unique textures like these, and as always, you can use them for commercial work as well. Without a doubt a nice addition to any texture arsenal. I hope you can find good use for the and be inspired to create interesting designs with them. Enjoy!

Free Vector Patterns are really useful for designers as they allow them to create seamless backgrounds and add them as textures to their designs. A seamless pattern can be placed side-by-side on all edges without creating a noticeable border in between.
The beauty about vector patterns is that the files are lossless, meaning that you can scale them up to the size you need without the loss of quality. Keep in mind that you need a vector program like Adobe Illustrator to edit the files but Photoshop will do if you only need to scale them up or down.
I have selected a range of vector patterns uploaded by one of our newest authors, Sara. Her illustrations have a unique style which is both cartoonish yet fresh and modern. You can view her vector portfolio here. All the free patterns below are free for commercial use. Please keep in mind that although some of the preview images are a bit compressed, the vector files you download are sharp and lossless.

Wooden textures are always useful for backgrounds and overlays and they just look so cool when done right. Today I have a set of 8 free worn wood textures that I shot of an old footbridge in East Iceland last summer. The wooden panels are really worn and chipped, with sand and gravel stuck in it’s cracks. It gives them a really vintage and grungy feel, I think.
Wooden textures are used a lot in web- and app design both as backgrounds or incorporated into the design. Different styles include super clean and realistic, while others are worn and grunge to suit the style of the brand.
For your inspiration, here is a showcase “on how to use wood textures in webdesign” from Line25. You’ll probably get some good ideas from that one.
Hopefully you can put this set of wooden textures into good use and incorporate them into your future designs. We would love to see the results, so feel free to post a comment below and let us know what you think. The size of all 8 textures is 181mb, so you might want to grab the Dropbox ZIP file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

Let’s start the year with a set of textures from the ancient Icelandic fishing village, Hellnar. It’s located in the area of Snæfellsnes Peninsula which has a lot of great scenery and a huge glazier as well. These free layered rock formation textures are from a cliff called Valasnös which has these amazing and unique rock formations along the shore.
I posted another set from the same area back in August 2017, and today’s textures are a great addition to that unique set of layered rock backgrounds. In the picture on the right you can see how the rock is formed, twisted and turned if you click it for a bigger image.
If you’re a designer you can use these 8 high resolution rock textures for all sorts of things. Such as backgrounds for print and web, photo-manipulations and patterns for your designs. You can print them on clothing, use them for stationary and business cards, or even create posters using them.
